I was shopping at the autozone on wyckoff and realized i had left my phone at the dollar tree around the corner. I ran over to retrieve it and approximately 7 minutes later i came back and my car was towed.
A man not in uniform came out to tell me they had towed me and it was around the corner. The truck driver told me i had to pay cash so i went to an atm. I called the store managaer and explained my situation. She was not helpfull in the slightest.
She said it was my fault for not telling an employee i was running to get my phone. I feel like it happened so fast something felt off. Like they had been waiting and watching to call a tow truck that had to be next door. It was less than 10minutes.
Like 5. I could t believe it and told the manager i would not return to the store ever again. She said to have a nice day. I thought it felt very aggressive but took it at a loss and that the staff was just unfriendly.
Two weeks later i was telling a friend the story and he said something similar happened to him. He said that a man hanging out in the parking lot was working with staff and tow operators to scam people in the lot and split the cash.
I will never shop there again and tell everyone i know to do the same. Go to another auto zone where the staff is working for and not against you.
