My young former foster daughter has gotten into the title-loan-mess in Camden County. Today, the company contacted her and advised her if she does not make a payment within 24 hours, a warrant will be issued for her arrest.

KNOWING that this is a civil matter in many areas, I personally contacted the company, saying I was thinking about trying to pay the loan payment for my daughter. I mentioned that I THOUGHT it was a civil matter and that they could take her to court for judgment, but that my daughter said that she had been threatened with the warrant. The young lady I spoke with responded, um, well, um, we have the option to go either way. I then asked her out of which court the warrant would be issued. She didn't answer, but said if I made the payment there would be no warrant. When I asked from WHERE the warrant would be issued if I did NOT make the payment, she simply said "Woodbine." If I had been on my game, I would have asked her under what criminal code the warrant would have been issued.

I wrote e-mails to several Georgia legislators who confirmed that it is indeed a civil mater.

Then I called the Governor's Office of Consumer Affairs, the Industrial Loans Office, the Insurance Commissioner and the Federal Trade Commission, who ALL said that this is a civil matter.

When I contacted the office again this morning, they INSISTED it was a criminal manner, even though they could not provide the criminal statute under which a warrant would be issued - probably because there ISN'T one?????????

It is reprehensible that the company will make threats that they cannot complete, but they will have to deal with the consequences. A complaint has been filed with the FTC and future written complaints will be filed with the Better Business Bureau and the Consumer Protection Agency.
