On 08/18/2007 a friend of mine needed to rent a car but told me the representative at Ace Sharper needed a debit card to make the one time charge of 485.00 for the deposit. My account partner gave the representative my debit card number. My account partner is a minor, and the rep, June Stewart knew this. My friend, who needed to rent the car landed herself in prison on a federal warrant. A day later an unauthorized hold hit my bank account. I called to dispute the hold only to have a hold for a greater amount hit the account moments after hanging up with Mr. Ernie Harper, manager. We called back and he said the office was closed and he would call us back the next day.
The day came, and there was no call. Each time I have contacted Ace Sharper, Mr. Harper is not there according to June Stewart who also told me she had no idea who had rented the car out even though her name is on the contract I obtained from the woman who went to prison's personal things.
The hold has cost me 120.00 in overdraft due to previous purchases just now being processed. Mr. Harper also assured my account partner, the minor, that I myself was responsible for all charges regarding the rented car since my debit card was used. They are holding me to a contract I never signed. I agreed only to the one time charge of 485.00. They put a hold on all every cent in my bank account days before the car was to be returned.
I do not and have never had the car in my possession. I don't even know where it is at the moment.
