The “game” may be having a “rules” change because used cars are more valuable than the lease’s return price.​

So that means you the leaser (i.e., sucker) paid more for the value of the lease than calculated and you can’t recapture that at the end of the lease by selling the “pig” privately.

Seems like something akin to theft by fraud.
