Only if someone stole it from the owner. Otherwise the car is just repossesed by the finance company.

Only if the car was actually stolen. Nonpayment isn't theft (a criminal matter), it's a civil matter.

If your car is stolen you should automatically have reported and what time it had gone missing.

Absolutely, if their car is not returned when stated in the rental agreement, the car is and will be reported stolen.

NOT unless it was stolen. Stolen cars are reported stolen. Cars securing a loan in DEFAULT are reported as DELINQUENT to the credit bureau. If you choose to report the car stolen, go ahead. I would not reccommend it though. Filing a false police report is illegal in most jurisdictions.

It gets reported stolen.

Only you, if the car is in your name, can report it stolen. So they are jacking you up to get their payments

No.Another View: The police may retain any items found in the car pending proof that they actually are your property.REMEMBER: The car was reported stolen... and then it was recovered and impounded. The perpetrators MAY have used the vehicle during a crime spree and stashed their stolen goods in the car. The owner of the stolen vehicle would not be the beneficiary of the stolen goods just because they were in his vehicle. and they may have to present proof that the items found in the car actually belong to them.

Yes, because the dealer sold it to you its rightfully yours.

If one receives a stolen or recovered car in a UK dealership, the best thing to do is to report it to authorities. If not reported, one can receive sentencing for driving a bought car that was actually stolen.

The tow/repossession company has to notify the police of the repossession so the car can't be reported stolen..

IF the car was stolen, reported as stolen to the cops, the ins. should be paying the loan off. IF the ins. co. does not think the car is stolen, they wont pay and its as if the car was NOT stolen. So, you have to pay notes and insurance on the collateral. Bottom line??? HELP the ins. prove it was stolen and the problem will go away. MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Yes. If the person who is on the lease actively attempts to leave the state or region of the country AND it is proven they attempted to HIDE the vehicle, then some states allow the owner of the asset to declare it as stolen and it may be on the BOLO list for police in your new local area.

If a finnancing reposesor has takin the car, and it was stolen from him. it would be listed as a stolen vehicle by the local police. when found would be immediately towed and impounded. until the "OWNER" of the car retrieves it.. Wich means the bank, or financing company that the car was bought from.

only the registered owner of the vehicle can report it stolen. If the kid took off with the parent's car, it is still not stolen...it's considered "taken without permission" because it is known who has the car. this can also be reported to the pd.

You cant report car stolen after being repoed, because the police have on file the vehicle as a repo. Once the vehicle is picked up it is reported so the authorities don't go out looking for a vehicle that hasn't been stolen.

Call the records department of the Police Dept where the crime occured.

It was a mistake to purchase a vehicle in Ohio that did not come with a title. Ohio vehicle owners can easily replace lost titles. Since this wasn't done, it can only be assumed that you purchased a vehicle that may have been stolen in some way (stolen & reported, stolen & not reported, or a self assembled car that was never inspected by the Ohio Highway Patrol)

They can fight it but unless the vehicle was reported stolen, there is little hope of success, essentially none.

how to find my stolen car when i have the thiefs name Call the police.

No! If this is a threat by the finance company contact a attorney. He/She will advise you what you need to do.

Your credit card will be maxed out. Even forced charged, you will receive demand letters and repo companies will be looking for the car, then the car would be reported stolen.

You will need to contact your local police agency for information. Generally a car that is towed (for any reason) must be reported to the local police to prevent stolen car reports.
