Grand Furniture Complaint - Grand Furniture is out for my BLOOD!
VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA -- In July of 2010, I was involuntarily discharged from the military (through no fault of my own). I've had an account with Grand furniture since 2006. Not once, was I ever late on my payments. Now, I am unemployed and struggling. I am a single mother of two infants and a Veteran of the Armed Forces. I called Grand Furniture and told them my situation. They told me they understood my situation and that I could make whatever payments I could until I could find a job. I was living off a VERY small unemployment check and could barely afford to feed my kids and myself. I was hurting! Then, one day, I received this crazy COURT ORDER from them. Let's just say, I didn't expect it. Especially since they said I would not be in any legal trouble as long as I made some kind of payments. So, I went to court, still unemployed, and tried to explain that to their Reps. The two ladies said to call my account manager and work something out. I called and called and called and left a few messages for her and got no reply for weeks. Then, I go to check my bank account balance and found out that they had a freeze on my accounts. WTF!!!! It's bad enough that I barely have any money!!! I have other creditors that I owe money to and not once have they ordered me to go to court or freeze my accounts. They ACTUALLY work with me. They are compassionate towards Veterans and they understand that most people are having a hard time in this economy. But not GRAND FURNITURE OF VIRGINIA BEACH, VA. They are seriously after my blood. I just found out that they are going to put a lien against my house. You gotta be kidding me!!! What's next, are they going to request that they take my kidneys and heart as well? So, if you plan to do any business with them, think again. Go with another company that actually has good furniture and understanding people. I plan to go to court to file a complaint against them for taking my unemployment and make them pay me back for that. By FEDERAL LAW, they are not suppose to touch that money. Also, I am going to the local news channels and papers as well.
