Hello and welcome.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am sorry to hear of your difficult situation. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
Was the vehicle repossessed by the lender? Do you know how much they received for the vehicle? If so, how much did they receive?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
I was out of the state and my brother left the car in a parking garage, so I don't know who re-sold the car.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
Thank you so much!! I am well satisfied with the information you provided. Is there any way to find out who sold the car and collected the benefits? Should'nt they be responsible in some way if they didn't look up the VIN # XXXXX find out who the car belong to? Are they in any way liable?
Hello again, Jodi.You are very welcome and thank you for the positive feedback.No, since your brother abandoned the vehicle, the individual who sold it would not typically have liability to you, but they could be prosecuted for theft if you reported the vehicle stolen. If the police can recover the vehicle, that may aid you since it could be legitimately sold and the proceeds used to pay down the debt.
Thank you very much for your positive rating of my service. It has been my pleasure to assist you and I hope you will ask for me should a future legal need arise.
