When you purchase a car from a dealer or retailer, you may be vulnerable to auto dealer fraud. In order to protect yourself from fraud, and to be in a position to take action after becoming a victim to fraud, it is a good idea to make sure that you know how fraud is usually committed when it comes to auto dealing.
Fraud can happen during any part of the auto dealing process. Much of the time, fraud occurs because the customer is sold a vehicle that the buyer believes is more valuable, better functioning and in a better condition than it really is. The following are some of the most common ways that fraudsters try to trick consumers in the auto dealing industry.
Your current vehicle has died, or maybe your teenager is ready to hit the road with a new license. You want to buy a reliable vehicle without breaking the bank, so you head to a certified used car lot. After looking around for a bit, you find a vehicle that seems to be in pretty good condition. You take it for a short ride and feel satisfied with the way it rides and handles.
You make an offer and eventually head home with the title to your new, used vehicle in hand. However, after a few days, you start noticing issues. Maybe there are concerns with the way the vehicle drives. Perhaps something suddenly fails, or it just isn't working as well as it did at the dealership. You start to investigate, only to discover there are serious issues with the vehicle. In certain situations, you may have legal options for recourse.
While it can be thrilling to buy a new car, your joy can turn to pain if you find yourself stuck with a lemon.
Even if you do your research up front, there is no guarantee you won't get stuck with a vehicle that doesn't live up to expectations.
Hurricane Harvey, the storm that ravaged Houston this summer, is believed to have trashed over a million automobiles. Those vehicles were supposed to be classified as salvage, but many have been unlawfully sold to secondary markets. Many of these have shown up in California car lots.
As Houston is truck country, many of these waterlogged vehicles are pickups.
After several months of research, you purchase a car that comes with the manufacturer’s new car warranty. You got a great price from the dealer, and they ensure you that you are getting a great deal. Within the first month, you take the car back in for repairs. Each month after, you find yourself returning to the dealer to get the same problem looked at again and again.
This may be more than just frustrating. Your new car may be “a lemon”. Fortunately, California’s lemon law, the Tanner Consumer Protection Act, protects you from your faulty purchase. How does the lemon law work?
According to the Institute for College Access and Success, college graduates in California average $21,382 in student loan debt. As students graduate into a tight job market, they may find it tough to pay back student loans. Inability to pay back loans may have some people considering bankruptcy or refinancing, but are student loans eligible for discharge?
The short answer to discharging student loans through bankruptcy is usually "no," but the longer answer may be "yes" if the client and attorney take the right steps. Refinancing options are still available to student loan borrowers who are not eligible for discharge via bankruptcy or may not be interested in bankruptcy at all.
The McMillan Law Group is proud to announce yet another victory in the Student Loan Discharge Sphere. Earlier this year, MLG was able to negotiate the stipulation to discharge of over $130,000.00 in Student Loans for one of our clients. The case was in the Eastern District of California Bankruptcy Court.
The Stipulation is fantastic for the client in that they were able to avoid the extensive costs of trial. Our strategy to front end load the process such that the attorneys for the Student Loan Company could see defeat coming was clearly the way forward in this space.
The Telephone Consumer Privacy Act (47 U.S.C. 227) ("TCPA") was enacted to protect consumers from automated calls to their cellular phones. Congress recognized that consumers incur charges for calls to cell phones and that marketing companies use automatic robo-dialers to randomly choose numbers. In that regard they provide statutory damages ranging from $500.00 per call to $1,500.00 per call.
