A BBB “Alert” on Lobel Financial Corporation’s profile page describes a “pattern of complaints” against LFC “concerning billing issues.” According to the BBS, “consumers are alleging that they are given 45 days to make their payments after they are due before repossession occurs, but many claim that the vehicles are taken before the timeline they were given, at times after payments have been made.” The BBB notes further that “the complaints allege that the is hanging up on consumers.” LFC did not respond to the BBB’s attempts to contact the company about “this pattern.” The 25 negative reviews on LFC’s B profile support these allegations.

In November 2016, a complainant alleged that Lobel Financial Corporation repossessed his car in 2003 and that the complainant then did not hear “another word” from LFC. Years later, with a negative report still on his credit report, the complainant inquired about the statute of limitations and learned that LFC had filed a court case to collect the claimed deficiency on his auto loan.

The complainant indicated that Lobel Financial Corporation received more than $4000 more than it agreed and that LFC had “taken advantage” of him as a “senior citizen living on a fixed income.”The BBB listed the complaint under the heading, “the business responded to the dispute but failed to make a good faith effort to resolve it.”

Lobel Financial Corporation LFC Calling You?

Understanding Your Debt Collection Rights

Consumers are protected from abusive debt collectors from the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). By way of instance, the debt collector must identify himself or herself, who they’re working for, and what debt they’re collecting. The FDCPA claims that debt collectors can’t use any deceptive or misleading representation, like implying the debt is secured by the USA or any particular state. Additionally, they can’t use a badge or uniform to pretend they’re a government employee collecting a debt. Misrepresentation is a violation of the FDCPA and could be reported as such.

In case you’ve been a victim of a debt collector’s wrongdoing, then you can search for justice under the FDCPA. You have the right to pursue a claim against the debt collector; if you prevail, you can collect up to $1,000, plus attorney fees and court costs.

    Hello I financed a car thru lobel in 2021 made all of my payments till December of 2022 fell behind a half of payment. But made the next months payment in full well before I could make the next month’s payment they repoed my car and charged me 1807.00 dollars! To get my car out! The tow company they used to repo my car damaged severely by dragging down my driveway my car is a Mercedes benz and to have it repaired will cost alot of more money do I have a case?

    I purchased my first car in Nov. 2018 lobel was the financing company. My first payment was Due Dec 10th. I made the payment late on Dec 23rd. I received my statement for Jan on Dec 28th stating they received my payment and my next payment was due Jan 10, 2019. Other than that statement I received nothing further saying there was any issues. On Jan 3 I went outside to go to my car to Drive to work and it was gone. I find out it has been repoed. I was completely confused. I called lobel and tried to find out what was going on, they told me I needed to speak to a specialist buy none were available and they would call back by the end of the day I heard nothing a called again still no answers. This went on for a week before I got to speak to the specialist. They said my payment was returned. And they called me several times to resolve the issue I had zero calls from them. My bank says the payment was never even taken out. Regardless of that I wanted to know what it would take to get my car back they told me I had the pay the full balance which was more than $20k. I just put $6000 down a little over a month ago and that took me a long time to save. I also paid $868 to get insurance started that’s deposit and premium payment.Which is a complete waste I didn’t even have it for more than a month. I told them there’s no way I can do that and I want to speak to someone about this. For weeks I called and tried to speak to a supervisor or anyone to resolve this and I was hung up on after hours of waiting, laughed at and literally not listened to it was like speaking to a machine. After this happened I saw they have done this to so many people. My payment even if I didn’t make it was not even 30days past due and they took my car. The repo company who took my car would not let me get my tools for work, my work I.D., daughter’s car seat, stroller or gun out without paying $150 plus $15 everyday after to get the items out. I feel robbed and can’t believe this is even illegal. Something needs to be done about what they are allowed to do to people.

    I was sold a lemon by a car dealership that just disappeared. The car stopped running the first week we bought it. We took it back , they got it to run and then a couple weeks later it stopped running again. The dealership had been shut down . We voluntarily gave back the car to Lobel. I could not afford payments on a car that did not run . They sold the car and charged me for the difference. I have been paying 50 dollars per month for 5 years . Recently the charge for more than I paid for the car showed up on my credit like I never paid anything . It looks like I need a lawyer .

    We had a car repoed around 10+ years ago. We never received notice of any money due so assumed it was evened out. Lobel was the finance company and there was never anything on our credit reports that we owed money. Then recently, a friend of ours recieved a notice from the sheriff’s department claiming a lein on my hubands paycheck! (He does not work for this man.) But the point it – we had been sued, never informed we owed anything on the repoed car, they won in court (thanks to no notification to us), and they claim we owe over $10k (I think we bought the used car for around 8K and paid for a year or so?) They claimed they served us on a particular date – however upon checking husband’s credit report the address for us at the time did not coincide with the address they claimed to have served us. Can we fight this?
