Unfortunately the FDCPA does not apply to business debt.

You likely have a fraud and Fair Business Practices Act claim against the dealer and were overcharged for the vehicle. I agree with the others to act soon and consult with an attorney because you have 2 years from discovery to file your case in court if needed.

It's a violation of the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act for a debt collector to disclose your debt to a third party. Feel free to call Krohn and Moss, the Consumer Law Center, at 866-875-3666, they have Florida attorneys that cal help.
You have likely been a victim of fraud but are fortunately protected in Georgia under the Fair Business Practices Act. However, your next steps are critical as to whether you can recover for your fraud claim. You should discuss returning the vehicle with a consumer attorney who can advise you on the pros and cons of returning the vehicle to the dealer and rescinding the contract. I've battled this issue before the court of appeals. Feel free to contact me at 678-395-7795 if you need help.
If the seller is a car dealership, you are protected by the Georgia Fair Business Practices Act and can demand rescission of the agreement. A material misrepresentation (including an erroneous odometer reading) made pre-sale is a violation. The Georgia Odometer Act also provides protection.
