JND Legal to oversee Tate’s Auto Settlement refunds
ST. MICHAELS, Ariz. — The Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission announce the Federal Trade Commission has hired JND Legal Administration to oversee the refund process for eligible consumers who purchased a vehicle from Tate’s Auto after January 1, 2013 and later had their vehicle repossessed.
The owner of Tate's Auto Group was accused of manipulating consumer information on financial documents, according to a FTC complaint filed in 2018. The settlement was reached last summer and approved by a federal judge in Arizona.
It's believed as many as 4,000 consumers were impacted.
Tate's Auto had locations in Gallup and the Arizona communities of Holbrook, Show Low and Winslow. Tribal officials believe many of the customers were members of the Navajo Nation.
The Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission says their members who bought cars would have been greatly harmed.
According to the FTC website JDN Legal Administration will be sending out emails to people who are eligible for the refund. The email address TatesAuto@jndla.com is the official email that will be sent out to individuals with information as to how to receive the refund. If you receive an email from TatesAuto@jndla.com FTC recommends to follow the instructions in the email. The email will also provide options of updating your mailing address to receive a physical check or request to have the refund to be delivered via PayPal.
If you have not received an email and believe you are eligible for the settlement refund please call 1-888-964-0009 to check if you are eligible. For more information about the refund process please visit the FTC’s website: https://www.ftc.gov/enforcement/refunds/tates-auto-refunds.
