Additional Notes

Complaint: This business was too fast to file a lien to DMV on a 2010 Nissan, Versa that was taken there for storage. I have AAA insurance and they paid this business for storage of my car. PAID. The car was deemed salvaged by AAA insurance and I received the blue book price for it. Case closed, however DMV send me a letter stating that my declaration of opposition to the lien is invalid. The lienholder ****'s ............ has dragged me into this mess unfairly. I have a very high credit score, 800's, and I have never ever had a lien. I try to be a great citizen in society and I am very sad that this has happened because of this business unprofessionalism. Product_Or_Service: car/nissan/versa/2010/blue/

Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Other (requires explanation) I just would like ****'S FLEET AND MAINTENANCE AND TOWING CO. to fix or make it right with DMV. I want to receive a letter from them that they were paid by AAA insurance and the LIEN was a error on there behave.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 8, 2015/03/18) */ Contact Name and Title: ******* ******* gm Contact Phone: XXXXXXXXXX Contact Email: ********** car was towed into our tow impound yard after 72 hours we are required per dmv to start a lien sale on all cars in our lot . this car was picked up on the 5th day the insurance paid for the lien and all charges this lien will never affect mrs ***** credit at all its not that type of lien we are just doing are job and again sorry for any problems this has caused but we get stuck with a lot of cars from people not picking them up and we have guidelines to follow with dmv that's why we use a 3rd party Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (2000, 10, 2015/03/23) */ (The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.) I feel better now. I am glad to see this company state that my credit will not be affected. I am hoping that when I do business with the bank in the future, this will not show up and cause me work to reopen the case. Thank You To All.
