  1. Very well said, These forwarding companies have taught a lot of other companies just how cheap these toothless tow truck drivers will work. We need an all out effort to make sure the forwarder and the toothless tow truck repo companies will have problems when they are sued for wrongful repossession.

  2. I personally know the recovery owner in this story quite well. The majority of his client’s are/were the big corporate forwarding companies, and banks like Santander and Fifth Third Bank. The same banks that were warned by professional’s in the recovery industry about the pitfalls of substandard agents clear back when these big lenders implemented contingency, flat rates and forwarding companies. Over and over and over again they were reminded “When you pay peanuts, you get Monkey’s”. And when you don’t pay a prevailing wage, agents WILL find another way to compensate. And if they don’t, they just don’t last long. This recovery agent is just another product of contingency, flat rates and the forwarding model. There are a hundred more repo agents like the one in this article out there, and they will continue to operate the same, as long as big lenders turn a blind eye and hope for the best.
