Belle Glade Chev. Cad. / Deceptive Sales Practices
DON'T BUY FROM THIS DEALERSHIP!!!
On 03/28/2012, I entered into an agreement ( or claim ) to purchase a Black 2006 Mercedes SL500 vin#WDBSK75F109996, from Plattners Belle Glade Chev. Cad. Upon giving my verbal agreement to purchase the above said car, I instructed the sales person Derek Bishop to fed ex me the paperwork from his dealership in Belle Glade, Fla. to my residence in Atlanta, GA. Based on my discussion with Derek, the FedEx package was sent on Thursday, March 29, 2012.
At approximately 3:29pm Friday, April 6, 2012, I received a call from my sales person Derek Bishop informing me that the car had been sold to a gentleman from New York, who paid all cash, full price for the vehicle.
I questioned why the car was sold, when we had agreed to a price of $31, 998.00 and he had both my partial down payment and signed paperwork confirming the sale of the vehicle. Derek stated that someone else sold the car and he had no further knowledge of the sale. I immediately contacted the GM of Plattner’s Belle Glade Chev. Cad. (Jimmy Tucker) and questioned him about the sale. Jimmy stated at first he was not aware of the situation, then he later stated that he was aware of my deal and he was aware of the other deal where the car was sold. He offered to resale the car to me, if I would come up to the price the other person offered. I refused the deal and informed him I needed an investigation and to call me back.
