Nature of Complaint: Vehicle loan; Problems when you are unable to pay
Result: Company believes it acted appropriately as authorized by contract or law
Response from Company: Closed with explanation
Complaint: I ended up in a financial bind as a single mom with no help or support and no government assistance and ( should have known better ) got a payday loan then title loan through Advance America. I had a XXXX in the family and suffer an illness that has caused me to miss work. I ‘ve asked for leaniency with this company and they call me XXXX times daily while at work, show up at my boyfriends home and leave notes on his door, call my daughters phone XXXX times daily and they have been asked to stop doing all of this. I would gladly work with them and pay my debt if they were n’t so intrusive, rude, showing up at my door as I am literally too sick to move and throwing their business card at my child, snapping at her and demanding that she tell me to call her TODAY ”. My daughter is at school and feels harassed. I feel both humiliated and harassed. My physical illness is worsened with the stress these bills have caused me. I had to do what I had to do to support myself and my child. They were n’t the smartest choices but I made them. I ‘ve tried to scramble to come up with solutions but them harassing me is slowing down that process. If they show back up at anyone ‘s home ( because they are not professional nor do they follow privacy laws ) again I will remove them from my property myself.. ( 1360970)
