If you owe creditors money, you probably are upset about it. Most of the time people find themselves in that situation because they are unable to make the payments. When creditors start calling, asking about what is owed, it can make an already difficult situation even worse. If the calls are made repeatedly you may feel as if you are trapped and cannot get away. You may not be aware that there are laws in place to prevent this harassment. If creditors break those laws you may be able to take legal action against them. A Philadelphia woman is doing that very thing.
At this point, I expect that everyone has heard a little something about what is being called DieselGate. VW is in big trouble. VW is accused of programming many of its models to provide false data during emission testing. Misrepresenting vehicle characteristics and benefits is a common kind of Dealer Fraud.
I have written in the past about dealers trying offer the best deal - the best deal for them not for you. Based on a couple of recent calls, I think it's a good time to review -- because this is one of the most common forms of dealer fraud.
The Pennsylvania Attorney General recently issued a press release providing some recommendations for avoiding flood vehicles. According to the Federal Trade Commission, recent flooding in the Midwest and Southeast could spell trouble for car buyers throughout the country.
In today’s society many people in the state of Pennsylvania rely upon motor vehicles to get from one place to another. Depending on a variety of reasons, residents could decide to either lease or buy a vehicle. Because cars are expensive it is important that when someone puts that large amount of money toward the item, they in fact receive what they are led to believe they are getting. When they don’t, it is possible that the business that sold or leased the car could be held legally responsible.
I get more and more calls about vehicles purchased on-line. Especially through eBay or Craigslist. In my experience, if a vehicle is offered for sale on eBay or Craigslist, this alone is a red-flag. This is especially true, if a dealer is offering the vehicle through either of these sites. Dealer fraud is rampant on these sites.
