Car loan Fraud:

Car loan Scams are committed by both dealers and financing agents. These are some of the scams you should be aware of:

  • Guaranteed approval: There is no such thing as a guaranteed loan. Any lender will first run a credit check before approving the loan. So, if you have a bad credit score, your car loan will not be sanctioned.
  • Upfront payment: Some dealers may ask for upfront fees. The lender lures the customer to pay a fee before the application is processed or before the funds are disbursed. This type of scam typically takes place online.
  • Packaging payments: The dealer in this case tries to gain some extra profit by charging for packaging payments. There are certain accessories or customizations that are offered as added benefits along with the car. A dealer sometimes rips money from the customer to earn extra cash.
  • Loan modification scam: A loan modification scam happens after a buyer avails a loan and struggles to make payments. Fraudsters promise to save you from foreclosure and demand money for the same.

Financing scam:

Another type of fraud related to vehicle financing is when the dealer incorrectly discloses the financial terms of the loan. This dishonest practice is designed to dupe the buyer into thinking that the loan is more favourable than it really is. The dealer misguides the buyer by not disclosing the amount financed, the charges on the amount sanctioned and the annual percentage rate. A dealer must clearly explain the terms and conditions of the loan to the buyer before finalizing a car loan. The buyer can then compare the interest rates offered by various banks and finalise the loan according to his convenience and repayment capacity.

Loan modification scams:

This is a type of scam where the scammers target people who have loans or debt problems. Car loan modification scams are schemes where the scammers target your money by making false promises of saving you from foreclosure or guiding you to pre-closure. The scammers can ask for the following:

  • Ask you to pay high fees upfront to receive services.
  • Promise to get you a loan modification.
  • Ask you to sign the title to your property.
  • Ask you to sign papers that you do not understand.
  • Say you should start making payments to someone other than your servicer or lender.
  • Ask you to stop making car loan payments altogether.
