Bowling Green, OH asked in Consumer Law for Ohio

Q: Is it fraud if dealership lies about vehicle make on temporary tag registration?

The vehicle i just got has many problems with it, that showed as soon as i drove off the lot, plus has many recalls i was unaware of beforehand. Not sure what to do at this point its a Saturn and the vehicle registration says Chevrolet. They will not return my calls. I just got it friday.

While i was in there, a man was saying how his vin did not match with his vehicle! i know a red flag right, i was just really in need of a car. So are they doing fraud with registration i don't want to get in trouble if i get pulled over.
