Consumer Complaint: XX/XX/XXXX o I purchased a used XXXX XXXX XXXX from XXXX XXXX ( XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX , XXXX XXXX, CA XXXX ) o I had a trade-in vehicle which was a lease from XXXX XXXX XXXX ( XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXX, CA XXXX ). Vehicle was a XXXX XXXX XXXX o My lease had approximately 5 months remaining and I was already at or over my mileage limit for the full lease agreement.
o During the course of the negotiation, XXXX XXXX representatives promised to pay-off the remainder of the lease payments, pay any early lease termination fees and pay XXXX XXXX XXXX fees for mileage overages.
o I agreed to purchase the XXXX XXXX in good faith that this would occur and turned over the leased XXXX to XXXX o XXXX XXXX pilled on a large volume of paperwork which I later discovered had hidden fees which they built into the loan which put the burden of the remaining lease payments into my load. This is not what I had agree to and there was no explanation of the charges. Since I was rushed into signing the deal late into the night, I didnt notice it o I was only provided with one key to my now purchased XXXX XXXX XX/XX/XXXX o I returned to XXXX XXXX to turn in my spare XXXX key and handed it to the sales representative on duty. I explained the that the key needed to be handed to the manager and my salesperson, so it could be turned in with the XXXX A few months later, Ive begun receiving collections call from XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, Toyota Financial Services and many other collections agencies for approximately $ 1.1K. They state that I owe money for 3 things : o Missing hubcap for one tire o Missing XXXX key o Mileage overages on the lease Im willing to discuss the cost of the hubcap although I havent seen proof that it was damaged or missing ( despite my requests for documentation ), however, the key was turned into Mossy and the mileage should be paid by XXXX. Ive decline to pay any of those charges Since then Ive been harassed by Toyota Financial and multiple collection agencies. Multiple phones in a day, calls to my personal cell phone, calls to my place of employment, calls to my wife None of these calls have been authorized and I consider them a violation of my FDCPA rights.
Additionally, Ive received multiple letters which use threatening language towards me if I dont take action to resolve the account. I consider these letters also a violation of my FDCPA rights. They did not contain proper validation disclosures, substantiation of debt or physical evidence to support the debt claims The two debt collectors at fault are : XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX and Toyota Financial Services
