In 2003, shortly after I had completed my BA at Midway College. A young man hit my car and I was injured. I was given time off from work. I later return to work and was taking step to pay up my bills. I join a debt help agency. In the meantime, I was back to driving a school bus painfully. I got off from work to signs posted on our home, the lock removed ,pictures taken,my daughter crying holding my grandson,my husband angry. I started to cry why are they doing this. Household Finance order the repossession of our home because I owed them money. We did not have a mortgage with them and they did not have a mortgage license in Louisville.
I think that the city of Louisville allowed this company to get away with this crime because we are a poor black family. I know of several elderly black women that this same company has done this too and keep the individuals homes. The Mayor of Louisville recently commented about poor Blacks in Lousiville he is dirty. It is because of dirty business organizations like Household Finance and cities that do not protect the interest of their citizens and workers. It is not because we are Black that we do not have the money.
Anyway, the debthelp company also did not pay the bills that I signed up and paid them to pay. I have had a few mini stokes and Iam now a angry bundle of nerves because I had been followed by their attorney's,I have problems sleeping, my husband had a heart attack,and my daughter was terrified to stay at home alone. I hope that Washington checks them out before they give them anymore taxpayers money. I am still terrified that while Iam sleeping they will come again to try to steal.
