DEALER USED AUTO / FRAUD

1 139-43 QUEENS BLVD JAMICA NY 11435, QUEENS, NJ, United States Review updated:
Contact information:
Phone: NOT PROVIDED

HE ADVERTISED ON CRAIGSLIST'S PRIVATE OWNER SECTION. I HAVE A COPY. THE PERSON DID NOT PROVIDE ME HIS ADDERESS BUT SAID THAT HE WILL BRING THE AUTO TO MY RESIDENCE. AFTER SOME TIME ON APRIL 7, HE CAME AT 10.30 P.M WITH THE CAR.

THE DEAL WAS DONE AS ADVERTISED PRICE $6000 (CASH). HE SAID " I AM CLOSING MY AUTO BUSINESS AND LOT OF CUSTOMERS WANTED THIS PT CRUISER (REGULAR) MORE THAN THIS PRICE ADVERTISED. THEIR MESSAGES ARE TAPED ON THE MACHINE AS WELL.

IN SHORT, I PAID HIM AND HE HANDED ME OVER THE VEHICLE. HE PUT 03/29/09 AS THE SALES DATE INSTEAD OF 04/07/09. THERE WAS CHECKED ENGINE SIGN ON BUT HE SAID THAT IS COVERED BY THE CHRYSLER COMPANY'S DEALER WARRANTY.

WE WENT TO DEALER, THEY CHECKED AND TOLD ME THAT THIS IS AN ACCIDENTED CAR. THE PARTS HAVE BEEN REPLACED. AUTO HAS A BAD ACCIDENT FROM THE FRONT AND BACK. THE MUFFLER, BATTERY AND THE BACK LIGHT IS BAD AS WELL.

I HAVE BEEN LEAVING THE MESSAGES TO HIM BUT NO ANSWER YET.
PLEASE GUIDE ME WHAT SHOULD I DO? THANKS
I LIVE IN NJ. SYED A

    You should always check the history of the vehicle first, and take the vehicle for a test drive. Also, before buying a used car, ask around for someone reputable since most of these used car dealers are a bunch of crooks. Ask around for not only who's reputable, but for who to stay away from. Poeple who have dealt with certain dealerships before will give you an opinion about whatever place they dealt with.

    You probley could take him to small claims court.. Make him give you the money back.Take all the proof with you. I am sure you have insurance and when the vin number is put in the system they should be able to bring up the wrecks and all and print them out. Take your papaer work with you because by law they have to get you to sign a form if the vehical has been in a wreck. Good Luck to you
