I am not sure what the action would be.  If you did not pay the lease, and it was found to be a fraud, there is really no further claim.  You are not going to prove the dealer did it intentionally to you.

Consumer Fraud
Are you the victim of consumer fraud? Has a business treated you unfairly or acted in a deceptive manner? Have you lost money or property to a scam artist? Has your insurance company denied a legitimate claim? A consumer fraud law firm can help you take legal action against the company, which may including filing an individual or class action lawsuit against the business. Your lawyer can also notify the appropriate attorney general or state's attorney--which often act as consumer watchdogs--and urge the government to launch a criminal investigation if appropriate.
