Consumer Complaint: On a letter date XX/XX/18, Ally sent me a bill for {$1200.00}. I fully reject this as not being valid. A ) There is/was no excessive wear to the vehicle ( {$540.00} ) B ) Sales tax on excessive miles/excess wear and tear if false ( mileage was significantly below what was allowed as per lease agreement ( {$47.00} ) C ) Total Daily Extension Charge is false as the only reason the car was kept past the date in the lease is because Ally, for 4 months lied to both myself and my mother ( the person who was going through the lease buy out ), dragged its feet throughout the process and is guilty of fraud against and elderly woman. They scared her into thinking the car was going to be repossessed on a phone call and she drove that day to the dealership to turn the car in. The {$620.00} listed for that charge is their own fault. If they proceed in taking this matter further, I’m going to district court to file a countersuit in the tens of thousands due to all of the lost money paid into the vehicle for the lease. The process was initiated for the lease buy out in XXXX and in XXXX the lied to my mother ( whose primary language is not English ) and scared her into surrendering the car. This is after I have proof in an email that the buy out application was approved. Given that I am in MA, that is the only reason I haven’t filed a suit against Ally already. Now I will have to take time off to sue them.
