I am not sure what you mean by "signed for her to have enough credit". Did you actually Co-sign the loan documents, or just verify that she had employment?
Good morning. I'm sorry to hear that you are in such a predicament. It's the old story , where you try to help someone and it backfires. If the car is repossessed you may or may not be given an opportunity to pay off the loan and recover the car. If you and she are sued by the finance company after a default, You will have the right to file a cross claim against her for both damages and possession, i.e. title to the automobile so that you can recover it from the finance company. There is some complicated state law involved as to whether or not you are a guarantor or a principal borrower which I will not go into here. You can always super directly for the embezzlement of funds, which is a separate and distinct matter from the car payments. Such a suit would give you the opportunity to try to negotiate a settlement of the car issue before the bank or finance company moves in. I wish you good luck in getting the matter resolved favorably, and happy Thanksgiving!
