Inflated repair bills to customers and insurance firms by hundreds of thousands of dollars. Declared repairable cars as total losses, then sold them to salvage yards. Arranged for cars to be reclassified from totaled to repairable to mislead Mitsubishi about company assets. Earned more than $1 million in inflated draws from construction loans.

The follow-up indictment says Stephen Cohen ordered employees nationwide to charge for work they falsely claimed Value mechanics performed on fleet cars still under warranty. In September, the Cohens and Mitsubishi officials resolved their civil suits against each other in what one attorney called "a global settlement" that ended what some said may have been the costliest legal battle in South Florida history. The Cohens had sued for $65 million, the car maker for $31 million, and the case was believed to have generated more than $20 million in legal fees.
