Hi! My name is Tonya and I put a down payment on a car from a buy here pay here in Atlanta, GA for 595.00 back on the 8th of july 2006. I have been making payments of 162.50 every two weeks. All of a sudden in August, when the company claimed to be under new management these new workers along with a few old stated to me that their computers and papers were stolen and they had no records of any payments that I made since I bought the car and that I was behind 9oo something dollars and would have to pay my payments over. i stated to them that I keep my receipts for myself and that they should have printed out their own copies. I brought in my receipts that I had along with my payment that was due on yesterday Oct 2 for my saturday payment. I have every receipt except for one at the end of May but I have the beginning of May and the 12th of June. At the bottom of the statements it tells what was paid on that date and what was due at the next payment. I asked them could they look at the one before and after to see that it was paid because if a payment was missed it would have showed it in my balance. They said they need the receipt for that exact date or 241.00 that thy were showing was owed or give them the keys to the car. I don't see how they can just repo the car like that. Can they? Yes, the contract does say that they can take the car if no payments are made or not paid in ful but my concern is if it wasn't paid why did that wait all the way until now to take the car. I was told by the police that it is a civil matter and I can take them to court because when I asked if they had any copies of the money orders to show that I paid they said they needed my receipt. Also, I called the bank that the money was suppose to be paid to ant they told me that the money goes to their banks and not to the so I asked why am I making out my money orders to your company if they arent coming to you I was told that I would be called back when they found out something. Nonetheless, they have this box on the car that you have o put the code in that hey give you to keep the car running and if you miss a payment the car won't crank so I asked them, "how am I still riding if I missed a payment in May and here it is Oct. They had no answer. So since they wouldn't look at my receipt before and after May 26 I had to leave the car with them according to the police and I told the people at the delearship I will be taking them to court and they want to begin to ask if I plan on coming back to get the car and if I was they would keep it for me and do nothing with it. Do I have a case? Can I sue? Is this legal? I just need some answers this is my first car and I don't know what to do!
