SALT LAKE CITY —Richard L. Hyde has been promoted to chief operating officer of Prestige Financial Services Inc. Hyde most recently served as the company’s executive vice president, a position he has held since 2009. 

Hyde’s 22 years of professional experience have been devoted to loan servicing in the below-prime market.

These responsibilities were further expanded to include oversight of Prestige’s loan production personnel.

    RE: Cynthia King (Park Ridge, Illinois) ~~ Prestige Financial ~ Pontiac G6

    Cynthia King (my daughter) told you where the car was that you wanted to repossess and you towed
    her Pontiac G6 from AAMCO in Crystal Lake, IL and gave her your word that
    you would call her to meet them there. YOU DID NOT!~

    Her dead husband's ashes were in the trunk!
    I have called Shelly a few times, left messages to find out the name of the
    towing company to possibly get my son-in-law's ashes back. You do NOT return calls.

    What kind of company would keep a woman from retrieving her husband's ashes.
    Shelly and several other of your employees called ME and harassed me daily ~
    Sometimes 2 to 3 times a day even after I told them not to call me again. (which is ILLEGAL)
    I am 69 years old and sickly, yet hey harassed me daily for months.(which was illegal)
    I have a documented proof of this recorded.

    Shelly insulted my daughter to me on the phone. I have lost 2 children,
    my husband and a grandson. Cynthia and her older brother are all I have left.

    PLEASE contact me with the name of the towing company & if possible their phone number
    so I can TRY get the ashes of my dead son-in-law back for my daughter.

    This is the 4th request. Please, please do this.~

    Thank you.
