The integrity and credibility of the Calgary, Alberta ALFA ROMEO dealership and it’s finance manager Andrew Fagan is absolutely appalling in my personal experience. I was defrauded out of $1500 by Andrew Fagan, Finance Manager and his sales person Jian Gao (groomer) in Calgary who was also part of the process used to facilitate the scam in August 2019.
They both lied, and led me on a wild goose chase to purchase a Stelvio with the intention of defrauding me out of $1500 right from the beginning.
Andrew Fagan and Jian Gao set me up to take my credit card number to secure a $1500 deposit on a vehicle they repeatedly proved they could not deliver to me.
They both lied and told me the $1500 was to secure a truck for delivery; he then repeatedly told me after my repeated follow up calls that he couldn’t get ahold of a delivery company to deliver the vehicle to Ontario.
He kept prolonging this to ensure the 10 day contract cancellation period would be reached soon so he could unethically basically pilfer my $1500 deposit.
Therefore I had cancelled before the 10 days were reached because of several red flags of deception, lies, scamming, unreliability and not showing any facts or goodwill that a truck had been set up for delivery as they did not provide me with necessary dates, truck company, tracking information for the logistics within 10 days of the contract. This was an online order which they claimed they did on a regular basis.
By the way, the SUV was sitting in their building in the basement storage.
In August 2019, AFTER securing my $1500 deposit he repeatedly told me the vehicle could not be delivered to my home and that it had to be delivered to an unknown location on an unknown date. I suggested he send the SUV to the Alfa Romeo dealer in Vaughan, Ontario which he refused to do.
He could not give me the delivery location name, date or delivery truck company and any logistics.
In fact, he repeatedly told me he was ‘playing phone tag’ with the truck delivery company. He said he couldn’t get all hold of any delivery truck companies and couldn’t provide me with any logistics after almost 10 days. Yet the sales associate and finance manager both told me (before my deposit) that they do online orders ‘all the time’ and they always deliver vehicles to ONTARIO customers
Towards the end of this Car-Con-Job, but still within the 10 days to allow a consumer to legally end a contract in Ontario, he than sent me on another wild goose chase where he provided me with a fake dummy account to ‘deposit‘ the balance of this vehicle.
At this point we went to the bank to give this dealer one last chance and hope for the best.
During the processs of creating the bank draft for balance of the SUV, the CIBC bank immediately red flagged their dummy account and advised us to halt all further payments to this dishonest Calgary
Alfa Romeo dealer who provided us with a shuttered bank account information to ‘draft and deposit‘ money for balance of this imaginary vehicle.
why would they do this you ask? Con-Job. To make $1500 from selling THIN POLLUTED Air to suckers. And succeed in making it look like I broke the contract so they can keep the heisted $1500 on my Visa.
By this point alarm bells went off that this was a common car scam facilitated by corrupt dishonest dealers like the one representing ALFA ROMEO in CALGARY by finance manager, Andrew Fagan and his accomplice Jian Gao (who was used to create a false illusion of integrity, over fake- friendliness and fake-trustworthiness with me from the beginning, ) basically to hook me in for part 2, the heisting of my credit card.
This dealer defrauded me out of $1500.
Is this who represents ALFA ROMEO in Canada?
I’ve contacted Alfa Romeo Canada and Alfa Romeo North America and Alfa Romeo Europe to inform them of this delinquent dealer. This incident occurred in August 2019. It’s now March 2020 and these blood sucking leeches are fighting Visa to keep my deposit taken on false promises. False bill of sale. A car sales -con job.
The $1500 I was defrauded of by this particular group in Calgary who represent the ALFA ROMEO brand. Which is such a shame.
ALFA ROMEO should take much better care and consideration of who represents their brand here in Canada.
It’s the year 2020. Scamming and defrauding clients is unacceptable in today’s marketplace and that’s exactly what Andrew Fagan and Jian Gao of Alfa Romeo Calgary did to me as well as the dealership who obviously won’t return my money. when
They could not provide important truck delivery information to prove they would be delivering the vehicle.
They refused to deliver the SUV to our home; they refused to deliver the vehicle to the Alfa Romeo dealership in Vaughan, Ontario. They could not provide us a location for pick up of the vehicle nor any transport information once they scammed me out of $1500.
They provided us with false banking information that CIBC immediately red flagged, whereby the bank would not issue a bank draft with false and shuttered banking information provided by this dealer.
