Customer Question

Good Morning,
I'm Samuel Kelley residing in Montgomery Alabama. On last week my wife went to purchase a car from one of the local car dealerships. she called me to get my SS#. I immediately ask what would they need with my SS#, she stated they told her since I was the main person on the rental lease I would have to be the primary person to sign for the car as it relates to her getting her tag etc. Upon my return to the city I met with the Finance Manger to review the documents, he requested for me to sign several pieces of paer which I did not. I then questioned him on who allowed him to pull my credit. He stated "Not Me. He then walked over to the salesman that sold my wife her car. The salesman stated Your wife, told us to pull it. I then stated this is my wife she is not me, no one gave any of you the approval to pull my credit. The salesman then stated I messed up and pulled it sir. Now, my question is should I move forward with an attorney, police report etc on the car dealership and or should I go directly after the salesman that admitted his screw up?. What would I be looking to get out of the law suit? any finance, damages etc?. Please advise

You can pursue dealer for unfair and improper trade practices. Police normally won't get involved in this situation.You have a few options. Let me outline them. You can pursue a complaint in civil court. You may sue for losses suffered plus costs and interest. You can also file a complaint with the attorney general office. You can threaten these options before pursuing and use for leverage. local counsel can also get involved!I wish you the best.
