    I was fresh out of school, young and dumb, and went to one of those "buy here" "pay here" auto dealers. Well, I put $1000 down and got the car, but I only had the car a month when crap started going wrong with it. I took the car up there and told them the were'nt getting crap until they fixed it. They gave me the run around and never set up a time for me to bring it in. In return, they got no mulla. A month later, the came and got the car and stamped the repo on my credit report from TU and EQ. Here's the was a 1994 Honda Prelude with 100,000 miles on it (when I bought it) and they listed the most owed as $18,553 and there is no balance. It shows they opened the account on 5/2000 when I got it and closed it on 2/2001 (still confused about that one). Is there any way I can get that removed? I was never contacted by the company and I'm sure the car has been sold. Am I just going to have to let it sit there smiling on my credit or do I have options?

    I would try the "Not mine" approach and see if you can get it deleted.

    The simplest approach is the best "not mine". But, if that doesn't work, start researching your state's repo laws. There are a series of steps they have to follow. Many, many years ago, while in high school I worked at a tote the note lot. We never followed the rules :)

    I would almost bet you that car title was never for one moment transferred into your name.
