The Calusinski's need help
Paul and Cheryl in the beginning of last year needed a car. So they went to Liberty Auto Plaza in Libertyville. They were supposed to get a Hyundai Elantra but when they got to the dealer they were told it was gone and proceeded to show them a Nissan Versa Note no extras, no power windows etc. They were also told they qualified for the Presidents Fresh Start Program and that no one else would help them to finance it. So Paul and Cheryl believed them and proceeded to get the car.
Well, Liberty Auto financed them through a company called Prestige Financial. They were told Prestige was with the fresh start program and it turns out they weren't.
They tried to keep up on the payments because they needed a car, and unfortunately the payments were too high and they told that to Prestige last year in Nov. So Paul and Cheryl decided to do what they call a voluntary repo. Well, they didn't come and take the car until this last April so the car just sat in Paul's driveway for 5 months.
.....Needless to say, Prestige decided to take Paul and Cheryl to court for the balance of the car since at auction they supposedly only got 3,000. They sued Paul and Cheryl for the remainder which was 9000.00! They lost in court and now Prestige is planning on garnishing most of Cheryl's wages in 30 days. Since the judge in LAKE COUNTY approved it, that means they won't have any money for other bills and they will probably lose their house!
With all that they are going through with Melissa and now to be hit with this has Paul and Cheryl very scared and worried. Like I said we are not the type of people who ask for help but this is one time where they have nowhere else to turn!
I wish I could give you money to help but my husband just lost his job. Have you tried asking the amazing women at Project Hope in Barrington? Project Hope is across the street from St. Anne's Church in downtown Barrington. They help people all throughout Lake County and, I believe, parts of Cook County. I volunteered with them for years. They assist with all kinds of needs. Please call 847-381-5721. http://stannebarrington.org/human-concerns/project-hope/ Hope you get the help you need and deserve.
