Complaint: I bought a new car from on Sept 24,2014 they bought my car and resold. Sept 29 I signed the cancelation of extended warranty and gap insurance, **** the finance manager promised to have the checked mailed directly to me since car is paid off. Brown and Brown Manager **** said I will have the money in 4 to 6 weeks. After 4 weeks I called Brown and Brown and left message for ******* she never returns calls. After 6 weeks I call Brown and Brown. again and ******* say she got the money from insurance company and sent it to lean holder . I remind her there is no lean holder and she says not her problem not her job and I should have told her . I remind her of voice mails I left and she disconnects. I then call **** and he will check into it. I have asked them 4 times for copies of all paperwork regarding the insurance and they will not proved me with copies of anything . He says she sent the money to lean holder and they can't return for 3 weeks because they are holding check and to call if I don't get by Nov 21. Nov 21 I call Nick and he blames lein holder so I talk to **** boss ****. ***** promises to look into it and if their check didn't clear he will stop and issue money to me. Spoke with***** last night and now with the holiday he can't do anything and big sale on Friday so he will look into it next week. I call *** (lein holder). And they confine they sent the money back to Brown and Brown early November. Brown and Brown has the worst customer service of any dealership I have ever met. They have lied and cheated me and continue to Not do their job. Brown and Brown is the most unprofessional Auto deal ship!

Desired Settlement: I am only seeking my money returned. I paid the warranty money and gap money up front. Brown and Brown refused to left the insurance company refund to me inserting them self into the situation. No one at Brown and Brown seems to know wha t they are doing. And of them at Brown and Brown have acknowledged that the $980 belong to me. Brown and Brown is acting as though there can do whatever they want with out repercussions. I just want Brown and Brown to give me my money that they are holding. My car has been paid off for months and ******* from Brown and Brown acknowledges she actually received the refund and sent it to the wrong company. It have been 90 days, when I first spoke with the general manager **** from Brown and Brown and explained the problem he said' oh yes, I've heard that happens here a lot'. Really Brown and Brown, you knew you have a problem with customer service and you don't correct it?
