Did you sign any documents and did you provide them with your social security number and personal information. Telling the sales person doesn't make its way to the finance team.  You should never provide personal information until you are ready to complete the process.   You could go back to the dealer to inquire why they ran your credit when you clearly told them not to.  You may request that they retract the hard inquiries.   You may also have to write them certified  letters stating you did not authorize the credit pulls and request that they retract them.
