Auto Fraud: Car Packing
In the type of auto fraud known as “Car packing” the customer is quoted an inflated monthly payment. If the consumer accepts this amount, the dealership adds accessories to the purchase contract to reach the inflated quoted price. The accessories may include alarms, service contracts, GAP insurance, paint/fabric protection, etc.
The customer should know that the accessories are optional and that they’re paying extra for the accessories. Often the accessories are represented as “included” with the vehicle.
