Debt Collection

Asked almost 6 years ago - Ephrata, WA

In 2003 I bought a truck from Ford. In 2005 I lost my job and could not afford it anymore so instead of having it repossed I turned it in myself. Thought I was doing the right thing. Then I was sued by Ford Motor credit. I went to court and signed a judgement against me for around $16,000. This happened in Missouri.
What I need to know is if they eventually sold this truck and were still getting payed by me is it legal to recieve 2 payments for the same vechile or would I just be liable for the difference

    Answered . The procedure in repo of cars is very specific and a violation of the law could help you against the creditor. See a consumer lawyer in your area. I do not practice law in your state.
