This company is ran by crooks. I wish I had of gone elsewhere to buy a vehicle. I have never been treated so disrespectfully in my life. I am paying double what my vehicle is worth by the time I'll have finished paying for it. Do yourself a favor and pass on these jokers. Take the bus, call a cab, get a ride with family or friends, hitchhike, or walk, do whatever you have to do to avoid being raped by these thieves.

Please ppl read these reviews and BELIEVE them and run like hell from this company. These ppl are the rudest company I have ever dealt with! We are ALL human and everyone falls on hard times...these ppl do not care at all. My advice to you is to try and get another loan from some where else. These ppl will screw you over in the long run. I wish I had looked up some reviews on these ppl before I signed my loan. I hope that I am helping whoever is reading this. DO NOT do ANY business with this company. You get a different rep every month who knows nothing about you, they cut off your car even when you make your payments. I absolutely believe that these ppl do not know what they are doing. It is has been the biggest and worst hassle and mistake of my LIFE and I mean that.

If i could give this company negative stars, i would. I purchased a vehicle from a buy here pay here dealer, i was only 18 at the time, so i didnt have a big selection of where i could get a car from. After my first few payments, my loan was transferred to IDA because i was in good standing on my payments. Ever since then my life has been a living hell. They are the rudest people i have ever had to deal with. My account gets transferred at least once a month to a different associate there, so i have to keep up with 10 different ext. so i can reach at least one of them. If my payment isnt in by noon on the day its due, they are ringing my phone off the hook, even though they dont close until around 5 or 6. If its a day late, they are threatening to repo or disable it. No grace period what so ever. Dont expect them to work with you at all. They dont care what you are going through. They just want your money, and not a day late. I am literally to the point where i am going to tell them to come get my car. Id rather have a repo on my credit than to have to deal with them one more day.

On Feb 13,2011 I was admitted into the hospital where I was told that I had Type II diabetes. My condition was so bad that I spent 3 days in the ICU and 8 more days after that in the hospital. While in the hospital I got a call from IDA and I told them what was going on and that I was in the hospital. I further told them that I have been unemployed since January, however I did make the payment for January but February payment was going to be late. I was told that they would work with me and that I needed to stay in contact with them. When I was released from the hospital I called them and told them that I have a job and that I would start work on March 14, 2011 and that I will be getting paid weekly and that I would catch the payments up. I further told them that at the end of the week I could give a partial payment as a sign of good faith. Well a few hours after that conversation I went to get in my truck to go back to the hospital when they disabled my truck. Furious and scared I called them and they informed me that they were not going to cut the truck back until they had a payment. I explained that this truck is needed for me to get back and forth to the doctors and that I needed to get my insulin. I have no other vehicle nor do I have access to one. I have never been late on payment in 1 year. The company refused to turn my truck despite my medical condition. Weigh out your options before dealing with this company because they would rather let you die than work with you nor do they keep their promises.

This company is rude. Their whole goal is to take your car because they don't even give you the courtesy of missing a payment by 30 days. They threaten to reposses after your payment is less than a month behind. I've been paying them for over a year and a half and its a complete hassle. I finally asked them if they wanted my payment or not. The truth is that they would rather you not pay so that they can take your car and sell it to another desperate sucker. Trust Me, Its better to walk than deal with this company! I have been trying to get rid of my vehicle and this loan for over 6 months but I'm so upside down due to some "funny" math on their part.

The business works with a few other small dealerships and yes they are rude. I bought a 2009 PT Cruiser from Auto Loan Finders in Kennesaw, located off of Roberts Blvd. When purchased I noticed that there were some dark marks on the bumper. The salesman told me it was dirt. I took it to the car wash but then the bumper got loose. The black marks were actually grooved into the bumper. I then noticed the corrosion and when standing to the side the entire front appeared to be pushed in. Well of course, I thought that was just nothing. Well, here I am five months later with a car that was in an accident prior to my purchase, was not reported to CARFAX and was sold with the entire front end damaged and taped together by duct tape. The owner at Autoloan FInders had the nerve to imply that I did this mess. IDA and ALF are horrible, rude, and please please take your business and hard earned money to a reputable lender and dealership.

These people are the rudest a--holes I have ever had to experience. They are extremely rude and they are don't care one bit about the individuals they finance. It's one thing if I didn't maintain communications with them, yet I do. I call them and the first thing out of their mouth is well we are going to disable your car, I am trying to make the payment but due to my daily limit with my bank its being rejected. WTF! They immediately address its not their problem and that they will disable the car. They suggest doing a money-gram, how can I? It's the same amount that will not be approve over the $500 limit allowed by the bank. Yet, they try to make it seem like I don't have it. I tell them I do and if they would like they can contact my bank for verification. They refused and once again revert to to saying we will disable the car if we don't have the payment first thing in the morning. I tell you this is the type of relationship anyone should have with a finance company for the next 3,4 or 5 years. So unprofessional and not what anyone should experience. The entire staff is rude, short and can't talk professional. They all have attitudes as if they hate the job and talk to us like we are criminals or less than them. I don't care what the situation that leads an individual to this organization they still should not have to be treated in this manner.

Independant Dealers Advantage, LLC Duluth, GA
They are a scam company that props up various used car dealers with inflated values on loans. They are purely a front for racketeering.
Do not do business with them in any way shape or form. The judges in Gwinnett are in their pockets and will break the laws of GA to side with this company. The judge has issued many judgments with improper service. They notify via USPS not certified mail over and over again.
You cannot afford the money it would take to beat them, and they count on this to keep them in business.
Their business model is simple:
They sell a car at way over value. Repossess it, sell it back to a different dealership (that they are fronting)at a loss, then charge the customer the charge off amount. They are taking advantage of loopholes in the law that do not require them to sell the car back at anything close to the declared loan value of the car.
After a judgment is issued, because the defendant never knew about the case and coundt fight it, they do not wait to file for garnishment. There is no good faith of any kind from this company.
They do not even try to pretend to be in the gray areas of the law because they have been allowed to operate with impunity for so long.
Most of their cars are resold numerous times through this scam. This makes them 20 or more times the value of each car in its life cycle with them.
Doubt me, look at the Gwinnett county court records for this company.
The citizens need your help to combat this type of loan sharking.
