DaimlerChrysler Complaint - Harassing phone calls and violation to my privacy
Two years ago my husband and I purchased a Dodge Ram pickup from Chrylser. We never had any problems until Sept. of 2005. You see, I live in Mississippi and as everyone in the world knows last year MS and LA were hit with the worst natural disaster in the history of the United States. We are all still TRYING to bounce back from this devastation emotionally, physically and financially. My husband who owns his own business lost over 80% of his income due to hurricane Katrina. In the month of October our income for the month was $300. We came close to loosing everything. I helped my husband with his business but because of the lack of income I had to find work else were, not making nearly what my husband's normal income was. Because of this huge loss of income we got behind on our truck note. Did Chrysler care what we were going through? Hell no, they just wanted to know why we haven't paid and when were we going to pay. I told them numerous times that we were struggling financially due to Katrina, but they continued to harass us numerous times daily. It is now August of 2006 and almost a year since Katrina and my husband and I are just now starting to get our feet back on the ground financially. However, Chrysler has gone through great links to find out my neighbor's name and phone number, my brother-in-law's name and phone number and my mother-in-law's name and phone number. They have contacted each of these people about me and told my mother-in-law that I was behind on my note. By the way, I'm only one month behind! Today Sheila Hall of Chrysler Financial called me and demanded that I make a payment today. When I asked her about the phone calls to my family and neighbor, she called me a liar. She then said that she was tired of hearing about hurricane Katrina and that we should have the money. When I asked to speak to her supervisor or for a number, she refused to give it to me and hung up. My husband is an attorney, a trial lawyer to be exact. I will be filing a lawsuit against Chrysler Financial for calling anyone other than me or my husband and disclosing any information concerning me and for the continuous harassing phone calls. We will also start a class action lawsuit against Chrysler Financial.
