Customer Question

I purchased a second hand vehicle for $60,000. The young man signed me up and everything was okay, finance approved. A few weeks later Iam wondering why they have refused to take my monthly payments. They called me and said that my financial record did not qualify for the loan and the car saleman who served me has been sacked. They still have not taken any payments for this car. They said they can reclaim the vehicle. I have a excellent credit record. This is suppose to be a reputable dealer, Toyota, Cairns Qld. I do not know what to do. Is this a scam? What are my rights?
