Attn Socal Members. Beware of Globe Towing!

This is alert message to all members in Los Angeles area...

Be cautious when you park your car... especially at gas station...

My friend was at downtown Chevron gas station earlier today and went inside to pay gas to the cashier. When he came out, these guys were trying to tow away his car. My friend initially stopped them, but they said to pay $120 in cash now. He didn't have not much cash, plus there was no need to pay at all. They towed the car anyways even though my friend tried to stop them.

He followed to the towing company to pickup his car and now they are asking for $235 cash due to gate fee, etc... He then called 911 to file report. Cop showed up 1.5hrs later and advised my friend there is nothing police can do and to pay and deal with it later legally. My friend saw the cop chatting & laughing with towing company employees. Since he had no choice, he went to nearest ATM and paid them in cash to get his car back.

He will contact the lawyer on Monday to try to file a lawsuit.

FYI, the name of the towing company is Globe Towing located near 9th st and Santa Fe.

If you have ever experienced this or have any suggestions on how to resolve this issue, please advise.

One more thing, while my friend was waiting for the cop, there were about half dozen ppl who came to pickup their cars. All of them were towed away at the gas stations.
