The FCAA said Friday it’s issued a cease and desist order and the unlicensed business is no longer authorized to sell vehicles to the public.

Consumers are reminded there are specific warranties and legislative protections offered under The Consumer Protection and Business Practices Act that do not apply to private vehicle sales.
