Stop predatory tow companies from towing truckers who are out delivering food to keep on peoples tables Commonwealth Asset Recovery Phone: 484-358-6256 | Fax: 610-625-4133 So this piece of sh*t company towed a truck drivers truck this past weekend. He came home for a hot meal and a hot shower. Restaurants are closed. Drive thru’s don’t allow him in with the truck. He was hungry and tired making sure these assholes have food on their tables and their families bellies are full. He took Debbie Bigley StClair whole paycheck to get the truck they where holding hostage back! Deb now can’t pay her bills or buy food for her family because of their greed!!! The LA Fitness is closed due to coronavirus. But that didn’t stop this greedy company from taking Deb’s fiancé’s truck. We demand you refund the money now!!!! What you did was wrong especially during this pandemic! Make this wrong a right
