AmeriCredit Financial Services is a crooked business and charges very high interest for those with no credit or bad credit.

I had an auto loan through AmeriCredit for a 1996 Nissan Sentra GXE that I bought used at a Nissan dealership in NY. I was given a high interest rate to pay which was 22.9%.

I had bad credit with a previous bankruptcy but I needed a car. I was making my payments to AmeriCredit with a slow payment history but I always made good on them within time.

In July of 2003, I received a call from a woman in the Canada office. She wanted to "secure" payment on the past due amounts but asked me if I wanted to just hand over the car. I said I needed the car and promised the payment of over $500 that day via Western Union. I called her after I made the payment with the control number as she requested. I was "Looking good now" as I only owed them the deferment fee of $110 that I was told could be paid in a week. TWO DAYS later the car was repossessed.

The repo man where I picked up my plates said that AmeriCredit is "the most crooked of all of the financing companies." I wish I could warn any future consumers of this company. They told me I could NOT refinance my loan which I later found out was a blatant LIE!

I now have a judgement against me in the amount of greater than $5,000. They KINDLY knocked down $3,000 off of the amount in default.

They make mutually agreeable payment arrangements only to come and take your car AFTER they get more money from you!
