I was illegally repoed in Massachusetts in 2017, didn't have any previous notice that, that was going to happen as I had called the lease lender and made partial payments. The recovery agent, "recovery zone", didn't contact me and entered my property and took the car without notice, they also damaged the front lawn as for whatever reason the truck ran over the full length of my front yard. They also coerced me into signing a paper stating I won't hold them liable or else I will lose all my property in the car. The court clerk refuses to accept my criminal complaint against them based on Chapter 255B Sec 20B. Also, requested a full examination of the person/business as per Sec 6 of 255B. I included Chapter 93A, Chapter 266 Sec 21, 30, 120, 120A 120D. Attorneys free for a day program at the court claimed they trespassed, the clerk claims I would have had to have placed a no trespass on them beforehand as though I was a psychic. Can I indeed file a criminal complaint or can I file a serious suit possibly of up to a million dollars as I'm already steaming mad on the way the courts defend these shady recovery agents.
The way to open a criminal case is to either go through the cops or the clerk. The cops likely won't touch this; they'll tell you it's a civil matter. The clerk already told you he's not issuing a complaint. So your path to pursuing a criminal complaint is closed.
You can file a lawsuit, but the fastest way to mark yourself as a crackpot with a ridiculous claim who should be disposed of as quickly as possible is to file a million dollar demand for driving over your lawn. Court is a place where serious people resolve disputes in a serious way. You go in there demanding all the money in the world and their first born, and I promise it won't go well for you.
You should probably get an attorney.
