Troubleshooters: Update on Wilmington Nissan story
We have an update on a Troubleshooters report we brought you earlier this year.
Pamela Pickett put a $1,000 cash down payment on a used car at Wilmington Nissan. The salesman pocketed her money, and the dealership sold the car to someone else.
Wilmington Nissan refused to give her a refund, so we aired a story about it.
Attorney Chad Hogston agreed to take Pickett’s case pro bono and sued Wilmington Nissan for the refund.
The case recently settled out of court. The terms of the agreement are confidential, but we do know the salesman, Leon Burwell, was arrested and convicted of fraud since our story aired. He is now in prison and no longer works for Wilmington Nissan.
