Automobile Fraud

Avoiding and Resolving Automobile Fraud

For many of us, the purchase of an automobile is a significant financial transaction… quite possibly one of the biggest you’ll make outside of buying a home. That is why it is completely reasonable to want that purchase to be “by the book.” Sadly, this is not always the case.  In addition, even if your vehicle has been repossessed and you have been sued, you still have rights to make sure that the company has sent you the proper notices when disposing of your vehicle, etc.

New and used vehicle purchases alike can fall victim to such issues as:

  • Misleading or illegal advertising
  • Violation of Vehicle Title Statutes
  • Illegal Charges or Add-On Fees (like Dealer Fees and Pre-Delivery Service Fees)
  • Wrongful Repossession
  • Failure to follow the law when repossessing your vehicle
  • Failure to provide adequate notice prior to disposing of a repossessed vehicle
  • Misrepresentation of Prior Accidents
  • Odometer Fraud
  • Failure to Provide Paperwork
  • Non-disclosure of Prior Rental Status
  • “Yo-Yo” or Spot Delivery Financing
  • Unauthorized credit pulls, or other violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act
  • Violations of the Equal Credit Opportunity Act
  • Violations of the Truth in Lending Act
