Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

.

If you gave them your number as a point of contact, then yes they can contact you on that number because they have a legitimate business reason for doing so..

.

But just so you know, they can repo a vehicle if you are even a day late on the payment.... they don't have to wait a month before doing so..

.

.

thanks

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
