  2. I am going through restoring my credit, I have an old repo from Nissan that is due to fall off August 2013. They keep showing account last date of activity Dec 2012. Now the old address has been removed from this account several months ago. Now my problem is I just recently received a letter from Portfolio Account (they just purchased the debt) the letter states: "Unless you notify this office within 30 days after receiving this notice that you dispute the validity of this debt or any portion thereof, this office will assume this debt is valid. If you notify this office in writing within 30 days of receiving this notice that you dispute the validity of the this debt or any portion thereof, this office will obtain verification of the debt or obtain a copy of a judgement and mail you a copy of such judgement or verification. If you request this office in writing within 30 days after receiving this notice, this office will provide you the the name and address of the original creditor if different from the current creditor" Please help and advise what this means. I have come so far on repairing my credit. Thank you
  3. Hi Forum, Here is my issue, I currently have a car that i've been paying $886 a month on since 2008. During this time, i have been paying on time with no lates until i was laid off in 09. I had a couple of lates until i was able to get a new job and back on track also in 09. In 2011, i was laid off again and this time i was out of work until the summer of 2012. So currently i have a bunch of lates on my report, the car has 130K miles on it and the payoff is around 25K. The new job i have has a lower salary and i can't afford to make the $886 payments anymore, i can't refinance because of the high mileage. So I am wondering if i should run out and try to get another car and let them repo my current car or should i file a BK Ch.13 and get the payments reduce and pay it off. I file a BK back in 03 and its not on my credit anymore, other than the lates, i have two CC that i've been paying on time since i had them. I think my scores are around 575 - low 600s. I also have a repo on my report from 05 that i've been trying to get off, the SOL has ran out and they still are on my report. So I am not sure what to do here, i know either way my credit will take a hit. My question is, which is worse... thanks
  4. I have 2 charge offs previous repos that are due to fall off in June 2013 and November 2013. My question to you all ...is should I dispute as obsolete early and should I dispute by mail or online. Are there any sample letters out there that I can use as a base? I've read a couple post about tradelines being deleted early just not sure which direction to take. These have been hanging over my head for the past few years and I'm ready to start fresh.

    Bummed. Setback

    Hi CB, I'm in the process of repairing my credit and trying to handle my finances like a big girl and stop hiding my head in the sand. I started triaging my reports and preparing my first set of dispute letters to the CRA's but... I went to warm up my car this morning and it was gone... I'm 30 days late on my note. I called my finance company last week Wednesday to explain to them that I was having an issue with my check (Payroll said that I didn't hand in my time sheets but I did) and that once it was straitened out that I would catch up. I was expecting to be paid on Friday but I wasn't. To the defense of the finance company, this is the 4th time they took the car back. I have 6 months left on the loan. I filed my taxes and my plan was to pay them off once I received my return and then trade the car in with some additional cash and buy a newer car. In other circumstances, I would just pay them and keep the car until the wheels fall off. That plan will no longer works because I am driving a lot more and the car is old and the mileage is high. That was ok in the beginning because I usually just drove on the weekends and I used to live much closer to work. Neither is the case now. And I was sick for a good part of 2012 with one illness after another and public transportation is no longer a long term viable option for me. I can catch up and get my car back before the weekend (Payroll is cutting me a check for half of my salary and my taxes was deposited into my checking account today by the IRS) I know, ironic right? What should I do? I'm going to have to pay my current fiance company either way. Should I pay and keep or pay and use it to buy something more reliable? (Did I mention that I think that the transmission is slipping?) SMH :cry2: LUV
  6. Hi, I hope I am posting in the correct area, this is my first day on this site! My situation: My father co-signed a credit union car loan for me in 2003, in 2004 I began to be late making payments and the car was repo'd late that year. I filed BK in 2005 and the car was included. Haven't heard anything since.....Until...... 6 months ago my poor mother got an intimidating phone call from some collection agency saying that if they didn't send them a payment they were going to start garnishing my father's wages. Unknowing and being intimidated, she sent them $100. and she has continued to pay $100 when she can. My question is, other than how is that legal for them to misrepresent and intimidate someone, were the SOL up on that debt?? How can they being collection again after so many years? My parents live in Colorado, that is where the loan was originated. This collection company is in Wyoming. Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks again.
