Customer Question
I took a “title”...

I took a “title” loan out at Title max. While doing the loan, the man helping me was asking me questions and figured out that I was a Paramedic and Instructor in the community. He told me that his brother was a fireman with the city department. No big deal. However, my first red flag should have been when I left and he didn’t give me any paperwork. I called the next day and I was told all the papers would be emailed to me. I never received any. In the meantime, I had trouble paying the loan and they did a repo on my jeep. It was horrible, but I know that part is my fault, since I couldnt pay it back. As embarrassing as it was already, I find out that the man at title max went and told his brother EVERYTHING!!! I even had some students coming up to me and asking about my jeep!!! They said they heard it from a guy at the fire Dept! EVEN my ex-boyfriend heard all about it! I am Still getting comments about it, and this is a new group of students! How can I get Him to stop talking?!?!

H​ello. Let me see if I can assist. Do you know the man's name at Title Max? If you know his name, you can send him a cease and desist letter to get him to stop slandering you in the community. You can also send a letter to his employer, Title Max, for invasion of privacy and violation of your privacy rights by this employee. Who knows what other sensitive information this employee is using or disseminating?

I will Definitely do that! And yes I know His name. The other problem is the damage is done, and you are right, what else is he doing with client information?!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
