California Car Dealer Fraud

dealer fraudWhen you purchase a car, truck, motor home, motorcycle, or other vehicle from a car dealer, the dealership is obligated to disclose to you the correct information about the history and condition of the vehicle that you are buying. The failure of the dealership to disclose any such information is referred to as dealer fraud.

Some other dealer practices that constitute dealer fraud include odometer rollback, the failure to disclose prior accident damage, such as flood damage, the failure to disclose that the vehicle was a lemon law buy-back, and the failure to reveal that the vehicle has a salvage title.

Dealer fraud can lead to serious safety hazards, one of which is costly repairs. If you think you’ve been a victim of a dealer fraud the first thing you should do is to contact a dealer fraud attorney, who will review your case.
