Auto Financing Scams

Learn how to protect yourself from scams within the automotive financing industry. Know the correct precautions to take and what can be done about them.

The best way to avoid being scammed when you are financing your automobile is to know about the scams and misleading tactics some dealers and financers will take to make more profit, and knowing how to prevent them. It's your money and you owe it to yourself to know how you're spending it, and the dealer owes you the same. Car dealers know what they are doing, and many of them are dangerous to you and your money. "It is said that 80% of car buyers buy a car different than what they came in to buy. Such as different color, model etc.." as www.carbuyinghowto.com reported in their August, 2020 article "Car Buying Statistics- You Might Be Surprised". There is obviously a very persuasive force leading this 80% of people away from what they wanted and toward what they left with. Dealers know how to play the game, and you might find this game as any, hard to play when you don't know how. Being prepared, knowing what to look for, and knowing what to say and when are the most important concepts of getting the best deal and not being scammed. Most people don't know this simply because no one ever told them, probably because most people only go through a few car purchases in their life. It is not impossible for a person to see through scams on their own, and not all dealers and financers are trying to scam you, but the fact of the matter is that profit is going to be number one on their list.

One great way to make sure you are prepared is to know your credit score before you ever go to the dealer. Some dealers have been known to lie to people about their credit score, telling them it is so low that they only qualify for a higher interest rate on their financing. Many people don't know any better but believe the dealer not expecting them to be dishonest about it, and it can cost them hundreds a month on their payments and thousands in the long run! Never forget that a car dealer is a salesman, working on commission. Their goal is to put you in that car and have it off the lot by the end of the day. They will play on your emotions when they see the opportunity. They know how to gain your trust, and they know how to get the information they want. This is why most people don't question the dealer when they tell them they have a bad credit score and other things that may not be true. Keep in mind, the dealer wants you to buy a vehicle much more than you do, and though they are helping you make it happen, they are in it for their own gain, and they will do what they see fit to make it happen.

Know what you want and need, and don't accept unnecessary add-ons the dealer may try to offer you or sneak in. This may be done in a scamming method, or right in front of you with your approval, but without realizing just what's happening. A popular add-on today is VIN etching. The dealer offers to etch your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) onto the car window for added security and protection if your vehicle were stolen or parted. Most people don't know that the number should already be etched in several other places on the vehicle, a kit to do this yourself is only about $20 at your local hardware or automotive store, and the service is commonly done by local police offices free of charge. The dealer however, often charges several hundred to over one-thousand dollars for the service. A lot of people are convinced that the etching will be worth whatever the dealership charges, when they don't really know how much is going to be charged. There are several other unnecessary add-ons that car dealerships have created to make more profit. Some offer additional life insurance when selling a vehicle, though it usually turns out to be a waste of money. The dealer may use the same emotional tactics to convince the buyer that this is needed, the same way some life insurance agents play on your fears to convince you that their service is necessary exactly as they put it, but you should keep in mind again, that they are a salesman working on commission and are in it for their own gain. Most any dealer will offer extended warranties, and some will go so far as to tell a buyer that they have to take it to be qualified for the financing rate they agree on. If something like this happens and you're not sure if something is legitimately needed or not, ask for it in writing. The dealer almost always backs down with their claims at that point, because they don't want to put anything in writing that is not true.

In some cases, the charges are disguised in with the normal payments, and the extra services and fees are meant to look like they are included at no charge, but really make up the extra amount owed from what the dealer would normally charge. For example, you may agree to make payments of $250 a month on vehicle financing, and the dealer tells you this includes an extended warranty, VIN etching, and leather interior. This makes it seem as if these are bonuses you are being given, and you assume it is not reflecting the price, when the dealer could cut out those features you don't need and save you $25 each payment. These are called "loaded payments", and the dealer gets extra commission for selling the ad-ons and increasing the price.

With the "Yo-yo Financing" scam mentioned before, the best way to prevent the dealer from being able to make any changes in your agreement or financing is to let the car sit on the lot for at least 24 hours. www.carbuyinghowto.com also reports in their article, "Over 95% of car buyers take their new car home on their first visit..." This is called spot delivery, and it allows the buyer to take the car before the sale is finalized by the dealer, and it allows the dealer to do as they please as long as they get your approval on it, however they go about obtaining that. By leaving the car in the dealer's possession until the sale is complete, you don't put yourself liable for whatever changes you are presented with because you have not already taken the vehicle from the dealership, and you retain the option of refusing to purchase under terms you did not agree on. The vast majority of people take the instant gratification of having their new vehicle as soon as they can have it though, and sometimes end up paying a lot more because of it. In almost any situation dealing with financing, it's best to keep yourself as free of commitments as you can for as long as you can, until everything you agree on and can afford is put into writing and finalized by both you and the dealer and financer. Another useful action you can take is having your financing set up outside of the dealership before you go.

We are not on our own trying to be protected from auto financing scams. There are certain laws and regulations that are in place to protect us. However, some dealers go against these laws and regulations when they think they can get away with it. One law in specific states that a dealership cannot sell a vehicle for more than the advertised price, even if the customer is unaware of it. Most dealers try to avoid this but sell at a price closest to that advertised, but occasionally a dealer will add on additional services or luxuries and the price becomes higher than that advertised. This breaks the law, but some customers have no idea, and so nothing is said, and no one is penalized. Another law states that all obligations of both parties must be contained in one single document. Similar to the law mentioned before, some dealers do not obey this and use additional documents and provisions that you agree to, to make a greater profit. A 'deferred down payment' are sometimes handled in this way, in which an external legal document from that of the contract is used to determine when the dealership will deposit checks the customer has written in specific amounts for specific dates so the down payment can be paid off when it cannot be afforded at the time of purchase. This allows the dealer to get you into a car and started on your payments even though you may not be able to afford it. This is against the law but again, most people don't know any better so nothing is said and no one is penalized.

For many years, dealers would use a customer's language against them when creating a contract for financing and purchase. However, Civil Code §1632 now requires that a dealer must provide a Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Tagalog or Korean translation if the lease/purchase of a vehicle was primarily discussed in any of the languages. Before this came to act, many customers were taken advantage of when signing a contract in English that they did not, or could hardly understand. Now that this is serving as protection, the customer is able to rescind from their contract if the translation is not provided before the signing of the contract in Enlish.

Some dealers use a "lower monthly payments" scheme to make more money from the financing in the end. This usually comes into play at the same time a dealer may try the "Yo-yo financing" scam, before the documents are finalized, but even if the vehicle is kept on the lot. The dealer calls the customer back and says he/she was able to find a better financing deal with a lower rate and lower monthly payments. The lower rate means less is added on and the total expense of the financing is less in the end, while the lower monthly payments keep more money in the customer's pocket. The dealer advertises the great new deal in this manner but fails to tell the customer what they may not realize, that the lower monthly payments are dragging the owed amount out further and costing more even with the lower rate. The customer expects to save money but pays more in the end.

It's your money and you owe it to yourself to know how you're spending it, and the dealer owes you the same. Being prepared, knowing what to look for, and knowing what to say and when are the most important concepts of getting the best deal and not being scammed. The best way to avoid being scammed when you are financing your automobile is to know about the scams and misleading tactics some dealers and financers will take to make more profit, and knowing how to prevent them. Every now and then, we're all taken on a ride we never expected, and when the time comes, hopefully we can be more prepared to divert the situation from happening, or at least know how to deal with it once it is. If you are ever a victim of a scam in the automotive financing industry, you should report the dealership to the Better Business Bureau as a dishonest dealership, and if necessary, report the dealership to your state's Attorney General office.
