Police Looking into Car Lot Complaints

(La Porte, IN) - Complaints about a car lot in La Porte are under investigation by police. RCH Autoplex at 1301 Pine Lake Avenue filed for bankruptcy several weeks ago.


According to La Porte Police, numerous complaints about titles not being delivered along with loans, trade-ins, and warranties not being paid.


Amanda Boyer of LaPorte, Indiana, is one of their customers. Boyer said the warranties on her car and husband's truck were never paid, and her bank was not paid on her trade-in. As a result, she and her husband now have three car payments on two vehicles, and both vehicles from the car lot are not running all that great.


"I've been contacted by at least 40 other people that are having the same issue. They are ruining so many people's credit and their lives right now. I don't know how people can treat people like that," Boyer said.


Boyer also spoke to a police investigator on Thursday morning. 


Police advise people who bought a car there and feel taken to call the detective bureau at (219) 362-9446.


According to company officials, the bankruptcy was filed due to mismanagement and restructuring the debt to make good with creditors and stay in business.
