I had purchased a vehicle from an auto dealership back in December of 2001, and was making my payments by the due date (or close to it, depending on the day I was paid).
However, as time went on, there would be months (at least four) when I would be called by various representatives from Reliant Financial, asking (or demanding) payment. With these phone calls, I have had to send additional payments for the payments they claimed were never received, which means other bills went unpaid.
Finally, on the morning of Sunday, November 23, at about 8:30 am, Michael J. Baxter pulled into the residence in a truck with a add-on towing device and proceeded to hitch his truck up to my car. As he attempted to back up to my car, he actually hit my car, breaking the driver's side tail-light assembly. After repeated requests to unhitch my car, he demanded the keys to the car. I asked him for his name, and was handed a business card with his name/business on it. After retrieving personal posessions out of the car, he then proceeded to drag it backwards for about a quarter-mile. This may not seem like much, but my car is FRONT-WHEEL DRIVE; and by doing this, not only do I have a broken tail-light assembly (which would be considered as "Defective Equipment" by the local law enforcement), but also possible transmission/drivetrain damage.
Reliant Financial never once contacted me to say there was a problem with my account (past due, non-payment, etc.), nor was I presented with any sort of paperwork from Michael J. Baxter at the time of the repossession (other than his business card).
I do not wish to make payments on a car that is no longer safe to operate, let alone continue to pay for damaged goods.
