My local chevy dealer will not give me back my deposit!

Its been over a month! This scumbag salesguy that I was dealing with had the nerve to tell me that he does not know if I can get my deposit back and that I would have to talk to his manager. So when I talk to his manager he basically said that he does not know why he said I could not get my deposit back and that as long as I have my receipt than I can get it back. He told me to fax him over the receipt so I faxed him over the receipt 2 weeks ago and I still dont have my deposit back as of today! and now the manager is not returning my emails and non of my calls.
Let me explain how this whole thing happened, beginning of this year when I was shopping for my camaro I had to do it over the internet due to my very very busy schedule at that time. I got a quote from this scum chevy dealer and I thought the deal was pretty good so after talking with the salesguy over the phone and getting a price I made a time to go over so I can do the paperwork. Once I got there this scumbag tried to put extra $1000 dollars from what he quoted me over the phone and had the nerve to lie to me in my face! To make things even worst he started leaving me alone 20-40 minutes at a time dealing with OTHER CUSTOMERS! After being there for over 4 hours and not getting anything accomplished I had to go back to my job so I told him that I had to leave and do this another day. I should of left as soon as he changed his price but I just wanted that car so bad. He asked me to leave him a deposit so he could hold the car for me so I left him a $200 dollars deposit.
After coming home that night I thought about what had happened at the dealership and decided to not give this guy a chance to make any money off me. I was blind to how I was actually getting treated by this sales guy at that time because all I was worried about was buying a camaro.
This happened 02/01/11 and I still dont have my deposit back! I didnt sign anything except for them to check the credit. I have been really patient all this time and this is really starting to piss me off really bad. I know that there are some really crooked dealers but I never dealt with a dealer that will play with your money.
I've been really nice not even putting their name out there but they are really pushing me
Our business lawyer right now is on a standby just itching to send them a nice little letter but I think I will end up paying my lawyer more than 200 at the end but my patient is really runnung out right now.
What other steps should I take? somebody give me some options please.

If you don't purchase the car, I would think you'd lose the deposit.

Find out who owns the dealership, he probably works there mon-fri in his office. Walk in and talk to him, don't deal with the trash on the sales floor.

Thats not what the dealer manager told me plus I didnt sign any vehicle contract so officially I didnt buy anything. My ex girlfriend uncle was a dealer manager for over 25 years at a 5 different dealership and he also told me that the dealers are not suppose to keep your deposit and never heard of a dealer doing this when you did not buy a car. They are just trying to play shady games with me and thats why I am so mad

Don't talk to the actual salesperson. They are all scumbags. Talk to either the manager or the owner.

I dont know who the owner is but I talk to the manager and he told me to fax him the receipt and that he will give me back my deposit. That was 2 weeks ago. Now he wont even respond back to me.

I sure don't miss mishaps with dealers, I was held hostage at a Dodge dealer in the 90's waiting for this dealer trade to come in and when it finally did it was the wrong color truck but I had already given them the down payment and the keys to my trade in. What a mess that was to get out of there with my money and my trade.....the cops got involved so you could imagin. And no, I didn't make a deal with that dealer

I am glad that it was not a trade or alot of money thats involved like you experienced. I am happy right now, I got my camaro and the dealer that I went with, sport chevy in silver spring md was just above superior! plus I got a heck of a deal at under invoice! I can leave this alone and take it as a loss since its only 200 bucks but I feel like I got robbed at a gunpoint seriously! I work and have a business dealing with customer service everyday and if I would have done something like this to one of my customers I would be out of business today. I am just pissed and am determined to get my money back

there is no way they can keep your money.you didn't even make a deal on a car.i believe you have grounds for litigation.think the salesman had a good time with your money.

I wouldn't let it go but at the same time don't let it stress you out too much or it will rob you of your time which is of more value than the money.

FACT: Dealers cannot keep your deposit if you decide not to take the car.

Take there ass to small claims court.

I just received an email from the manager stating that he received the receipt and that he ''put in'' and that it will be sent to me. The funny thing is that I sent him the receipt over 2 weeks ago and I just sent him another copy yesterday, I live about 30 miles from the dealership so Im sure it does not take 2 weeks for a 200 dollars refund to get processed and mailed. Regardless of if they just sent it or not its been over a month so one thing thats certain is that somebody is playing games. I just cant imagine how employees can just get away with something like this. I guess I will just wait another week and see if the check will really arrive. My patient is really running out with these peoples and soon I will make sure that everybody know who these peoples are. I guess I will start with every review sites, forums, than BBB, and finally lawyer and court. I dont appreciate legitimate businesses stealing or playing with customers money. I am in business too and I just couldn't even imagine doing something like this to a customer regardless of how right I think I am or how wrong a customer is. This is just a bad business practice period.
