From the Consumer Advocate's statement:

Antiguo Cuscatlán, January 24, 2020. For not delivering the cars, for which consumers paid large sums of money, the company Inversiones Latinoamericanas, S.A. de C.V., (COINVERLAT, S.A. de C.V.) and Cristian Javier Pineda Reyes, who operated the company "MICARRO SV", are facing a collective complaint activated by the Consumer Defense Office, in defense of the rights and interests of consumers aggrieved by the breach of contract.

The Consumer's Defense Office informed the Attorney General's Office on Friday of the pertinence of the complaint, so that the possible commission of the crime of fraud by the mentioned suppliers, to the detriment of the consumers, could be investigated.

The Consumer Defense Office informs the public that the suppliers denounced were dedicated to the import and sale of used vehicles, bought - mostly - in the United States of America, through auctions, and had as a "modus operandi", to ask consumers for advances of money to reserve the vehicle and sign contracts of promise to sell.

Despite having entered the country, the vehicles were never delivered to the people who made the agreed payments. In some cases, it was detected that the vehicles were abandoned in the fiscal premises, and then auctioned off by the General Customs Directorate, following the legal procedures established in the Central American Uniform Customs Code (CAUCA).

Through the activation of the collective complaint, we seek that Inversiones Latinoamericanas, S.A. de C.V., (COINVERLAT, S.A. de C.V.) and Cristian Javier Pineda Reyes, return to consumers their money, given the breach of contract, in accordance with Articles 13 paragraph three and 13-D, of the Consumer Protection Law (LPC).
