Websites that lie about paying cash & hidden fees
For the record: This website, carswanted.com.au, was Australia’s first and longest established online car buying entity. All similar ones are copies or morphed from this original concept however only our competitors can take ownership of lying about the ability to make literal cash payments and concealing unfair charges. We encourage all potential sellers who are considering using our kind of service, to read the payment process very careful and if you can’t find it on their website, call and request information.
The money lie: Prompted by sellers who claimed they were mislead by a number of similar businesses, we researched similar entities offering to pay instant cash. Turns out roughly 90% of those advertising to pay cash on the spot are simply lying on google and in their websites or to be generous, using a little poetic licence, or a lot. So if you are actually wanting physical cash at the point of sale without having the proceeds taxed by admin or cancellation fees, then the only thing which pays is to call ahead and grill them!
The hidden fees: Here are three bizarre examples. Two are from some of the wealthiest dealerships in the country, In-fact one of is global. The first little gem, hidden in their terms and conditions, is an illusional sliding scale admin fee for every car purchased. It goes something like this, a $66 admin fee is applied to cars valued from $0 to $499 and this increases incrementally to a maximum of $250 for vehicle $80,000 and up.
The second from the same dealer, is a charge $44 to have your bank transfer sped up from 3 days to 24hours. So an insane example would be someone who has a car valued at $100 and wants payment in 24 hours. Well, it would make no difference how soon the payment would arrive because it never will if you consider the charges extinguish the lot. And of course, my example is ridiculous but look at it this way, the dealer makes a profit when he sells the vehicle but this way he makes profit the moment he buys it, its just greedy!
And lastly we have a dealer who charges $500 in the event you change your mind. In other words, they have you sign a buying contract but down the very bottom in tiny 6 point letters there is a clause that states if you wish to rescind the agreement, you agree to pay them a $500 cancellation fee. And don’t think you can just ignore them because they can’t or won’t enforce it. Just bellow the cancellation clause is another which entitles them to register a security interest with the PPSR and this mean you can’t sell it until the interest is removed. It not as if the dealer has incurred any real costs, its simply a rip-off.
And how do we know these things? Well because we have bought cars from people unlucky enough to have paid the $500 cancellation fee and they willingly provided a copy of the actual agreements. And as for the dealer with the insane fees, its on the net and if you want the address, just ask me.