  7. Hello, I am looking for advice on getting approved for an auto loan after a repo. My husband and I owned a minivan, financed through Ally Financial, which was repoed at the beginning of December last year. We fell behind on the payments because I have been laid off for over a year, with no luck finding another job, and my unemployment pay ran out in November. I was hoping we would be able to scrape up the money to pay off the past due amount, and get our van back before it was sold, but we couldn't do it. A family member was going to loan us the money to get it back, but he was unable to help us too, and our van ended up being sold at an auction on January 16th. It's been a nightmare for us since our van got repoed. My husband works 25 miles outside of the city, and has been taking 3 busses back and forth to work each way, every day. It takes him 2 1/2-3 hours to get to work, depending on the weather (we're in Ohio, and are having a bad winter here). He can't deal with it much longer. Not to mention that if his shift at work changes (which it does periodically - he works in a factory), and he has to be at work super early, like 6:30AM, there's no possible way he'll be able to make it to work. I've been depending on a neighbor to take me grocery shopping every couple of weeks, and I'm tired of having to ask for her for rides. I don't want to be a burden on anyone. We also have two kids, and not having a vehicle has been extremely hard on them as well, as they're having to ride a bus (public transportation - they don't qualify for school busses) back and forth to work every day in this nasty weather. In any case, we're in desperate need of a "new" vehicle, but keep running into brick walls. We applied for a loan through Roadloans/Santander/Drive a few weeks ago, just under my husband's name, as I have no income right now, and my credit is worse than his - his credit scores are in the high 400's/low 500's. We had a Chapter 7 bankruptcy discharged in 2004. We got approved for a down right awful loan - 25% interest, with $600 down, maximum 72 months, and $15,000 or less. We talked to a saleman at a dealership a few days ago, that's supposedly a participating dealership with Roadloans. He assured us that we would be able to purchase a vehicle, so we managed to get up to the dealership on Thursday evening. After spending 3 hours there, being told we could buy a particular vehicle, then being told that one wouldn't work (for vague reasons), and going back and forth with various vehicles, having the dealership run applications for us through various lenders, having them tell us that we would have to come up with at least $1,000 for a downpayment (instead of the $600 Roadloans told us), etc., we went home with no vehicle, and promises that we would have some sort of loan approval on Friday. It's now early Saturday evening, and the dealership is supposedly still working to see what we can get approved for. The saleman just says that they are trying to find a vehicle that will "work" with the loan parameters. Is it stupid of me to think that we might actually get approved for a loan? We're not looking for a brand new, $30,000 vehicle. We're looking for something $10,000 or less, that's reliable, not more than about 80,000 miles, not more than about 6 years old, and that has enough room for two adults and two older kids. We're not choosing about the type of vehicle or the make or model. Domestic, foreign, sedan, minivan, whatever. I just don't want a two door vehicle or a gas guzzling SUV. Basically we want something more affordable than the nearly $400 a month payments we had on our van (as it was a newer, certified preowned vehicle), and the interest rate was still rather high, at nearly 14%. When we bought the minivan in early 2011, I was also working full time, and we were in a better situation financially and credit wise than we are now. We also had a trade in then, a paid off minivan. I realize we have the repo and the terrible credit, but my husband has been at his job for over 5 years now, we've lived in our current (rental) house for 7 years, and we have sufficient income to afford a $250-$300 or so car loan payment. Also, my husband was able to work quite a bit of overtime last year when we did have a vehicle, and he can go back to working more overtime, if/when we get another one, which will boost our income a lot. I did read the many posts on Creditboards about Roadloans charging awful fees to dealers, that the dealers don't want to pay. I can understand that, but then why would a dealer agree to be a participating dealer with Roadloans in the first place then, if they don't want to eat the fees? If they can't help us, why not just be upfront with us and say so, instead of wasting any more of ours and their time? I'm sorry for rambling. I'm just frustrated, and am wondering if we have any hope of getting another vehicle. We don't have any savings to tap into to buy a car with cash, nor do we have any family members or friends who can help us out with money for a substantial down payment, or who could co sign for us. There's also no family or friends who can lend us a car, no one my husband can carpool with to and from work, and we can't even rent a car temporarily, as we don't have any credit cards. We could try a buy here pay here lot, maybe, but I'm afraid to go that route. Many years ago, before he established any credit, but desperately needed a vehicle, my husband got a car through a buy here pay here place, and the payments were about $300 a month for a very old car that needed a lot of work. I know he ended up paying way, way more than the car was worth. I figure even if we ended up with a horrible 25% interest rate on a decent vehicle, at least we could refinance elsewhere, after making a year or so of on time payments, and getting our credit cleaned up. We can't afford to wait a few more months, and save up money for a huge downpayment or to buy a car with cash. My husband is losing out on a ton of overtime at work (which is all on weekends, when the busses don't run by his job), and we have critical doctor's appointments, etc., which we've had to put off, as we don't have a vehicle. We need a vehicle pretty much right now. Am I kidding myself in thinking we might qualify for a halfway decent vehicle through a reputable dealer? Should I forget about Roadloans altogether? I'm afraid to try it at another dealer, for fear of the same results. I read here on Creditboards about some people having good luck using Roadloans at Carmax, but unfortunately there's no Carmax dealerships located any where remotely near where I live in Ohio. Any advice for us, from anyone who has bothered to read this very long post? Thanks in advance for any replies.
