Consumer Auto Fraud 101:
Given the universal need for transportation, almost all people end up purchasing cars at several times in their lives. However, most people’s lack of knowledge about cars makes them prime targets for several types of predatory practices. For low-income individual victims, the effects of a bad car deal can create a spiral of devastating economic issues.
This training will cover the most common of these practices and related issues, including:
“As-is” sales; fraud; the Virginia Consumer Protection Act; “Yo-yo” sales; Odometer Act violations; selling prior wrecks without disclosure; selling used cars as new cars; “bait and switch” practices; disclosure of credit terms, notices about credit decisions, and other credit issues; insurance issues; price of the car; purchase order requirement; negligent repair; and warranties, service contracts, and UCC issues.
