Q. Can I sue the place I bought my car from for falsifying the amount I paid for my down-payment?
A: Dear consumer, Yes, dealerships have been known to falsify the amount of the down payment for their own benefit. This is fraud. Now that you've discovered it, you should attempt to correct it as soon as possible. Unfortunately, rewriting the sales contract is another opportunity for a dishonest dealer to set a trap for the consumer. You should contact an attorney with experience with in this area before returning to the dealership. Best regards, Dan LeBel
Q. I have received an email requesting I pay or they will send me to court, I have never received any legitimate info
A: Your suspicion seems justified. This has the earmarks of a phishing scam. Since you haven't lost any money it is unlikely your local police department will get involved. You should report it to the FTC. To do so, forward the message to the Anti-Phishing Working Group at reportphishing@apwg.org.
Q. Seller did not fully disclose mileage despite claiming original miles.
A: Dear auto purchaser, Federal statutes were enacted to protect consumers from odometer fraud. For the reasons you mention and others, misrepresenting the actual mileage of a used vehicle can cause serious problems. You should contact a competent attorney who has a specialized consumer law practice. Good luck, Dan LeBel
