A: You can contact the Ohio Attorney General’s Office Consumer Fraud Division which deals with fraud and deceptive trade and sales practices by businesses like automobile dealerships and report tge fraudulent behavior. You also obviously have the option of filing a civil action against the finance company and/or the dealership based on the egregious conduct.
