Where this should go I dont know but I dont really want to post in the main forum in the event assholes want to take advantage of the situation and be dipshits about it, if it belongs somewhere else mods feel free to move. 5/1/2002 my grandma purchased a car in a years time the car broke down and needed major repair. What all has been done to the car is speculation at this point but we were under the impression the car was getting a new engine replaced, but we think it was not replaced but rebuilt instead. The charges inolved I am still unaware of but have found to receipts amounting to 2000 down and another for a couple hundred for a intake manifold. The 2000 down for repairs lists a new engine being installed. There was 1600 more owed. Anyway she didnt have the money to finish repairs and the car sat at the garage for over two years. Six months ago her and my mom had drove past there and claimed they had seen the car still setting there. The original terms is the man who was repairing the car said he will keep it on lot till someone ca post the money left owed for repairs. Four months ago she stop paying on the car because she felt there was nothing more she could for it, she could not come up with the money to repair the car. The car was eventually up for resposession and this is where the problem is. Repo guy went down to get the car but said he did not find it there. A litigation officer was brought in to find out what happened to the car. The garage claims they have no record of the car being there so it is obvious to me their not playing fair here. I gave the repo man a copy of these two receipts, what they will do from this point on I have no idea. Garage may be lieing or they could have just gotten rid of the car for money owed, who really knows. The financial bank wants the car thats pretty much all they are interested in but since no one can find the car... Now repo people I have experience with they are not in your favor, only the banks interest so they dont have to offer any help or advice, the litigation officer made a remark that if the car is not found that the local sheriff will be by to talk to her and possibly pick her up and placed in jail. The guy who I gave the receipts to said he would contact us after they have more information I guess but I highly doubt that. My question mainly here is I think I should seek an attourney and go from there, but what kind fo an attourney do I need to hire? I think it would be best to hire legal help in the event this goes sour. Any advice would be great.
