2/3 of NHTSA Complaints about Tesla are "FAKE"

“After a review of hundreds of Tesla customer complaints filed with NHTSA since 2016 through present day in 2018, I can confirm that at least two-thirds of them are fake.”

They compared them against complaints about BMW, Audi, and other automakers and found that they were framed very differently.

Complaints about Tesla were classified as “likely fake” when they appeared to be submitted by the same sources without valid information about the vehicle like VIN.

Several complaints are all written in full caps, signed “A concerned citizens” and often even admit that they are filing complaints about a vehicle that they don’t own.

Apparently we get many fake complaints here
Real owners can spot them. I just flag them.

The fake complaints may be a criminal matter and if tied to short sellers an SEC violation.
