Default Car Credit Complaints

Thanks! I am due to launch brand new Car Credit Compalints forum over the next week, still working on it as we speak. Not just focused at YCC but all the sub prime and prime car lenders. Many of them need to be exposed!

We won't be targeting the bank charges area, i will leave that to you experts - having said that I will include a forum directed to yourselves for advice and support within this area.

Regards,

W
