PHILADELPHIA — A consumer is suing Best Buy Motors Inc., International Recovery Systems Inc. and John Doe Repo-Agent, citing alleged breach of contract, unlawful repossession, trespass and conversion.
Codie Carr filed a complaint on April 12 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against the defendants, alleging that they failed to provide a post repossession notice.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that although she was not in default of a finance purchase agreement, her 2007 Audi Q7 was repossessed from her locked garage.
As a direct and proximate result of that action, the suit says, she has suffered actual damages in the form of interference with her property rights, emotional distress, anxiety, depression, fear, embarrassment and sleeplessness. The plaintiff holds Best Buy Motors, Inc., International Recovery Systems, Inc. and John Doe Repo-Agent responsible because the defendants allegedly hired IRS to reposes the vehicle, defendant John Does 1-10 entered his garage and took the vehicle, used violence to take the vehicle, and false representation was employed to collect a debt. Defendant Best Buy refused to return the vehicle unless she paid for the entire contract, the suit says.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a declaration that defendants' conduct violated the law, compensation for actual damages, statutory damages, punitive damages, attorney's fees and costs. She is represented by William C. Bensly of Bensley Law Offices LLC in Philadelphia.
