I am being sued for an old debt. I became disabled in 2015. I tried to contact the loan people but all they wanted was money that I did not have. I get only $1060 p/month to live on.

I contracted to buy a RV then decided to pay it off by

I contracted to buy a RV then decided to pay it off by borrowing the money but the people I was buying from said that they didn't have the title. When I asked who owned the title they informed me that it was a loan company but would not tell me. I have informed that in the state of Oregon that unless you have a clear title it can't be sold. Is this true? The credit union that they were paying has sent a repo driver out to my home but there is a truck without battery since it was stolen sitting front of it and someone I know just moved into it with a lot of items so it can't go anywhere very quickly. What is my rights?

I was being sued by an attorney who is representing two

I was being sued by an attorney who is representing two different payday loan places. I called the attorneys office and made an agreement to pay $40 a week a piece on the accounts. $80 total. I realized now, two weeks later, I've bitten off more than I can chew. I called the attorneys office back and explained I can't afford that and that's how I got in this predicament in the first place. I asked if we could lower the payments to $25 a piece a week. $50 total or $200 a month. The lady said they can't change the agreement. I asked what am I supposed to do since I can't afford it. She said I can't give you advice. You need to speak to your lawyer. I obviously can't afford a lawyer right now. What can I do? Any suggestions? Please?

Will try and make this a shell explanation...I bought a car

Will try and make this a nut shell explanation...I bought a car that was posted as in good condition, ready to drive away. My friend was sent to purchase for me because I was out of town. Shes car clueless, fyi...he gives her a already signed title, nothing else filled out and not his name. I get people title jump all the time to save paying taxes. Once I got the car 2 days later, I was already prepared to put a few hundred extra dollars in all around minor work. 2006 accord. I drove it for 1 day and knew something more than minor was going on. I had it towed to my mechanic which was an hour away. In a nut shell...professional mechanic, with good ratings, deemed the car unsafe to drive with a list or horrible scary things wrong with it. Basically the car was totalled somewhere along the way. Mind you the title was last signed in 2015. I have been in contact with the seller who was leaving to go out of the country..happens to be asst. coach for usa olympic handball team. He stated he would buy the car back when he returned in 3 weeks. his return was yesterday. Im going to give him significant amout of time to adjust but I want to prepare for if he does not keep his word. Small claim? Mediation? Its only $2100 This is a private seller who seemingly buys and sells cars because he sold total of 4 during the time I got mine
