Defendants operated a driving school which offered classroom and on-the-road driving instructions. In March 2010, Defendants' surety bond was cancelled for non-payment of the premium. After the cancellation of the bond, the Ohio Department of Public Safety revoked Defendants' license to operate a driving school. Defendants continued to offer driving instruction to consumers after the revocation of the license. During 2009 and 2010, Defendants accepted money from consumers as down payments for the purchase of driving instructions and then failed to provide the services within eight weeks and failed to refund the consumers' monies. Defendants committed unfair and deceptive acts in violation of the CSPA by accepting money from consumers for goods or services and then failing to provide such goods or services within eight weeks or to refund the consumers' monies and by failing to maintain a statutory agent with the Ohio Secretary of State. Defendants committed unconscionable acts in violation of the CSPA by accepting payment from consumers for a consumer transaction while knowing of the consumers' inability to obtain a substantial benefit from the subject of the transaction. Defendants ordered to pay $15,000 in consumer restitution, $50,000 as a civil penalty (suspended), and $15,000 in attorney fees (suspended).
