Im asking for $700 to finish getting my car fixed.
I apologize in advance for spelling errors I’m still a little pissed about this so I might be ranting a little. So it started a few weeks ago at around 10:00 AM on Monday when I woke up. I seen a woman taking pictures of mine and my roommates car. She was just taking pictures and then she tried to hurry off to her car and take off as soon as she saw me. needless to say I hurried up to stop her and find out what she was doing.
She turned to me and with a look of disgust she started yelling at me about our cars sitting there for too long. I was shocked because I have only been out of work for a week and my car has only been sitting there since Friday when it broke down. I asked her what she was talking about and that my car should be fine there is no way of them knowing it broke down. She said my car is missing plates and my roommate’s car (we’ll call him James), she said his car needed air in his tire. Which I can understand that one but my car needing plates? My car has plates but when she left I looked and they were gone.
I immediately started freaking out. I mean my car plates are gone and I did not move them. Turns out my other roommate (who we can call Alin), took my plates and put them on his truck over night to test if his bolts worked or something. The truck was never driven or anything and they were put back that day so I was not to mad about it. So once I got my plates on my car I told Alin and James what happened, and James gets pissed and tries to talk to them but they re not there. So we all decided to get stuff fixed. Alin’s truck is the one with no plates, so we gave it to a friend to hold onto till he can get plates while James went and called the pull apart in our area to come get his car. While I pushed my car into the driveway instead of the crib so it looks like i drove it.
The next day is when stuff hits the fan. So since im not working I stay home and watch the cars to make sure the tow trucks don’t show up to take them before pull apart does. I watch the cars till 3PM. No one shows up then I go to the bathroom and my roommate James runs in saying they re taking the cars. I run outside seeing his car being taken and already loaded up. It was an old car and James already got a new one since he was giving it to a junk yard. But his car was not the problem, It was mine.They started trying to hook my car up saying it had no plates, now im really confused and I run behind my car and I see the plates on there. So i started yelling that my plates are there the man in the tow truck said he does not care that the woman over there said to tow it because it has no plates.
I look over and see a new woman, one I never seen before we can call her B for bitch. I walked over to her telling her i had my plates on my car and she cant tow it. But with a stuck up voice she said that it does not matter your plates was not on there at 2AM (today) I had someone come check. I know she was lying I have been watching the cars. No one had come near the house all day. In my living room there a big glass sliding door if someone came up to my house I would have noticed them.I started getting upset and yelling louder I tried to keep my cool up behind me as I was talking to her the tow truck had already hooked up my car and started driving away.I lost it I grabbed my phone and started calling the police because she just towed my car for not having plates then she just looked at the plates while they were tacking my car. I try to reason with her telling her she sees the plates on my car why are you taking it still they were put on yesterday. She replies with an “I sent someone over.
They were not there at 2AM today”. My roommate James asked “um do you have pictures of it like the other day? Oor are you just saying shit hoping we except it?” I could tell he was losing it. He was not handling this as well as me. B went off stating that no we don’t have pictures but I trust my friend she has not been wrong before. I was just lost for words. This woman just took my car and is saying that since my plates were not on there at 2am (they were) even if they re on know (2 hours later) it does not matter. I forgot to mention this is a trailer park and shes the landlord. I guess Im not really sure she just kinda showed up she could just be an employee i don’t know.
I go back inside and started calling the cops which is what I was told to do. So we asked the cops to show up to see what we could do while i was waiting. I also had to check my plates because the tow truck driver said it does not matter there expired turns out they don’t expire till this time next year. So I go to the landlords place and show them my plates are not expired. But again in that damn annoying voice she says “You do know I can tow what ever car I want here so it does not matter if they were there or not I had it towed so just pay the fine and move on.” I was feeling sick from this. Even when the cops showed up they could not do a thing.
Saying it was a civil matter. The cops took my side saying it was fucked up but theres nothing they can do. When they went to ask about any warning they sent us they said they had a whole folder of them but we never got any warning over them the day before. My roommate James went to ask for a copy of the warnings. They only gave him one with no date and said others were verbal directly from her. But like i said before none of us have ever even seen here. At this point we knew she just wanted to get us to pay the fine which is 50$ for each vehicle she took, the price of the tow, the price to get the vehicle back, and since mine just broke down, the price to get it towed to a mechanic.
So here I am unable to do anything, my car gone, my new job starting in one week, and only 170$ in my wallet. Not enough to do anything. I cant sue them I have no money for it and I cant risk losing the case and having to pay that too. I was lied to and fucked over. I have no help with this. James and Alin have no way of loaning me money and I have no way of getting to work. I just feel so broken. I have been fucked over before but just knowing this is a place where people can do something like this to a person with no repercussions makes me sick. She could go to anyone’s house she owns and tow their car making them pay her 50$ to 100$ each car and she does not even need a reason.
So I started donating my plasma for weeks trying to get my car back and I final ended up getting the money together paying $700 to get my car back and to the mechanic and to be fixed. Now there asking for another 700$ for a cracked gasket. I cant get to work or anything now I feel sick to my stomach after all of this happened I don’t know what else to do
