Hi, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you, please give me a moment to review and possibly research answers to your question.

The bankruptcy will have no effect on that loan since it is secured by your car. Did you ask for a statement from them? Why are they saying it is more, is it due to interest?

Customer: replied 20 days ago.
I did not ask for a statement. The interest was paid with each payment I made and I made all payments with the interest
Expert:  DrakeLAW replied 20 days ago.

I see, then I understand your question. If interest was paid with each payment then it should be all paid off. You need to demand a statement from them and see what they are claiming the amount is based on. Good news is if you have any problems with them and the amount they are claiming, you can use your bankruptcy to deal with it rather than file a whole lawsuit against them.

Does that answer your question?
