Gamache & Myers / Shady business practices
In November of 2010, I missed my court date with Gamache and Myers and had a judgement against me, it was around 800$ or so that they were sueing for. In November of 2011, I began making monthly payments of $50 to pay them off, I figured whatever, $50 a month isn't a lot, but it would keep them off my back. In December 2012, I lost my job and was in contact with Gamache and Myers about this, they asked me about 4 times when I'd be able to make a payment, I told them I didn't know and they promised that if I called them and kept in touch with them, everything would be fine and I could continue making payments when I got a job.
It's April, 2012, and I still haven't found a job yet, my phone is about to run out of minutes and I was counting on the $51 in my bank accounts to get more minutes in order to keep calling up on my applications, well, to my dismay and sheer horror, I logged into my bank account to see both my savings and checking accounts were negative around $536.99 each... each one had been charged the same amount in order to clean me out. I had spoken with someone at Gamache and Myers in March and they didn't even hint to or allude that this was going to happen, "Just check in with us every month and let us know what's going on, and if you can make a payment." BTW, I'm still fighting for my unemployment benefits, but without a phone, I doubt I'll be able to do that now...
I called Gamache and Myers today, apparently they had begun Garnishment proceedings before the conversation in march even took place... Gee, don't ya think they should've mentioned something like that? ya know, give me a little fair warning? But no, here I am, -$1077.98... I should sue them AND Capital one together for emotional damages, and I'd probably win too.
I paid them about $600 from Jan 2012 to December 2012, the debt was for $800~, you think they'd leave it alone after that, eh?
Anyone know a lawyer that would sue them Pro-Bono? Seeing as how I have no money now thanks to the unethical practices of Gamache and Myers, and apparently, i'm not the only one to suffer from their injustices... If anyone knows a Lawyer that would sue them Pro-Bono my email is [protected]@yahoo.com, thanks!
