RIPLEY – A Parkersburg couple alleges they were fraudulently induced into purchasing a vehicle in their name.
Kayla Jenkins and Darren Cline filed a complaint July 14 in Jackson Circuit Court against Thornhill Automotive Inc. and Ally Financial Inc. citing the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act and alleging fraud.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that the defendants allegedly promised a payment of $1,000 to the plaintiffs should they agree to be co-signors for a purchased vehicle in 2015. They alleged that the vehicle was actually placed in their name and that they have suffered monetary loss and damage to their credit.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek injunction against the defendant, damages, consequential and incidental damages, actual damages, statutory penalties, all legal fees, interest and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Kristina Thomas Whiteaker and David L. Grubb of The Grubb Law Group in Charleston. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Lora Dyer.
