Not sure what the collateral is. But you may need to hire a competent attorney to file suit. It has to do with the value of the collateral as to whether it is worth the trouble. The Fair Debt Collection Act might give you some relief, as well as a set of TN Consumer Protection Statutes.

We have an electronic record showing he authorized the work, parts and the costs. He only paid $500 for it and appears to have been trying to "flip" it for profit. It seems he's trying to cut his losses leaving us with labor and parts already paid out on his authorization.
