In May 2003, Eileen Grimshaw, realising that she gave the impression that she favoured her son Todd to his brother Jason, and also fearing that she had lost the latter to his ne'er-do-well father Tony Stewart, agreed to his request to take on a personal loan in the sum of £1,800.00 to buy a car and he would pay her back £62.00 per month. Just a few weeks later, Jason crashed the car and suffered a broken arm meaning he was unable to work as a builder and that Eileen would have to find the money from her own salary at Street Cars. Within weeks she was struggling to find the money and asking for advances on her wages. After dealing with debt collector Rob Drury on several occasions, she was shocked to receive a visit from Frank Molton and two heavies who said he had bought the debt and glibly stated that with his “highly extortionate interest rates” she now owed £5,000.00 and demanded £385.00 immediately. When Eileen told him that she didn’t have it to hand, he repossessed the sofa and television on the spot, swatting aside Todd's sarcasm about how proud his mother must be of him with a rejoinder that she’d never had credit in her life and if she couldn’t afford something, she didn’t buy it at all.
