I contacted this dealer

From their ad on

I was working with Mike Sales and later Christian Garcia to make a purchase of a vehicle. We came to an agreement on the sale by phone and email and they even ran my credit for financing. Based on them telling me that my credit was approved and they were finishing title documents I SOLD MY CAR! They led me along for 6 hours to believe that they were doing the paperwork and finishing the deal, after many calls, texts and emails, only to call to say they sold the car to someone else. Clearly they either never had the vehicle (common bait and switch tactic of a shady dealership) or they negotiated against my offer with someone else without telling me. I wasted my entire day waiting for them to finish the deal and deliver the vehicle to me the evening before Thanksgiving weekend only to be learn that their shady dealership "was so busy" they didn’t even know the car they were selling me wasn’t there! I have bought and sold many, many cars in my adult lifetime and even had a father who was a car salesman back in the day. I have never been treated with this level of discourtesy and suspect this dealer engages in illegal bait and switch tactics to innocent consumers and arrogantly think they can get away with it. Think again. I’m reporting this event to the Stay away from these unprofessional people. There are many other dealers who are happy to do an honest transaction.
