Ameristar is some piece of work. Years ago they bought some credit card debt that my ex-girlfriend rang up in my name. They forced me to go to court and when I did all they did was talk to me out in the hallway and ask me to fill out a piece of paper. I explained to them that I was unemployed, had no assets, and didn't even know what credit card company they represented. They also were using the wrong middle initial for my name, so who knows if this debt was even mine or not.

They told me, "That's okay, you can go." So I went. What they didn't tell me is after I left they went into the courtroom and filed a judgement against me.

Then they waited years, and I mean years and as soon as I was getting on my feet a little they must have actually sent out a private detective to follow me around to find out what bank I was using. I had a lousy $500 in the bank, just enough to use it to make automatic payments for my phone, electric, public transit card and groceries.

Once again they dragged me into court, this time trying to levvy (get this) my online blog! When they found out they couldn't suck money out of my blog, they gave me a piece of paper saying it was released and told me I could go. And once again, after I left, they stuck around and field a levvy on my bank account and froze my $500. The irony is they must have spent way more than that to do all of this, and all they got was $500, every penny I had to my name. And once again they didn't even inform me what debt they even represented? Was it my Amoco card? Was it a Visa? Who knows.

Now I literally have to live off cash day to day because these vultures are still after me trying to seize every penny I make. What they are doing is making it impossible for me to ever get on my feet to ever be able to pay off their debt, if it is even legitimate debt. It makes no sense.

ameristar financial

AUTHOR: Linda - (U.S.A.)

I have been dealing with Richard Wonderlic for the last 14 years. I have never had a problem with him or Ameristar financial. He has repo'd some of my limos but that was because I couldn't pay for them. I do not deal with anyone but Richard
Wonderlic. He has always been okay with me. As long as I pay him I have no problems.

Ameristar Financial Servicing Tried To Make Me Homeless Libertyville Illinois

AUTHOR: Charles - (U.S.A.)

Ameristar is some piece of work.

Years ago they bought some small credit card debt that my ex-girlfriend rang up in my name. They tripled the figure and forced me to go to court and when I did all they did was talk to me out in the hallway and ask me to fill out a piece of paper. I explained to them that I was unemployed, had no assets, and didn't even know what credit card company they represented. They also were using the wrong middle initial for my name, so who knows if this debt was even mine or not.

They told me, "That's okay, you can go." So I went. What they didn't tell me is after I left they went into the courtroom in my absence and filed a judgement against me. Then they waited years, and I mean years, and as soon as I was getting on my feet a little they must have actually hired a private detective to follow me around to find out what bank I was using. I had a lousy $500 in the bank, just enough to use it to make automatic payments for my phone, electric, public transit card and groceries.

Once again they dragged me into court, this time trying to levvy (get this) my online blog! When they found out they couldn't suck money out of my blog, they gave me a piece of paper saying it was released and told me I was finished and I could go. And once again, after I left, they stuck around and in my absence filed a levvy on my bank account and froze my $500. The irony is they must have spent way more than that to do all of this, and all they got was $500, every penny I had to my name. It seemed personal rather than business. And once again they didn't even inform me what debt they even represented?

Now I literally have to live off cash day to day because these vultures are still after me trying to seize every penny I make. What they are doing is making it impossible for me to ever get on my feet to ever be able to pay off their debt, if it is even legitimate debt. It makes no sense.

If Ameristar ever drags you into court do not sign anything. Stick around and give your information before the judge instead, because these slime balls will tell you to leave so that they can do their illegal activity in your absence. Demand to see the original paperwork from the alleged debt, something with your signature on it.
