FINANCE SCAM

A couple of weeks ago I went into Continental Toyota, pre-approved, to purchase a 2006 Subaru Tribeca. At that time I walked out with a stack of signed paperwork at an acceptable rate and payment. Tonight I spoke with Roxanne in finance, who called to tell me I had to come in to re-sign my papers because Capital One wouldn't finance the gap coverage. I immediately followed up with Capital One to confirm this, they agreed, and then confirmed that I had been approved at the rate I initially agreed to. That is what is on my contract. So I went into the dealership where a man named Chris presented me with a new set of paperwork that he told me I had to sign which had a higher rate, higher sale price, and higher payment. I told him no way in hell and walked out. My "new contract" should have been identical in every way, save the deducted gap coverage. This is a WELL DOCUMENTED SCAM that dealers use, banking that you won't do your homework. I already confirmed that Capital One approved my financing before I drove in. And besides that, I was pre-approved before I ever even came in. I plan to contact the BBB and the Attorney General's office first thing in the morning. I am truly disgusted. In this economy, the day before Christmas Eve. Those people should be ashamed. Truly ashamed. This is abhorant behavior.
