Black Friday is too crazy, best to stay inside with the Daily Catch!
Jim Ford is a repo-man who has seen it all.
“I go out and take cars,” Ford told reporters. He is co-owner of Illini Asset Recovery. His job as a repossession agent is to go and retrieve cars from people who don’t pay their bills. Ford’s job is not easy. He shares, “I have been shot at, run over, just about everything you can imagine. I haven’t been stabbed yet.”
However, he was unprepared for what he found at the home of Stan and Pat Kipping. Hired to take the old couple’s car, he found himself in a moral dilemma.
As Ford drove away, he knew he had to do something. He got about a block down the road and pulled over and called their bank. “We’ve got to do something,” he told the bank. “How about I just pay current right now.” Ford immediately set up a GoFund Me account and raised most of it in the first eight hours. The Kipping’s got their car back a few days later.
Cheers to Jim for following his gut and giving mercy to these elderly folks. Your actions are an inspiration!
