A Pawn Shop in Corozal Town has been accused of swindling a property for a loan that was issued and the client is tonight crying foul. According to a resident from Sarteneja, who requested to remain anonymous, in 2013 she borrowed a loan from the Pawn Shop of $3,500 dollars but in order for the loan to be approved, the client was asked to provide her property title, which she did. The property owner says that she had a few problems in making payments due to financial constraints and that is when she said the Pawn Shop owner took advantage of the situation….. We spoke to her via telephone today

 

“Yo le hice un préstamo a el de $3,500 y yo le estaba pagando a él cada mes el interés que él me estaba cobrando era de  $525.00 y lego un momento que yo ya no lo ida pagar porque yo soy ama de casa y tuve unos atrasos y él me dijo que ya  no ay tiempo y que ya no es mío el terreno porque él ya me lo quito. Entonces el mando un carta acá en Sarteneja con el pólice y en la carta decía que me tengo que salir de mi casa y la carta no estaba sellado ni confidencial. Viendo tanto interés que me cobraban yo busque ayuda que me aconsejen porque el interés era demasiado porque ni el banco ni el credit te cobran $525.00 de interés por $3,500.00, busque ayuda y se suma a $7,000 que yo ya le pague al señor y él me quiere quitar mi casa y él se quedó con mis documentos de mi casa y yo lo voy a pelear en la corte porque es injusto lo que me hizo porque se aprovechó de mi necesidad y mi casa tiene dos cuartos, una sala, una cocina y un baño y es casa vaciado.”


For balance, we contacted the Pawnshop in question today for comment but we were told that the owner was out on business. We’ll keep trying tomorrow.
