Unfair Auto Dealer Practices

Tampa, Florida, Attorney Righting the Wrongs Done by Auto Dealer Fraud

There are many fraudulent and unfair business practices that auto dealers and RV dealers use to literally rob people with a pen. Unfortunately, many victims of these unfair dealer practices do not even realize that someone has taken advantage of them. For those that do, there is hope. Working with an experienced consumer fraud lawyer can help right the wrongs.

At Theresa I. Wigginton, P.A., in the Tampa/Brandon area, I use years of experience to help the victims of auto dealer fraud take action. I take cases related to many different kinds of unfair business practices, including:

  • Forging signatures on documents
  • Bait and switch
  • Failure to disclose damage to a new vehicle prior to sale.
  • Failure to disclose that a buyer is eligible for a lesser interest rate or a loan without a cosigner
  • Removal of or tampering with essential vehicle parts
  • Failure to pay off a trade-in
  • Car warranty scams
  • Yo-yo deals where the buyer is asked to sign several confusing documents, signing for terms other than those agreed upon

Most people only consider talking with an attorney after they have already become the victim of auto dealer fraud, but talking with one before you visit the dealership can help you save thousands of dollars. Since buying a vehicle can be the second largest purchase consumers make, an "ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." During a one hour consultation with me, before you go car shopping, I can advise you on what to look for, what not to do, what extras are a waste of your money, how to get the best price and rate possible, and how to avoid traps that unscrupulous dealers set: things the dealer is never going to tell you. I will take the time to talk with you about your situation and give you advice about buying a vehicle that may save you thousands of dollars and yet allow you to still get the car you want.

I am a very hands-on attorney and believe that my clients are worth the absolute best possible representation. When you have purchased a car and are concerned about the dealership's actions, I take the time to talk with you about the facts and laws involved. I can look over all the documents involved, and I can even examine the car itself, if necessary.
