Hi, I'm getting frustrated by this situation with a car dealership. I live in Florida by the way. 3 weeks ago I went to purchase a used car from this somewhat shady/unprofessional looking car dealership because the price seemed right. I wrote a check out for the full amount (around $6k), and we signed an agreement and everything. I was supposed to pick it up in 2 days after they're done detailing it. Well, that same day I did a carfax report on it and found out that the mileage had been rolled back. I immediately stopped payment on the check and told him I didn't want it anymore. He said fine.
3 days later the guy tried cashing my check, because I got a phone call from the bank asking if I wanted to authorize that check (the bank didn't realize that I put a stop payment on it). I called the guy once more that the mileage was rolled back and to get rid of the check. He said fine.
Well today, 3 weeks later (I have another car by this point), the guy calls me and claims the mileage is the original mileage and that I lied to him. I faxed him the carfax 3 times but he claims he still didn't receive it, and furthermore, he claims that I "wrote a bad check that didn't have the funds". I had the funds at the time, so I'm guessing this guy tried cashing my check again. He then claims that he's going to sue me because I supposedly didn't tell him I didn't want the car (which I did). Meanwhile, I never picked up the car or transferred titles, we just have that written agreement that we verbally cancelled that day (which he is lying and saying it wasnt cancelled). He's obviously very serious about pursuing this matter legally. So my question is: does this guy have ANY chance of suing me for anything? It seems ridiculous, but this guy is obviously going to lie and tell them that the agreement was still on. help! any comments are appreciated. thanks in advance
