There`s nothing wrong with Spot being delivered as long as the merchant tells you what`s going on in advance. If you know this information, can you make a decision by comfortably taking the vehicle home or going to another dealership to continue shopping? In more than 20 years in the automotive industry, I have never seen a (unauthorized) customer win a lawsuit or keep a vehicle because of a cash delivery. The best way to avoid cash fraud is to use only the financing of a car dealership as a last resort. Find out what you qualify for before you go to a dealer by arranging your financing. You know in advance how much money you can borrow and at what interest rate you qualify. First, I would like to stress that not all cash deliveries should be considered fraud and that not all traders should be considered misleading. Delivering a vehicle to a customer is a daily process at car dealerships across the country. Although the client has not been officially approved for financing, he must make a judgment to recognize the client and later reorganize the agreement with the bank. The customer will make it look like he has been approved for the loan, that he can sign all the papers and bring the vehicle home. Cash delivery is made when a car dealership does not officially authorize a customer for a car loan. The dealer will have the customer sign all the papers and accept the delivery of the car. As a result, the customer believes that his loan has been approved and that the auto-deal is concluded.
If you have just bought your car and the dealer called you a few days later to tell you that your financing has failed, or if you need an additional $2000 to keep the car. You could be the subject of the delivery spot fraud. If the dealer calls you and harasses you over and over again to bring the car back, you still have a few options. In 1998, the New Automobile Commission came up with rules that say that if you want to deliver, here are the conditions you need to use, and here`s what should be in your agreement, Johnson said. Cash delivery probably has been around for 20 or 30 years, but they simply did not have defined terms between the merchant and the consumer. … “Cash delivery” is a technique used by car dealers to get you to take charge of the delivery of a vehicle immediately after you have agreed to a car contract. But be warned: just because you park money and drive out of the dealership with a new vehicle doesn`t mean you can keep driving. A cash delivery becomes a scam if the dealer tells you that you are authorized for a car loan at a set interest rate and term. However, he knows absolutely that there is NOT a WAY that you will qualify for the loan in written form. The dealer will go so far as to sign all the papers and let you take the vehicle with you to withdraw from the market. After signing the contract and all the paperwork for the car of your purchase, the dealer will leave the delivery of the car and drive it home totally unaware you have not officially approved under the terms of the car loan that you have agreed and signed.
