To settle a lawsuit alleging it used "bait and switch" tactics to sell used cars, a New Jersey dealership will refund consumers and pay the state up to a total of $144,000, according to theattorney general's office.

Global Auto Inc, which also did business as Auto Collection Group, admitted no liability or wrongdoing in agreeing to the settlement. The state claimed in its lawsuit filed last year the dealership allegedly misrepresented car prices, required consumers to sign blank sales documents, and failed to disclose to the consumers any previous damage to cars, among other allegations.
