Ever wonder what happens when you buy a warranty or service contract from a car dealer? Unfortunately, some dealers just pocket the money. Then if your car needs repairs, you are left with no coverage. Some dealers have faced criminal penalties for engaging in this scam, but often it goes undetected.
