What is Auto Dealer Fraud?
Auto dealer fraud refers to any deceptive or illegal practices auto dealerships use to deceive consumers during car buying or leasing. The most common forms of auto dealer fraud include the following:
- Odometer Fraud: Odometer fraud occurs when a dealer rolls back or resets the odometer to make the vehicle appear to have lower mileage than it does.
- Misrepresentation of Vehicle History: Dealerships may misrepresent the vehicle’s history, such as failing to disclose that the car has been in an accident or a flood.
- Financing Fraud: Financing fraud occurs when a dealer inflates the price of the car, charges excessive fees, or lies about the terms of the loan or lease agreement.
- Bait and Switch: A dealership may advertise a low price, but when the consumer arrives, they are told the car is no longer available and offered a more expensive vehicle.
- Add-on Fraud: Add-on fraud occurs when a dealer adds additional features or services to the vehicle without the consumer’s knowledge or consent.
