The Original Ripoff Report Title:
CHANEY'S USED CARS, JOEL CHANEY, ROYCE CHANEY, LARRY CHANEY RIP OFF BEWARE CROOKED BUSINESS FRAUD DISCRIMINATION TO MINORITIES AVON PARK Florida

The Original Ripoff Report Text:
CHANEYS USED CARS CHANEYS LIED AND RIPPED ME OFF ILLEGALLY - CHANEYS USED CARS COMMITTED FRAUD CON GAME TO RIP OFF MINORITIES AND YOUTH Avon Park Florida The Original Ripoff Report Text: I BOUGHT A CAR AT CHANEYS USED CARS AND PUT 2000.00 DOWN WITH PAYMENTS DUE EVERY OtHER WEEK OF 200.00. A FEW WEEKS AFTER MY PURCHASE A FELLOW CO-WORKER WANTED TO BUY A CAR AND I RECOMMENDED CHANEY'S. SHE BOUGHT A CAR AND CHANEYS TOLD ME IF I SIGNED FOR BRINGING HER IN, I WOULD GET A CREDIT. I SIGNED. THE GIRL DID NOT MAKE HER PAYMENTS AND WHEN I TRIED TO MAKE MY PAYMENTS AFTER THAT, I WAS REFUSED TO BE ABLE TO MAKE THEM. I ASKED OF COURSE AND NO ONE WOULD TELL ME WHY THEY WERE REFUSING MY PAYMENTS. I THEN ASKED A COUPLE OF PEOPLE TO TRY AND MAKE THEM FOR ME. AFTER BEING ON THE PHONE FOR 10-15 MINUTES ON HOLD, THEY WERE TOLD THAT THEY COULD NOT TAKE THE PAYMENT. I THEN FOUND OUT FROM CHANEYS BROTHER ROYCE, WHO ALSO WORKS THERE, THAT SINCE THE GIRL DID NOT MAKE HER PAYMENTS I HAD TO HELP THEM LOCATE THE GIRL SO THEY COULD GET THEiR CAR BACK. ROYCE CHANEY ASSURED ME THAT ONCE THEY LOCATED THE CAR THAT THEY WOULD ACCEPT MY PAYMENTS. I BEGAN ASSISTING MR. CHANEY IN LOCATING THIS GIRL. WITHOUT ANY WARNING, AND WITH THE PROMISE THEY WOULD NOT REPO MY CAR-THEY DID. ROYCE CHANEY ASSURED ME AS SOON AS WE FOUND THE OTHER GIRLS CAR THEY WOULD RETURN MY CAR. I WENT UP TO CHANEYS 2 DAYS AFTER MY CAR WAS REPOED AND THEY HAD IT FOR SALE IN THE FRONT ROW. WHEN I ASKED WHAT WAS GOING ON, JOEL CHANEY SAID THAT IT WAS NOT FOR SALE AND THAT I WOULD GET MY CAR BACK AS SOON AS I HELPED THEM GET THE CAR. HE THEN TOLD ME TO GET OFF THE PROPERTY OR HE WOULD CALL THE POLICE. I DID CALL THE POLICE MYSELF AND WAS TOLD THEY GET AT THE MINIMUM OF 7 CALLS A WEEK ON CHANEY'S CROOKED DEALINGS. I TOOK OFF WORK AND CALLED EVERYONE I KNEW AND KEPT IN CONSTANT CONTACT WITH ROYCE CHANEY AND ONE NIGHT FINALLY LOCATED THE CAR. I THEN CALLED THE TOW COMPANY THAT ROYCE CHANEY SUPPLIED ME WITH, CALLED MR. CHANEY TO LET HIM KNOW I FOUND THE CAR AND SAT UNTIL THE CAR WAS PICKED UP. MR. CHANEY THEN SAID I WOULD GET MY CAR BACK BUT THAT JOEL CHANEY WAS GOING ON VACATION FOR 2 WEEKS SO I NEEDED TO GET UP THERE FIRST THING IN THE MORNING. I MADE THE 3 HOUR TRIP FROM OUT OF TOWN TO BE THERE FIRST THING IN THE MORNING TO GET MY CAR. THE GIRL I SAT DOWN WITH LOOKED UP AND TOLD ME Ii OWED 650.00 WHICH I HAD AND WAS GOING TO PAY. THE GIRL WENT INTO SPEAK TO MR. CHANEY AND SHE CAME BACK TO SAY I HAD TO COME BACK AT 4 THAT DAY. SINCE I HAD TO GET BACK TO MY HOME AND SINCE I KNEW THEY CLOSED AT 4 ON SATURDAYS, I ASKED IF I COULD JUST PAY IT AND GET MY CAR. THE GIRL WENT TO ASK AND I WAS ASKED TO STEP OUTSIDE. MR. CHANEY THEN CAME OUT AND SCREAMED AT ME AND MY MOTHER AND STEPDAD, WE HAD TO LEAVE AND GET OFF THE LOT ANDIF I WANTED MY CAR BACK, I HAD TO PAY IT ALL OFF COMPLETELY. I AM OUT MY DOWNPAYMENT, MY PAYMENTS, THE EXPENSIVE ALARM SYSTEM MY MOTHER GAVE ME FOR A PRESENT INSTALLED IN THE CAR, AND PERSONAL ITEMS THAT WERE IN MY CAR, NOT TO MENTION THE TIME, AGGREVATION AND COSTS TO ME. ALL OF THIS AFTER I WAS TOLD SO MANY TIMES THAT I WOULD GET MY CAR BACK. ON THE COPY THAT I SIGNED FOR THE GIRL IT SAYS NOTHING ABOUT THEM BEING ABLE TO REPO MY CAR IF SHE DID NOT PAY. IT DOES SAY THAT IF SHE DID NOT PAY, I WOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE VALUE OF THE CAR. I EVEN TOLD THE CHANEYS I WOULD PAY HER PAYMENTS AFTER THEY GOT THE CAR BACK IF THEY GAVE ME THAT CAR SINCE I WAS NOT GOING TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR IT. I ALWAYS MADE MY PAYMENTS ON TIME UNTIL THEY REFUSED TO ACCEPT A PAYMENT FROM MY AND THEY HAD TO RIGHT TO LEGALLY NOT ACCEPT MY PAYMENTS AND TAKE MY CAR. Victim of big ripoff West Palm Beach, Florida

