I purchased a truck and traded in a car I owned outright. They agreed to pay me $36,000 for my car and I wanted to take $10,000 of that and use it as down payment and the remaining $26,000 back in cash to me. A few days after I got the truck home I discovered they had mistaken left a "dealers plate" under the rear seats and called them to let them know. They didn't even notice it was missing at the time, but thanked me for letting them know and asked I send it back. I did send it back out of courtesy and at my own expense, they didn't even offer me to use their fedex account or anything.
So a few weeks pass by and I hear nothing from them and still haven't got my check for $26,000 they said would be issued and sent to me. So I called and the person I spoke to didn't know anything about it and took my info down to have someone call me back. Tyler, who claimed to be the owner, called me back stating that they didn't get their plate back and thus were not going to be issuing me the $26,000 they owe me (as stated on our contract) until I get them the plate back. They have not contacted me AT ALL during the past several weeks about their plate...I had forgot about it even. It was only once I called and wanted my money they turned this missing dealer plate into an issue at all. I don't have the plate or a receipt for the shipping from several weeks ago, maybe if they had called during the 20 days since I bought the car we could have found it!
