Woman’s car repossessed even though it was fully paid off

November 10, 2010 by Todd Murray · Leave a Comment 

Your lender has the right to repossess your car if you’re in default by not making your payments. Of course, before your lender can exercise their right to repossession, you have to actually be, you know, in default.

Apparently, Wells Fargo never got this memo. They repossessed a Tacoma, Washington woman’s 1999 Chrysler LHS even though she had paid the car off in full and had clear title to the vehicle. Only after the local news station’s investigative reporting team got involved, did Wells Fargo admit its mistake and return Newton’s car.

If  you live in Minnesota and your car has been repossessed even though you’ve paid it in full, feel free to contact me for a free consultation.