I LEFT CHANEY'S AFTER BEING SCREAMED AT LIKE I WAS DOING SOMETHING WRONG AND SPOKE TO 2 DIFFERENT CAR DEALERSHIPS IN THE VACINITY. THE FIRST STATED THAT THEY ARE CROOKS AND SELL UNSUSPECTING MINORITIES OR YOUNG PEOPLE CARS WITH DOWN PAYMENTS ENOUGH TO PAY FOR THE CAR. THEY THEN LOOK FOR A WAY TO REPO THE CARS TO MAKE MORE MONEY ON THE CARS. THEY SELL MOSTLY TO MINORITIES BECAUSE THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO SINCE THEY NEED A CAR AND CANNOT GET FINANCING ELSEWHERE. THE FIRST TIME I WENT THERE TO CHANEY'S AFTER THEY REPOED MY CAR, THERE WAS A YOUNG MOTHER THERE WITH 4 SMALL CHILDREN WHO WAS CRYING BECAUSE THEY TOOK HER CAR WHEN SHE WAS 3 DAYS LATE AND THEN WANTED A HUGE AMOUNT FOR HER TO GET HER CAR BACK. THERE WAS ALSO 2 OTHER COUPLE WHO WERE TOLD TO SIT OUTSIDE AND WAIT WHEN THEY ASKED WHAT THEY NEEDED TO DO TO GET THEIR CAR BACK. THOSE COUPLE WERE HISPANIC. MOST OF THEIR CUSTOMERS ARE HISPANICS OR ME, YOUNG WITH NO ESTABLISHED CREDIT. THE OTHER CAR DEALERSHIP I WENT TO ALSO DOES A PAY HER PAY HERE AND SAID THE SAME ABOUT CHANEYS-THEY ARE CROOKED AND SCAM ARTISTS AND THAT THEY SELL MOE CARS IN HIGHLANDS COUNTY BUT THEY ALSO HAVE MORE REPOSEESIONS THAN ANYONE ELSE. IT IS A RACKET PURE AND SIMPLE. THEY ARE LOOKING FOR A WAY TO TAKE YOUR MONEY THEN TAKE YOUR CAR BACK TO RESELL IT. I HEARD ABOUT SOMEONE WHO THEY MISAPPLIED A PAYMENT THEY HAD MADE AND THEY REPOED HER CAR AND WANTED HER TO PAY THE REPO FEES AND ANOTHER HUGE DOWNPAYMENTS. THEY HAD MADE THEIR PAYMENTS-THE MISTAKE WAS CHANEY'S BUT THE CUSTOMER WAS TO BLAME?? IT IS A SCAM THE WHOLE BUSINESS IS A SCAM. THEY TAKE ADVANTAGE AND PREY ON THE POOR OR STRUGGLING PEOPLE WHO NEED A CAR AND THEN DEVIDSE WATS TO STEAL IT BACK TO RESELL IT OR COME UP WITH ANOTHER 2000-3000 TO GET THE CAR BACK. IT IS A DEFINITE RACKET AND SO MANY PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING FROM THE GREED OF THESE UNSCRUPULOUS BUSINESS MEN-THE CHANEYS-JOEL CHANEY, ROYCE CHANEY, AND LARRY CHANEY.

PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU KNWO IF THEY NEED A CAR, DO NOT GO TO CHANEY'S. THEY WILL ROB YOU BLING AND MAKE YOU SUFFER. THEY ARE VERY HARD HEARTED AND THEY SCREAM PROFANITIES AT THEIR EMPLOYEES. JOEL CALLS HIS EMPLOYEES, ESPECIALLY THE GIRLS, VERY BAD NAMES AND THEY ARE ALL AFRAID OF HIM. HE IS A HEARTLESS MONSTER WHO WILL TAKE THE FOOD OUT OF ANYONE'S MOUTH TO FEED HIMSELF AND PAY FOR HIS HOUSE ON LAKE JACKSON.
