Advertising Unnecessary Accessories
Often after signing the paperwork car buyers discover that they have been charged for unnecessary accessories or options they never agreed to. Although most dealerships will only charge car buyers for the options they authorize, there are unscrupulous dealerships that include many items that were never discussed.
The best way to avoid this dealer fraud is to carefully read every line of the documents you sign. During the negotiations always ask the dealer if the price includes any unnecessary accessories or options that come with the vehicle. Carefully examine the Cash Price Vehicle and the Cash Price of the unnecessary accessories and make sure there are no items listed that you did not authorize.
If you believe you have been a victim of auto fraud, contact the dealer and demand that they refund any amounts that you did not authorize. File a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and make a complaint with the Department of Consumer Affairs.
