The year was 2007, I was at Midway Chevrolet to trade in my low mileage (under 25k) 2003 silverado. For some reason this took about 8 hours and I did not read the final paperwork before I signed. Unbeknownst to me I had agreed to pay $38,500 Plus my trade-in for a 2006 extended cab, long bed  Chevy Silverado, which had an actual list price of $22,500. I initially contacted my lawyer, who informed me that Midway Chevrolet had lawyers on retainer and I was advised not to pursue via lawsuit.

Take a look at this car deal from a different angle you might find something

AUTHOR: Auto Dealer Fraud Investigator - (United States of America)

I am in automotive industry fraud investigator. Call up your automotive lender and ask them to send you a copy of the credit application they received from your dealer. I know of several dealerships customers that have been placed in fraudulent auto loans. Here's how to find out if that's happened to you. You know about how much money you made during the time of this purchase. Now call up your lender ask for a copy of the credit application that they received from your dealer and take a look at it and find out if it's what you filled out. Take a look at the dollar amount that was been reported to the bank as to how much money you make.

A lot of times dealerships will lie to the lenders behind your back if you have good credit and make the bank believe you make more money than you do. Go Google Huntington national Bank Chevrolet. And read what pops up. I am willing to bet that up to 10% of the people in this country are in a fraudulent auto loans and they don't even know it. I don't believe there's a limitation A statued limitations on fraud I'm not sure if there's a limitation on it or not.

It doesn't matter if the dealership has an attorney on retainer or not most all dealerships in this country have an attorney on retainer. Even if they do that's not something you should be afraid of. Several years ago I went up against the largest RV dealership in the country as an expert witness. It was reported or claimed by the RV buyer but there were some big problems with the motorhome that they bought. They were told it was a brand-new motor home. After I got done they found out that it had been wrecked before they bought it. After the RV dealerships attorney took my deposition they decided they wanted to settle out of court.

Through my research I have proof that they submitted fraudulent documents to court with forge signatures on them. They didn't want me to testify in court and show a jury what I had discovered so they decided to settle out of court. It strikes me that your attorney would want to steer you away from this.

Do what I tell you contact your automotive lender and tell them that you lost your day planner or your address book and you're trying to rebuild it. And you need a copy of that credit application because it has personal data that you want to install in your new address book. A lot of dealerships not all but a lot of them will lie to the automotive lender to get people approved and like I said up to 10% of people could very well be in fraudulent auto loans if their cars are financed

My question to you is do you have good credit. If you do we need to dig deep into this car deal. Most lenders will only approve loans that are structured a certain way. If you have any questions regarding this after you get a copy of your credit application please email the editor at rip off report.com. If you find something questionable

I know Chevrolet dealerships in this state that have submitted fraudulent loan applications two lenders behind the car buyers backs. I'm not here to bash auto dealers I'm here to help clean up the industry. And there are some people that work at various car dealerships that will do that just to get a bigger paycheck.

Automotive lenders rarely doublecheck auto deals that are submitted to them by new car or used car dealerships if the customers have great credit. Your automotive lender has a copy of the credit application that was sent to them from your dealer. They keep that on file

Do what I'm asking you to do and once you get a copy of that credit application contact the editor at ripoff report.com. I know of a Chevrolet dealership right here in the valley that submitted a fraudulent auto loan application to a lender in Ohio and after it was all done I got the car buyer out of the fraudulent loan.

read the contract?????

AUTHOR: trst - (United States of America)

I feel for the person who was ripped off and wonder if the person that said they should of read the contract must work for a car dealer or has not purchased a vehicle. Those contracts are so long it would take hours and hours to read WITH an attorney!! I thank this person for a heads up. The person who replied it was the buyers fault, the dealer should be trust worthy!! Used just about to buy a twenty thousand dollar truck from them, I changed my mind.

So they lose business because of theirs greed, and I wonder how many other people changed their minds after reading this article.

Do auto dealerships really charge too much?

AUTHOR: Ronny g - (USA)

This is news to me. Good thing I frequent this website. Next time I buy I car I will read the contract and also check the value before I sign it. That seems to make sense.

Inside Talks...............

AUTHOR: Auto Dealer Fraud Investigator - (United States of America)

go to this URL and look up any dealer's business name and see if they have any cases againest them. Pick any dealer's business name you wish.........

Next go to this URL and read what Rebeca posted. READ IT REAL GOOD.............

http://www.ripoffreport.com/auto-dealers/midway-chevrolet/midway-chevrolet-phoenix-sco-8em7c.htm

Law firms hire me to help them win cases in a court of LAW.  I know how to spot Fraud in the auto industry.  Things like payment packing, CSI Diversion,  Fraud loan applications behind the buyer's backs. Call it BANKING / WIRE FRAUD. Dealers do that all the time.  Call up your auto lender and ask them to send you a copy of your credit application, tell them a white lie. Tell them your dog chewed up your address book and you need a copy of your credit app to rebuild your address book. you might get a big fat shock once you get it.  If you would like to have a indepth review of your car dealer contact the Editor at www.ripoffreport.com and ask him if he would contact me and he and I can review your car deal.

You never know what can be brought to the surface. maybe all good maybe some shocking news.....

What Would Be The Basis of Your Suit?

AUTHOR: Jim - (USA)

You freely admitted here you DID NOT READ the contract BEFORE signing it!!!  How smart was that?  The attorney probably had a hard time containing his laughter.  YOU were the one who failed to be a smart consumer.  They wrote up the contract and YOU failed to read it.  The reason the attorney advised you as he/she did was you have absolutely NO CASE!  They have a contract with YOUR signature on it which means YOU agreed to all the terms contained therein whether you read them or not!  Incredible!
