How the scam works:
You are hesitant about the price of a car you like in a dealership. The friendly dealer comes to you and says, "You know what? If you can bring me written proof of a lower price elsewhere in town, I will match the best offer you get. I promise".
What you don't know is that the other dealerships aren't going to play along with this. You won't be able to get a lower price in writing from an agent.
This is just a shameless trick pulled by some dealers to make you stay in the dealership and make you believe that you won't get a better deal anywhere else.
How to avoid:
Call the bluff. Say no thanks; you're just not interested in buying from them. They will soon lower the price.
