New & Used Auto Dealer Fraud

What is automotive fraud?

This is a very broad question. In general, the sale or leasing of cars without a proper disclosure of known defects or dangerous conditions with the vehicle constitutes auto fraud.

There are various types of fraud. To name a few:

  • forging your signature on a document
  • rolling back or replacing the odometer
  • falsifying figures or terms on a lease
  • lemon laundering
  • lying about the previous ownership history

One of the most common types of fraud encountered by people is being sold a used car which later turns out to have extensive presale collision damage.

Often the consumer, before purchasing the vehicle, asks the salesman if the car was ever in an accident and the salesman replies something like this: "Absolutely not! If it had been in an accident I couldn't sell you this vehicle even if I wanted to." Sometime later, when you discover to your chagrin that the car indeed had sustained major collision damage, the salesman's false claim may play back in your mind, but be assured that the salesman is never going to admit to having made such a pronouncement.

Be sure to check the VIN number of a car you plan to buy beforehand to find out for yourself that the car is not a lemon. Be aware that even with a lemon check, there is still a risk when buying a "as is" used car.
