Consumer Complaint: Navy federal credit union threaten to report my car stolen when I was unable to make payments. I stopped driving the car, thinking they would just come get the car. It was stolen and I never reported it as stolen based on them telling me they were going to report the car stolen against me. For years they tarnished my credit even still even though this occurred almost 7 years ago. They report inaccurate information to the credit bureaus and have kept me in a state where I havent been able to recover. I had XXXX insurance I was going had filed for XXXX with the XXXX while this was happening I was working due to my XXXX and couldnt make the payments. I am now XXXX XXXX XXXX when I tried to get them to honor the XXXX insurance they refuse. Ive written to the ceo to no avail. I saw they had to pay I deserve some of it due to their business practices. Please help! I still have the recored conversations.
