    Repo man?

    A man came to a home Wednesday and told the resident that he had to repossess his 1999 Chevrolet Blazer, a Wayne County sheriff's report said.

    The report said the resident, Linwood ***** of Long Henry Grady Road, Seven Springs, told the man that he owed nothing on the truck.

    Linwood then told deputies that the "repo man" identified himself as working with a company in Seven Springs.

    The man then took the Blazer, valued at $14,000, and fled. Linwood said he called the company the man named and was told they knew nothing about the vehicle or the "repo man."

    Well the loop hole i found is that the repo guy cannot legally take the vehicle if it is parked on your property and you are disputing the cause,you have to stop him though, but in the case you are referring to, thats just messed up.

    Doesn't the repo man have to show a piece of paper (court order ?) proving that it's a legitimate repo? The guy who KNEW he owed nothing on the truck is an idiot for letting the imposter drive off with his truck!! LOL !! /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    I went through this once with a repo guy, i didn't let him take the truck, he was pissed, he called the cops out, and they told him that there was nothing they could do, i was disputing the deal. He wasn't too happy, and needless to say, i had to park the ride in the back yard for awhile until things calmed down and i got everything straightened out.

    ... I think they can take it if it's on your roof - if they so desire ... point being - it doesn't matter where it is - if they find it - they'll take it. Check your local laws though. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Well thay can take it, but the thing i found out here is if they pass the front door with announcing they are there, they are legally trespassing, and again, you have to be there to dispute them taking it before they can not legally take it, if your not home,,,,it's gone, the other thing is if they already have it hooked,,,it's gone.

    Some of these repo guys also try to use threatening manners and ways to force you to give it up, you just have to be strong with them back. Let them know it's in dispute and tell then to try another time, by then the vehicle is hidden or whatever. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    In TX it is legal to shoot to kill someone, once you have told them to get off your property and they will not comply...needless to say there aren't many cars repoed here the way they(cars) are in other states... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    That is the real key right there, just don't get behind.

    Why would the Deputies have to answer some questions? Looks to me like the guy had his truck ripped off, called the Sheriff to make a report, which they did. It doesn't say that the Deputy accompanied the repo guy and condoned the theft.

    Its kinda like AFLAC , but for vehicle loans. We have it on the Impala. If we get laid off or whatever we are covered for a certain amount of time so we can find work again. When I picked the Blazer up at the Buy-Here-Pay-Here, they didn't offer it there either. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    we had a guy here at work who had his repo'd, the guard tried to stop him, but the repo guy flew in, backed up to the car, pulled out one of our gates that opened automatically with the front wheels dragging /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif, it was front wheel drive /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif. seems he had been watching for several days and knew the gate opened auto.
