Eli Fine Cars / used car purchase
They will lie to your face.
This is a follow up to the whole “no ownership” fiasco.
So round two began with the owner contacting me after seeing my initial post on the complaints board. The owner claimed that he had done nothing wrong and did not deserve any complaints against him. I explained that I was frustrated that I was not informed of any issues pertaining to ownership and that it has been a week since I signed the bill of sale and provided my deposit. The owner offered to replace the cheque he returned to me for my deposit for a certified cheque. When I came to exchange cheques, several staff members were around as the owner and his sidekick shared stories of used car transactions gone wrong. They offered me a decent deal on the same kind of car but a lot different. I said I would think about it. They pleaded for me to remove my posted complaint and I said I would consider it. Then the owner told me that they showed the other potential buyer a copy of the bill of sale that I signed so he knew exactly what I paid for it and that he offered $800 more and they did not sell it to him, but………………………..in fact they did. I went to get a temp sticker for my car today while I continue my search for another vehicle and I decided to purchase a used vehicle package for the vin number on my bill of sale. My suspicions were confirmed. The car was registered to the dealerships name meaning they did have the ownership the whole time and on top of that, the potential buyer who offered $800 more had the car registered since nov. 20th, hence the entire time the car was already sold while I was getting lied to and worst of all, wasting my time. If I wasted their time in the same manner and backed out of a deal, I would have lost my deposit. Therefore, I believe this whole situation warrants a formal complaint to omvic pertaining to this company’s shady tactics. From a business perspective, their practices are completely unethical and immoral to say the least.in essence, they used my bill of sale to get another buyer to pay more.
