Default car repossession scam

I'm in Florida. A tow company repossessed my vehicle right after I loaded it to relocate. Everything I owned was in that car and I had vacated my apartment and this created a homeless situation. I called and called. Had friends call. Had family call...they kept hanging up on us...refused to tell us their location or the amount charged for storage. They told me to not call them again, they would call me. They never did. They deliberately (documented in BBB) used this tactic to keep other peoples vehicle I have bank statements to prove I had the money to get my car back immediately. I have phone records showing that did not contact me one time. 6 weeks later they told me to come pick up my personal belongings. I get there and they will not give me my stuff unless I give the my keys. I give them my keys, now they want 40 dollars. I paid against my will, but they refused to give me their location therefore they have my brand new vehicle. It's documented they have done this before. I want to sue them. I have proof, I have witnesses. Yes, in my grief of losing my mom, abuses at funeral, I missed payments, but I stood up and said I'm sorry, my bad, how do I get it back?

If you had kept up with your payments you wouldn't have a problem.

Contact whatever agency regulates tow companies in your jurisdiction and see if they can help.

See your other post, it appears somebody answered there as well.
