In April of 2009 I was down on my luck & had bad credit. Thrift Investment gave me a car loan & an astronomical rate; with no chance of re-finance or early pay-off without a steep penalty. Unfortunately in September of 2009 - I was in an accident and the car was deemed totalled by my insurance company. My insurance company paid them; but per my insurance rep - they wanted the total payoff of the loan; not the amount the car was worth retail. If memory serves I bought the car around 3000; with an astronomical interest rate for a total payoff of like $9000 (my numbers here can be wrong, since the paperwork & loan info for the car has been in storage). My insurance paid them. But apparently not enough. They are claiming I owe them $69. I tried to call them to day to get information on why I owe them $69 when the car was totalled 6 years ago & they got a hefty sum from my insurance company. The ONLY thing I got in return was verbally assaulted, asked how I could look at myself int he mirror and what is wrong with me that I can't pay my bills and I was scum because I didnt pay my bills. I was never offered proof of this debt or anything. The only thing I received from them was a continual non-stop onslaught of verbal abuse throughout the entire telephone call. I was an still am deeply disturbed by the apparent lack of not only common courtesy but humanity by the representatives of this company. The lack of human decency by Dave from Thrift Invesntment is something that no human being should EVER have to be subjected to. I was repeatedly called scum & asked how could I look at myself int he mirror knowing I dont pay my bills. I was not even given an opportunity to ask for proof of this debt, I was not allowed a word in edgewise after my initial inquiry to provide my name & ss# - that is when the onslaught of personal attacks began & did not end until I was hung up on.
ANY positive reviews of this company are obviously from company employees
