Went in there on a Sat / Sun .. took a test drive on a car ...   all the happy happy hugs and all that ... check your credit score and all that ..  and then sign a 'holding check' --- just to hold the car for you .. not to cash it ...  of course when the check bounces because there's not enuf funds (NSF) .. then you're pissed and on the phone .. to get the run around by the manager guy  who says it was the billing department .. he's out and you can try him in the after noon ( if it's morning ) or try him in hte morning ( if its afternoon) ...  this goes on for days then a week or so ... and they still try and get you to buy the car by deducting that amount from it or making it into a discount ... 
after that fiasco i said no way do i want to deal with you guys .. dishonesty prevails after you make a 'good faith check' JUST TO <"HOLD"> a car for you ... (it was not a down payment or deposit ) ... 

It took a long time but the charge was eventually reversed through diligence with my bank...
boy the hours of life lost .. fealt like i was working in the federal government or an architecture house that had a government contract .. much time lost frivolously because of deception in the car dealership industry ( pretty sure its a car dealership thing that happens at all dealerships) ...

You got lucky.

AUTHOR: Flynrider - (USA)

POSTED: Thursday, December 29, 2011

   There is no such thing as a check written "just for holding".     You wrote a worthless check?  Why would a worthless piece of paper hold a car for you?

   You're lucky that they didn't turn it over to the local D.A.  Writing bogus checks is against the law and you can be prosecuted for it.   While we're at it, post dated checks are also valid on the day they are written.    You appear to have a lot to learn about how checks work.

dishonesty prevails after you make a 'good faith check' JUST TO <"HOLD"> a car for you ... (it was not a down payment or deposit )  "

   You've got a lot of gall to talk about dishonesty.   Good faith would imply that you are not trying to pass a bogus check.   Any check that you write that has no funds in the account to back it, is by definition a phony check, written in bad faith.   You're a real piece of work.

His word was as good as his check. They lied, your check was no good. A marriage made in Heaven.

when you give a check assume it will be cashed

AUTHOR: Ray - (U.S.A.)

Do you honestly think giving someone a check they can't cash will take a vehicle off the market? A non cashable check is a worthless piece of paper. You can call it whatever you want but what you gave them was a refundable deposit. If some one asks you for a check assume they are going to cash it. If some one else came in later that day to buy the car you seriously couldn't expect them to send away a paying customer without some real commitment from you.
