The Car Dealership Forged My Signature

It is an unfortunate fact that dishonest Landover, Bladensburg and Camp Springs car dealers may commit forgery in the course of running their businesses.

 If your monthly payments, interest rate, or loan amount is higher or lower than what you agreed to while at the dealership, it is a red flag that you may be the victim of forgery and fraud.

Other Dishonest Car Dealer Schemes

Dishonest Landover, Largo and Bowie car dealers do not have one favorite method of lying when they are trying to commit auto fraud. Instead, they have several tried-and-true schemes for overcharging. Their particular choice of scam depends on what can make them the most money under the circumstances.

One illegal action is odometer fraud, which involves the dealer disabling or rolling back the odometer to trick you into believing that it is selling you a better car. This can land a dealer in prison, and it is the basis for damages.

Another form of misrepresentation may also extend to a dealer’s online price advertising. Lying online about a car’s price is prohibited, and you may be able to get your money back when suing a car dealership for misleading advertising.

Spot delivery violations are a way that dealers prey on buyers who have bad credit. The dealer will persuade the buyer to drive the car off the lot. If financing is not approved, the dealer may try to  substitute a loan at a much higher rate or other terms that are worse for the buyer. Dealers must return trade-ins and down payments when financing is not approved, and allow the customer to cancel the deal.

Whitney, LLP’s auto fraud lawyers help car buyers fight back against a variety of dealership schemes.
