My question involves bankruptcy in the state of: Illinois
I recently filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy (4/2012) and have already had the meeting of the creditors (6/1/2012) The bankruptcy has not yet been discharged.
Included in the bankruptcy was a furniture store loan.
This past week, the furniture loan company called my job asking to speak to me. When I answered, the man stated they knew about the meeting of creditors meeting and did I receive the reaffirmation letter in the mail. I stated no and that I do not plan on signing any reaffirmation letter. He asked "well do you want us to come get the furniture?" That is when I hung up.
After looking at my online profile with that company, I noticed my work number is the only number listed on my account. It is however reflected as a "work" number and the "home" and "cell" number area is blank.
I realize they have a right to repo the furniture because there is still a lien attached to the stuff. But, aren't they supposed to wait until after the bankruptcy is discharged? Also, was the company even allowed to call me regarding ANYTHING because of the automatic stay?
Thanks in advance for all your answers....
