We've told you about the youth market, the senior market, and ethnic markets. But there's one market we seem to have overlooked -- felines. That didn't stop some overly zealous employees of Seaview Subaru, in Westbrook, Conn.: according to a complaint filed by the state attorney general's office, Seaview "sold" Subaru cars to any number of made-up customers, including Sidney Chatpuma and Maxwell Puma, who happened to be one employee's cats.
The alleged purpose? To allow the dealership to file false claims for warranty work on the unsold cars with the auto manufacturer. (The cars were later sold to real customers.) That, at any rate, is what the Connecticut state police charge. Then again, maybe the cats were just good customers. . . .
