Statement of Claim
Claimant says:
"I used Dakota Finantial to finance a truck that I bought from Ryder for $45,500, so maybe they are both responsible. I put $18,224 deposit, which is 40%, Dakota Financial payed $27,276. My payments were $1,248.00 per month.  Within the first week, the truck was not working. Dakota Financial would not help me at all. I asked them many times. They said that were the owner, but at the same time, It was my problem. The after 6 months,and $20,000 of work that the truck caught on fire because it was a lemon. My insurance paid Dakota Financial $39,900 for the fire. THANK GOD NOBODY WAS HURT. I received nothing. Dakota Financial owes me my deposit back and $20,000 for repairs plus my deposit $18,224. and my insurance for the month that it was being repaired. $3,700. The total is $41,924"

Sal Chicago (Comment):
"Given the fact that they said they were the owner yet claimed no responsibility is issue number one. The next issue is whether there was a warranty. Another issue is was the use of the truck for ordinary use.

I believe I can help resolve this issue effectively and efficiently."
