CHICAGO — A son and his mother are suing an Elgin finance company, alleging the defendant made false representations of the status of the plaintiffs' vehicle.
Dejuan Palmer and Debbie Palmer filed a lawsuit May 31 in Cook County Circuit Court against Pronto Finance, Inc., doing business as Pronto Prestamos, alleging fraud.
According to the complaint, between 2012 and 2013, the Palmers suffered damages and lose of property because Pronto Prestamos made misrepresentations to the actual status of the plaintiffs' impounded 2003 BMW in order to appropriate the car for its own benefit.
The Palmers seek a trial by jury, actual damages, punitive damages, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. They are represented by attorneys Lance A. Raphael, Justin C. Hagan and Katherine M. Bowen of The Consumer Advocacy Center PC in Chicago.
