Attorney General James Scores Court Victory Against Predatory Towing Company in Poughkeepsie
Bobby’s Towing Required to Pay Penalties and Restitution to Affected Consumers for Repeated Violations
NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today released the following statement after scoring a court victory against a predatory towing company, Bobby’s Towing, and its owner and operator, Robert Scores, for repeatedly harming consumers. The court order issued by the Dutchess County State Supreme Court requires Scores to pay restitution to affected consumers, bans him from the towing business unless he pays a $100,000 bond, and requires him to pay $20,000 to the state in penalties. In May 2022, Attorney General James filed a lawsuit against Scores and his company for illegally towing cars, overcharging for towing fees, falsifying tow tickets, and harming consumers.
“I am pleased with this court decision to stop Bobby’s Towing from hurting any more New Yorkers,” said Attorney General James. “Bobby’s Towing was a known predator and menace in Poughkeepsie’s streets, and today New Yorkers can rest assured that their cars will not be unjustly taken away from them. My office will continue to do everything in our power to stop any company that bypasses our laws and hurts consumers.”
