I am sorry to read about your difficulties.

I am bit confused. I thought you said that the Police told them that they could not force you to turn over the car. Are you saying now that you wound up leaving the car there despite the Police saying that they could not force you to leave the car there?

Kindly clarify.

Thank you for your cooperation.

You need to file complaint against the dealership with your Attorney General's Office, Consumer Protection Division. If your issue remains unresolved, you may consider filing a Small Claim at your local Courthouse to force the dealership to return your money to you. You can obtain complaint forms at the Courthouse in the Clerk's office. You may also obtain the forms online if the Court makes forms available online.

You may also consider retaining the services of a local consumer Attorney to assist you with the case. Most consumer Attorneys would take a case on contingent fee basis. This means that the Attorneys may not charge upfront for their fees and would only get paid if they win the cases for the consumers. Even then most Courts award Attorney fees to prevailing consumers. So, you may not have to pay out of pocket to obtain a consumer Attorney to assist you with the case.

You can use the following sites to find local consumer Attorneys:

Consumeradvocates.org

Lawyers.com

Justia.com

Findlaw.com

Goodluck with your case,

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
