Girard Ford Complaint - Scam - Prize Winner

Review by donald.e.wilcox87 on 2011-12-04
NORWICH, CONNECTICUT -- This week I received a Prize Award for Girard Ford. If your number matched - you won 1 of 4 prizes. You had to visit in person to claim your prize. The prizes illustrated was a 2005 Ford Truck or $ 15,000 down to $75.00.

As this was a scam to sell you a vehicle. I walked away with a $5 gift card from Walmart.

Don't waste your time.

Still, at least you got a $5 Walmart gift card out of it...enough to buy you a "dump bin" DVD. I don't have any faith in car dealers that play games in order to lure customers in. Customers pay for these games many times over in the form of higher car prices, higher finance rates, and high dealer repair shop costs.

But you did win something. What's the scam?

If the lowest stated price was $75then you might have a valid compliant, but if it was set up so that there was only one of the "big" prizes to be had and if you didn't get one of those you got the $5 gift card as consolation prize, then I don't see a scam here.
