Price Match Scam: How It Works
(with video below) You are hesitant about the price of a car you like in a dealership. The friendly dealer comes to you and says, “You know what? If you can bring me written proof of a lower price elsewhere in town, I will match the best offer you get. I promise”.
What you don’t know is that the other dealerships aren’t going to play along with this. You won’t be able to get a lower price in writing from an agent.
This is just a shameless trick pulled by some dealers to make you stay in the dealership and make you believe that you won’t get a better deal anywhere else.

Yohana, the first thing I would do is contact the Better Business Bureau, and see if they have had complaints about this dealer before. Then the next thing I would do if your car isn’t ready the next time they have promised you, is demand a refund of both the trade-in price they promised you for your old car, and the deposit you made. If they refuse, contact a lawyer. First consultations at most law firms are free.
I bought a new car from a dalherseip 12 days ago. I traded in my old car (for 3800) and gave them a down payment of 2300. I was told that the car would arrive within the next two days. I have been told that my car would be ready two different times only to then be told that it isn’t here yet. I have a loaner car from the dealer but am begining to get worried about if they are going to deliver the car. Does this sound like a scam? What recourse do I have and how long do they have to deliver my car?
