Complaint Review: HCTRA
HCTRA Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson law group ignored mailing address listed vehicle registration. Sent all notices to the wrong address. They refuse to acknowledge mistake in an effort to extort me into paying additional fees. Houston Texas
*Author of original report: DO NOT PAY THE FEE IF YOU ARE STILL TRYING TO PROVE YOU ARE RIGHT
*Author of original report: DMV Verified I Was Correct and The Address Was Wrong From The Beginning
The HCTRA has chosen to ignore the address listed on my vehicle registration that explicitly says in bold print "MAIL TO: PO BOX xxxxx Lafayette, LA". There is a temporary address listed under the "Owner's Name" section that they mailed their notice to and insist this is the address they should mail to by law. The problem with that logic is that every single entity including red light camera collections and toll collections have sent their collection notice to the address listed under the MAIL TO section on my vehicle registration and that includes the NTTA(North Texas Toll Authority).
I was not allowed to receive mail mail at the address listed under the "Owner's Name" section which was the whole reason I requested that all mail related to my vehicle go to the PO Box address when I was registering my vehicle. The Louisiana DMV would not allow me to put a P.O. Box address under the Owner's Name section of the vehicle registration and insited that I put the residential address I was living at at that time. [continued below]....
I've since explained this to the HCTRA and they insist that there is nothing they can do for me even though they are the ones who sent the initial notice to the wrong address. I've contacted Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson about how I never received an initial notice and how the HCTRA sent the initial notice to the wrong address. The law firm insisted that they did in fact send it to the right address and if I chose not to pay the 82.00 at the time of this report, they would bring me to court. The original toll fee was 4.32 which I would have gladly paid had I received the notice.
Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson bought bad debt and are essentially extorting me to either pay the 82.00 or drive 4 hours to show up in court. I will see them in court and will be consulting with an attorney to determine what kind of counter action I can take as I will have to take time out of my day spend my money to get to houston just to show the judge that the staff at the HCTRA and Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson are incompetant.
The problem with this entire scenerio is that this is currently affecting what was a pristine credit score and is contributing to unneeded stress. I have difficulties sleeping at night thinking that my vehicle could eventually be booted or that my re-registration will be rejected because the HCTRA and Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson will not admit to their mistake.
