Consumer Complaint: My auto loan through Ally Financial was paid numerous times but the company always called trying to collect late fees 2 days after the bill was paid up to date a fee of {$32.00} and then WANTED AN ADDITIONAL {$32.00} LATE FEE BOTH ON THE SAME DAY. tHERE WERE TIMES WHEN i PAID THE LOAN AMOUT AND PAID ADDDITIONAL MONIES BUT 2 DAYS LATER RECEIVED A LETTER STATING THAT A LATE FEE OF {$21.00} was still due. This went on the entire time for the loan. Mostly it was phone calls requesting {$32.00} late fees after the bill was paid up to date two days prior but I did finally receive a notice two days after it was paid requesting additional late fees. I have documented proof of both, additionally these letters and phone calls were generated a few days after the bill was paid. The car was repossed and I tried to pay one payment which Ally would not accept. I feel that I was a victim to a SIMILIAR CASE THAT INVOLVED A MAN NAMED XXXX, WHICH i SAW ON XXXX. wHILE THERE IS PROBABLY NOT TIME TO SAVE MY VEHCLE XXXX XXXX vin # XXXX, XXXX title # XXXX, lein held by ALLY Financial XXXX XXXX XXXXXXXX, XXXX, XXXX XXXX. Debt was collected from PO boxes in XXXX, XXXX. I am sharing my stories so that you can prevent other consumers from experiencing fraudulent activity from ALLY Financial. I have documentation that could not be scanned at my local library but will and send in addition. But Ally also has copies that were sent to me, if they are being honest. I will file other complaints and forward documentation to you with the file.I prefer correspondence in writing and duplicates sent via email, I have had numerous problems with my XXXX account and emails disappearing or not sent to my inbox, another complaint for another time. Thank you in advance for your time and attention.
