All Brands Auto Dealers, Hameed, Deposit Scam. I put a $500 deposit a Jaguar Vanden Plas. Shortly after the dealer cancelled saying he decided not to sell and would return deposit. He has not returned and therefore stolen the deposit. Brampton Ontario!!. Dealer cancelled purchase for no reason, promised to return the $500 deposit paid and has not followed through. I answered an autotrader ad from the above car dealer in Brampton on July 7th. I visited and signed a deal for a Jaguar VanDenPlas giving a $500 deposit (by debit card) on July 12 and was waiting on the safety-check, some minor repairs and ownership transfer as part of the agreement. On July 16 the dealer told me he didn’t want to sell the car anymore and said that he would send a cheque to refund my deposit immediately. After one week (July 24) I called and he said it was sent registered mail and said he would send the tracking number (never received). Today is Aug 2 and I have not received the promised return of deposit. I am sure that the dealer has been lying to me and has no intention of honouring his commitments. I told him that I was still wanting to buy the car but he claims he had advertised it at too low a price and had taken it off the market. I suspect that this is all part of a scam geared to cheating unwary consumers out of their deposits for what they think is a legitimate purchase.
