Statement of Claim
Claimant says:
"I bought a truck this April, from car credit in Tampa, I gave $3000. Dwn & 4 payments of $400. ..I had to give next payment of $335. the 22nd of June, but
Like I was working around Palmetto & different areas where it was impossible for me to go make payment in person.
I was at 0 balance that week in my account, so I was going to deposit the $ for payment, but i thought if I did , was going to do me no good , as it would show like 3 days later maybe. So I tried calling them to let them know what was going on, no answer. By then car credit had left a message for me with a reference I'd given them...around the 25 th of June. I called them several times that day, they never answered, I tried going before 5 pm & didn't make it to office ..Next day on the 26, I tried again & I only made it to causeway , so they repoed my truck on 27th. I got a ride with a friend next day to pay them & they didn't want to accept payment... From there i started to look for legal lawyer that could help me, & legal aid gave me an appt. For 30th of June, which didn't help...Im just reaching out to you , because car credit has not only ripped me off but also ripped off a lot of other ppl..The person that gave me ride to pay car credit, has a story too, of how they've ripped her off in past & she was never late on payment..since then Ive been walking with my boys & paying rides...Its time they pay..If you can be of any help, please let me know..
