Lone Star Towing of Fort Worth Stealing Vehicles in Illegal Tow Sign Scam

Lone Star Towing Illegal Sign

Everyone that has been towed by Lone Star Towing is entitled to a refund if the above tow sign is posted at the parking facility they parked at. The above tow sign is an illegal sign for several reasons:

It lacks the phrase: “Unauthorized Vehicles Will Be Towed at Owner’s or Operator’s Expense”

It lacks the phrase: “Towing Enforced” without any added text in the red background beneath the tow truck symbol.
It lacks the required information stating the days and hours towing is enforced.

Everyone that has been towed regardless the reason should file a request for a tow hearing, as Lone Star is failing to provide the name of the person, their address and phone number. The 14 day deadline to file the towing hearing is void when this information is not provided on the vehicle release documents.

It’s also advised that the vehicle owner or operator file an online complaint with the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulations against Lone Star’s tow company and vehicle storage facility licenses, as they will be fined for these violations, the more complaints, the more likelihood their licenses will be suspended or revoked.

The statute of limitation to file a tow hearing or statutory violation lawsuit is two years from the date your vehicle was towed.

Tow victims who are unsure about their ability to take Lone Star Towing and the parking facility on in court are encouraged to contact 817-704-3984 for assistance.

Any other questions, call the tow victim’s 24 hour hotline at 512-680-3190.
