The way I see it, they "stole" my car and then held it ransom for ridicuous amounts of money ($158.00) to get it back. My car was only in the lot for approximately one hour, when I returned, it was gone. When I contacted the towing company (Retriever Towing in Portland Oregon) they informed me that the cost would be $158.
The lot was 5 blocks away from the location in which the car was towed. And, the car was in the Retriever Towing lot for no more than 30 minutes. They justified (or tried to) the vast expense as follows: $95-tow, $3.50-to drive the 5 blocks, $30. to hook it up to the dollies(?), $25. for the 1/2 hour that the car was stored, and finally $5. for the dispatch.
This is unacceptable! How long have these Nazis been getting away with this? Is this legal? I was literally forced to pay these fees, in order to get my car back. I want to make it very clear, that I did NOT consent to this business transaction.
Please help me! They must not get away with these unethical business practices!!
