*Consumer Comment: Questions
Last month when i paid them, they took TWO payments of $364 each from my bank account overdrawing my account and they refused to refund the second payment so i disputed it with my bank. After i did so, Credit Acceptance then said i owed them a payment from back in November which was completely false and i told them i have all of my bank documentation to prove it. Up until the loss of my job, my account was paid every month on time. No problems.
So amazingly somehow i have a missing payment that they are just now bringing up? Hmmm.... Sounds shady to me.
After beginning to receive my unemployment, the company then tried to dispute my unemployment claim as they had offered me a job much farther away with a substantial pay decrease. It took another two weeks to get the dispute squashed and get my benefits lined back up properly. During this time, Credit Acceptance advised me they were scheduled to disable my vehicle even though they had received my payment not even a month prior. I began to try to find help paying it until i received my check.
Two separate friends of mine, tried to call in and make the payment for me and i would just pay them when i received my check in the mail. Neither of their cards would be accepted. I received my check on Saturday but my bank was already closed, i then went and purchased a Green Dot card (another scandalous business) to try to pay my payment with that. I called the card company and they told me i would be able to do so. I then tried to call in and make the payment and the card was declined. I call the card company and they tell me that they can not do a debit purchase as this is my temporary card.
They then advise me i can take the money back off of the card. I go to the ATM to try that and also it was declined. I then spoke with Credit Acceptance who knew of this type of card and told me that i could use this at Money Gram. I made the trip to go to Money Gram and once again, declined. I called Green Dot again and they advised me that once again, i could not do that either.
I advised Green Dot that i needed the money off of this card immediately that i am running risk of losing my vehicle they basically said i am out of luck and that they can send me a refund or i had to wait for my permanent card to arrive in the mail. They said i should be able to use the card online to pay the payment. Also, declined. After speaking with Credit Acceptance for probably the 8 or 9th time yesterday they advised. The payment of $364 needed to be made by 11pm to secure the vehicle. I then had a friend who paid the payment for me last night before 11pm and low and behold i wake up this morning and my car is GONE.
I called Credit Acceptance this morning and they advised me that now i have to pay $612 dollars now. The payment i SUPPOSEDLY owe them from November and the remainder a repossession fee. These people have done nothing but lie to me and lead me every which way that was wrong. How do i go from having a perfect payment history to losing my car in a matter of TWO months??
Long story short, steer clear of this shady establishment!! I will do everything in my power to make sure that as many people know about this as possible. I have a friend who will be writing an article in the Cincinnati paper to let them know to watch out!!
