Service Contract Fraud

service contractToday it is very common auto fraud among car dealerships to charge their customers for a service contract that customers did not want or authorize to. More often the salesperson will trick the customer by telling that the warranty is part of the deal, when the customer is actually being charged for the service contract.

You can avoid this auto fraud if you read every line of the purchase contract carefully. Make sure you closely examine the Service Contract line of the contract.

If there are any documents referring to the service contract included with the sales contract then you have most likely unknowingly purchased a service contract. You should immediately contact the service provider and try to cancel such contracts. In most cases you will be able to be refunded for the unused portion of the contract. Another thing you should do is filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and with the Department of Consumer Affairs.
