The repo company's "Registered Agent" has denied the Court Citation twice now. Any lawyer types out there know my next move?

Foolish me for expecting that their agent, who is registered with the State of Texas would do his duty.

Might try talking to the DPS/TX Rangers, to ask if they could help or point you in the right direction. If they're licensed and bonded by the state they would have a copy of their insurance information.

Texas Dept. of Licensing & Registration website has them covered by Milwaukee Casualty Insurance Co.

I don't recall that information being posted 2 months ago when I made that comment. However, I'm still willing to bet you'll never see criminal charges against the repo truck

I called the registered agent today and was given another address to send the court citation to. This is friggin crazy. You’d think they would have the correct address listed with the State of Texas since you have to contact the state to find out who the registered agent for a company is in the first place???

Wow, before the server could send the papers to the new address, the postal service sent it again. This time the people accepted the papers.

I gave them to the JP Court Friday. The court said they’d be sending word soon. Nothing about this is quick. Good thing I’m patient.

Got some information today. The repo company Countrywide Asset and Auto Recovery of Houston, shuttered its Texas doors in 2012. The company that took my bike is Auto recovery of Houston LLC, which was formed in 2008.

Here’s the shady part, they’re doing business as CAAR of Houston, and told Alvin PD they were Countrywide Asset and Auto Recovery when they said they had a repo order. That sounds like fraud to me, or at least lying about to an officer to obtain police approval for the repo.

I’m assuming that the owner worked for Countrywide since they both are from Missouri. More research/study to come.

With a little more web browsing I found the president/owner Christopher Maddox also has another company in Pearland, Orange Street Properties LLC. The more layers this onion reveals, the more determined I get. Took forever to get his home address since nobody has phone books anymore.

I'm normally a pretty rational person, but when crap like this happens, and no one will accept responsibility, and even the police seem to be of very little help, it makes me mad enough to kick a puppy.

I sure hope you get this sorted out and get compensated not only for your bike, but for all your troubles and grief that this has caused.

This is a slow process sure enough. I knew it was gonna or a pain in the rear. I could’ve gone straight to their insurance company, but I assume finding the right company name still would’ve been an issue.

I have pics of the truck with the bike, the driver and truck, and my wife with all 3. The video isnít a problem, theyíll give it to me. Video of them taking and returning the bike. I also have a guy that worked there and witnessed it ready to testify. I donít want to simply contact their insurance company and fight them over what does and doesnít need repairs. I want the Bass turds to know the effed up. The people wonít return calls or even accept written letters. Biggest POS company Iíve had the displeasure to have contact with. BTW, Countrywide Asset & Auto Recovery of Houston is an assumed name that they get to use for 10 years. Their real name is Auto Recovery of Houston.

To request anything, theyíd first have to take a phone call or receive a letter. Too many phone calls not returned and all letters sent USPS certified mail were refused. The most recent was Monday.

As a customer, you have a different priority to them. Iím the repo they screwed up on by not bothering to check the license plate or VIN.

Iím assuming they hope Iíll simply lose interest.

After filing a lawsuit against them, I found out the company name they gave the Alvin PD and me is an ďassumed nameĒ. So after all the hullabaloo, I got a reply from the registered agent for Countrywide Asset & Auto Recovery stating that the company sold in 2012 to a guy in Pearland. His name is Christopher Maddox. The new companyís name is Auto Recovery of Houston LLC, doing business as: CAAR of Houston LLC. CAAR is an acronym of the original name. To make it even more muddled, they get to use the original name , as an assumed name, for 10 years. Guess what? You canít sue a company under an ďassumed nameĒ.

Iím sure this guy is really liked by some people, no matter his business practices. After all, Hitler and Stalin had mothers who probably thought their sons were stand up guys too.

There are some sorry people out there. Good on your for staying on him, I like to see this thread popping back up once or twice a week. Keep track of your time, I don't have any idea if you can charge an attorney rate unless you are one, but our admins bill out above $150/hour.

Honestly I dont think you are going to get anything from them. Best if you can just get an insurance company to handle it. I filed and won in court before and to this day still havent gotten a dime. I even had his property inspected by sheriffs office to see what could be auctioned off and the law is with the defendent not the one who was basically robbed. Maybe you need to file on HD financing for mental anguish for 50k.

But you can sue an owner. Just sue the Maddox guy and get this over with for your own sanity.
