GMP Motors Complaint - GMP Motors in Escondido, California scammed a poor immigrant

Review by JaneMarvel on 2009-11-21
ESCONDIDO, CALIFORNIA -- GMP Motors in Escondido, California sold a nearly non-functional pick-up truck to a poor Hispanic immigrant for $6000 - a life's savings for her. When the buyer brought the vehicle back because the engine was burning up on the freeway, GMP took the truck back and KEPT the woman's money too. She asked for only half the money back because she had driven the truck for a few days, but GMP refused to give her a single penny back and they also refused to give her the truck back once they had taken it from her. It was clear theft and exploitation of her immigrant status. GMP Motors knew the immigrant would be too afraid to make waves by going to the police. I wonder how many other scared immigrants GMP Motors is running this scam on every day?

So what is it in this post that I have a hard time believing? Oh the whole thing. It doesn't matter if she is a "poor Hispanic immigrant" if this happened (and I don't believe it did) call the police. Even if she is illegal the police will not ask that of her.

Doesn't CA have general warranty laws on used cars bought from dealerships? Or did she sign an 'as is " document? Either way, something isn't right here. Why would they take the truck back but not give any money back?

I cam shenanigans.

this sounds more like someone heard a rumor and passed it on
and then the rumor eventually ended up here
