What is Auto Fraud?
Unscrupulous dealerships may deliberately sell you a car they know has defects, sell you a wrecked car, or engage in creative and illegal financing. These acts are prohibited by California law. Harris Consumer Law can help determine if you have been the victim of auto fraud.
Consumers are often unaware that hundreds of thousands of contracts throughout the state are illegal.
It may not be too late!
If a dealer lied to you – about price, down payment, monthly payments, accident history, rental status, smog, warranty issues, or anything else – you may have a claim, and you may be able to return the vehicle you purchased, even years later, and get your money back.
“Our goal is to get the dealer or manufacturer to buy back your car and get all your money back.”
