Yet ANOTHER danger if you buy a vehicle from a car dealer

  1. The dealer obviously didn't have a system in place to prevent this sort of thing. I don't think that I have ever seen a new car sale that didn't get signed off by the sales manager to prevent salesman from scamming the dealership. This makes two people that blew it and the car lot should have eaten the blunder and used it as a lesson to put safeguards in place so it never happens again. The best negotiation they could have tried would have been to explain the mistake to the customer and ask if he could pony up a $1,000 or so in exchange for credit in the service department. The dealership would have had a chance to get back some of their loss up front and spread it out over a longer period of time. Since dealer service for oil changes and tire rotations is usually the most costly in town, the actual loss to the dealer would be rather low.

    The tactic of reporting the car stolen should put whoever reported it in jail for at least six months. Now that Mr. Sawyer has an arrest on his record, he may find it difficult to get another job if a prospective employer finds out about it. It doesn't matter whether it goes to court, the report will state that he was arrested and might possibly list grand theft auto as the charge at the time of arrest. In our modern world, this arrest will follow Mr. Sawyer for the rest of his life. $2.2 million might be a valid amount of recompense.

    Lawyers are like atomic weapons: One you use them, everybody is screwed.
