Tell the officials when you call that they need to look into how many times each car is turned over and. If the right people look and see that for example:

Car # 601 is bought at the auction for $3500.00. Customer # 1 comes in and wants the car-Gerald sells it to them for $11,900.00. Customer #1 pays down $3000.00. They are set up on a payment plan for $200.00 every 2 weeks. Customer leaves. After 7 months Customer #1 had a family emergency and gets behind 3 days. Car is repoed and placed on the Lot immediately for re-sell. Customer #2 walks in, likes the car, buys the car for 12,500 pays $3000.00 down and is set up on a payment plan of $200.00 every 2 weeks. In 4 months they are behind 4 days and the car is repoed. Car is placed on the lot and resold-this time for $14,900 because customer #2 had done some upgrades on the car and it went for more. Customer #3 puts down $4000.00 because it is now a higher priced vehicle and they are setup on a every 2 week payment plan. Customer #3 pays for 11 months and lost their job. They call and ask for an extension. "Sure, come in and sign the paper for an extension the customer is told". Customer #3 has the car repoed while they are inside doing the paperwork. Customer #3 is now told to get it back they have to pay $3000.00 down and start over on the car at $14,900. Customer #3 loves the car and doesn't know what else to do so he borrows the #3000.00 down from his brother and gets the car back. Now 3 weeks later, the car is repoed again because their payment was posted to the wrong account. Customer #3 shows the receipt where they paid but is told to leave before the Sheriff is called and 'escorted' off the property by some thugs who surround Gerald-Sheriff says it is civil matter. The customer is unable to come up with another $3000.00 and loses the car because it is resold 2 days later for $12,900 and customer # 4 has to pay $3000.00 down.Customer #4 is set up on a payment plan and only has the car 2 months and is behind 1 day and the car is repoed. Car is now on the lot again awaiting a new sucker to buy it.

For car #601 which only cost Chaney's $3500-2 years ago-he has already made $25,600 and has the car on the lot for resale again. So the profit in Chaney's pocket to date far exceeds what he paid ofr the car and what he originally had the car priced for 2 years prior, which was only $11,900.

Now you understand his racket?

Sad part about this, is none of his customers were aware that when the car was sold each time, the profit he made was due to the customer he repoed it from. So whatever you do, tell everyone who has ever done business with Chaney to get theri money back. He has made a killing on unsuspecting customers and is Price Gouging the Consumer.

That's why they have the nice houses, and nice things...because they take rip off people constantly. I would NEVER, in the whole 36 years I have know about them, NEVER...EVER buy from them. I don't see how so many people don't hear the rumors and go there at all.

This is very true, I had also Bought a car from here and they tried to do the same. He sold my aunt, my father and myself a car all cars were repo within almost paying the cars off. my aunts car they resold, my father's was also resold and he only owe 700.00, i only owed about 1,200 on the car and when i tried to pick up the car, they keep asking you "how much do you have" i didnt want to tell them. I know i only owed 1,200 and was going to pay balance off, but they wanted more. He then asked me if i want to trade in the infiniti and take the 1,200 that i had and put it as a down payment to buy a new car, when i reply no, they still didnt want to give me my car back. When i said i was not going to leave without my car they tried to escort me off the lot but i called the police. when the police got there the cop asked me "how much i had" and i reply "how much do i owe" chaney comes back says if i want my car i must pay 3,000 to get my car back. i said i only owe 1,200 he told the police i must pay 1,800 in towing fees, i told the police that was crazy he's said that chaney could really charge what he wants for towing. Little did chaney know, i had the full 3,000 to pay him off but what is sad is he does this to many people and most dont have the funds to pay him off so he Continues rape customers of thier hard earn money. Chaney should be shame But in reality he could care less.. Please Beware of this company.
