Attorneys Fighting Car Dealer Fraud in Oakland County and Beyond

When you need to buy a car, you need to be extremely careful about what you pay for the vehicle and how you finance it. The auto finance industry is rife with abuse, and you can easily end up owing far more than you expected or were told.

If you have been the victim of an auto loan scam, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your rights, someone who knows the types of abuse that auto lenders and dealers engage in and who has helped others get out from under unfair or oppressive finance agreements.

At Lyngklip & Associates Consumer Law Center, PLC, we have almost a quarter century of combined legal experience in consumer law, with a focus on the needs of individuals who have been victims of consumer abuse, including finance and credit scams.

Our Automobile Finance Fraud Practice

Auto finance fraud can take a variety of forms, including:

  • Charges for add-ons you either did not request or did not receive, such as credit life protection, window etching, extended warranties or anti-theft protection
  • Fake or disappearing down payments
  • Fake trade-ins
  • A different annual percentage rate on the contract than was quoted to you
  • Charges for a car you turned in on lease or trade

When car dealers and lenders hide behind a wall of paper and lawyers, we will passionately fight to get your money back and get you compensation for the fraud.

Last week, U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin certified a nationwide class action brought by Lyngklip & Associates, along with three other law firms. The class consists of consumers for whom Quicken Loans, Inc. failed to timely provide required notices under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Lyngklip & Associates alleged that the FCRA required Quicken to provide a copy of the credit scores used by Quicken Loans along with a notice of the consumers’ rights, and required that Quicken do so “as soon as reasonably practicable.” The class complaint alleged that Quicken Loans improperly delayed sending these notices.

The certification of the matter as a class is the first step towards resolving the matter for more than 300,000 potential Quicken Loans customers. The ruling does not resolve merits of the claims, but does clear the way for a class-wide adjudication. Lyngklip & Associates has requested that the Court award statutory, actual, and punitive damages for each of the class members.
