International Motor Productions Stole $500 and LIED THROUGH THEIR TEETH Carrollton Texas
*Consumer Comment: My Experience with International Motor Productions
After many questions about the actual car -- I asked, "do you allow potential customers to take the car to their own mechanic to check it out?"
"Oh yes!" they replied. "Of course we do - as long as it's not too far away".
I drove to this company to test drive the car. I again asked about my own mechanic checking the car before I would even consider purchasing it.
And once again, they said "yes, of course".
But before I even test drove the car - they wanted a check for $500.00 and for me to sign a paper - which said "NO REFUNDS". Before I signed -- I asked about the "no refunds" -- and was told it was "merely a technicality in order to take the car off the lot". They also assured me the check would not be deposited - it was merely a "safeguard".
The test drive was fine. I told them I would pick it up from them the next morning & take it to my mechanic, and return it as soon as the mechanic was finished - which I did. The car was off of their lot for a total of 7 -8 hours.
The estimate I received from my mechanic, to get the car up to par - was several THOUSAND dollars! (he is trustworthy - and I have used him for years). I took the estimate to the company when I returned the car, was told they WOULD NOT negotiate on the price - and I politely said, "thank you and good-bye".
TO MY SURPRISE - THEY DID DEPOSIT THE CHECK - which cleared. When I called to ask why it was deposited - especially after they stated it wouldn't be deposited, the response was "well, you signed the paper, & it said no refunds".
So basically, they deceived me and STOLE MY MONEY! My attorney says "these types" of companies - are notorious for this kind of blatant thievery. He assures me that in court - judges are very familiar with these types of rip-off artists - and that I'll have my $500, plus.
Of course - I hope to have a good update to report for International Motor Productions (full refund of money). But that will be completely up to them!
DON'T BELIEVE THEM!
