HOUSTON – A borrower alleges a financial company wrongfully took possession of her vehicle twice despite being current on payments.
Larketa Williams filed a complaint on Dec. 5 in the Harris County District Court against TMX Finance of Texas Inc., doing business as Titlemax, alleging breach of contract and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff took out a loan with the defendant in March 2017 that was secured by her vehicle title. She alleges the defendant wrongfully took possession of her vehicle when she was current on payments, and a settlement agreement was reached in June 2017 that resolved the disputed issues.
The suit states the defendant again took possession of her vehicle in April when it had no legal right to do so. She alleges that the defendant's agents damaged her water meter and bust the main water pipe to her residence in the process of taking her vehicle. The suit states the defendant later returned her vehicle but has not compensated her for the harms and damages.
The plaintiff holds TMX Finance of Texas Inc. responsible because the defendant wrongfully took her vehicle on two separate occasions and falsely indicated that she owed money.
The plaintiff seeks all damages, with interest, costs and all other relief to which she may be entitled. She is represented by Leonid Kishinevsky of The Kishinevsky Law Firm PLLC in Houston.
