used car damage photo 300x203 - Car Dealership Fraud Attorney Serving Germantown, MDMore than 90,000 people live in Germantown, making this census-designated place the third most densely populated community in Maryland. Germantown and surrounding areas like Gaithersburg, Boyds, Wildcat Forest and Clarksburg are becoming increasingly popular places for young families to settle down because of their close proximity to major commuter arteries like Interstate 270. While the Germantown area is rich with history, especially in connection to the Civil War, most of its development has come in the last three decades.

Manipulating Interest Rates to Increase Profit in Germantown, MD

The automobile business is extremely competitive, and car dealers in Germantown, Wildcat Forest, Clarksburg and Boyds sometimes advertise vehicles at prices that would see them lose money. This means that salespeople and finance managers must find a way to increase the selling price. This is sometimes done by selling aftermarket products like warranties, alarms and paint protection, but forgery and fraud can also inch prices higher. Fraud also includes the dealership representing on a credit application that a buyer’s income is more than it really is.

Some people might say that dealers rarely forge signatures or initials, but these practices occur in all parts of the country. In many cases, the finance contracts sent to lenders with forged initials and signatures contain higher prices and lower interest rates, which can change the monthly car payment and make it higher. Or, they use their financial skills to keep your payment the same while still committing forgery and fraud.  A customer suing a car dealership could seem like a David versus Goliath situation, but the auto fraud attorneys at Whitney, LLP, can even the odds and have represented many buyers successfully.

Concealing Accident and Flood Damage in Germantown, MD

Another common reason for suing a car dealership is undisclosed accident or flood damage. Hiding a salvage title, flood damage, or a serious collision is a deceptive practice and is illegal under Maryland law. Title washing is a practice dealers use to remove information that would reveal that a car was declared a total loss because of accident or flood damage. This is usually done by manipulating the title itself or moving the car between states until the designation falls off the title.

Auto Dealer Fraud and Misrepresentation Attorney

Finding a lawyer to sue a car dealership after being sold an unsafe or totaled vehicle often seems daunting. Similarly, car buyers often do not know how to handle a situation where their income was inflated on a credit application, their signature forged, or when their monthly payment is higher than expected.  However, the attorneys at Whitney, LLP, are experienced in this area and know about the many tricks and scams used in the automobile business.

Whitney, LLP, has years of experience holding car dealers accountable for fraud, forgery, lying and overcharging. Our attorneys can check your paperwork for forged initials or other discrepancies and then explain the legal options available.  If you believe that a car dealer was dishonest with you, you should contact the experienced auto fraud attorneys at Whitney, LLP, today to request a free consultation.
