I paid my auto registration thru my bank's billpay service. I have done this for many years with no problems. My last check however, was never received by the DMV, therefore my CU recommended a stop payment. I called the DMV to verify that my check was never received and they confirmed. My CU stopped payment and I went to my local DMV to pay in person. When speaking to the representative at the DMV they searched the computer and told me that the check had just cleared. He issued my sticker and I was on my way. A few months later I received demand letters from the DMV along with fees and interest. I mailed payment without fees and interest and I called the DMV again. They told me to submit a letter from my bank stating an error and the fees and interest would be deducted and my case would be closed. I did just that but I am still receiving demand letters with threats of seizure and sale of my car and any other car I own. This is outrageous and I want the DMV to admit they are wrong and deduct the fees and interest off my record. I am a professional with an excellent credit rating. I always pay my bills on time and I am offended that the DMV is treating my like a criminal.
