I went to purchase a vehicle from Drive Time on Decatur in Las Vegas. I was short from the original down payment they told me i needed so while on the test drive the salesman took me to some "loan" company.
In essence, i didnt have any checks with me but it ended up being a check loan. Now, I got diagnosed with lung cancer and had to go to phoenix for two months. My son had the payments but they wouldnt take them because he was a "minor". When I got back, i called and was told that I could not make up the payments that they would arrange a voluntary repo.
They would not under any circumstances take my payments late. Even with proof of the medical issues and the fact i was in arizona. So, my ex ended up notifying them when I was back and took the kids to him for fathers day, and they came and got the car. A company called Reliable Recovery had called the day before stating that a warrant was being issued for me and i was in serious trouble because of this situation and i lied on my application and everything.
I didnt lie, my friends and family just didnt think i needed to be harassed by some *** who in fact lies on the phone for a living. Once reliable got the car, they are now charging 75.00 to get my belongings out of it. cash only.
on top of that, i have this loan company which was actually a check cashing company calling about the double amount than what i borrowed, which is why i thought the price of the car went up 500.00 when i signed....i would stay very, very far away from them. they go through a lot of cars because they pick them up as fast as they sell them and they never once sent me a late notice, or one phone call to work or anything until they decided they wanted it back.
