Payton Wells complaints taken to Attorney General

The Indiana Attorney General’s Office has received five complaints about car dealerships owned by Indianapolis auto dealer Payton Wells, according to The Herald-Bulletin of Anderson.

However, the newspaper didn’t report the precise nature of the complaints or whether the office plans to take legal action. Some consumers are irked that their business with the dealerships has been put on hold while Wells sorts out his legal difficulties.

Payton Wells Chevrolet at 1510 N. Meridian St. along with Ford and Chrysler dealerships in Anderson were padlocked in late January after Regions Bank sued Wells for $2.9 million, claiming he defaulted on a $3 million loan.

The Attorney General’s Office wasn’t immediately available to answer questions.
