Best Answer
RepossessionCall your local dispatching service for your law enforcement. The Repo man is required to report the repo immediately to them. You could also call the bank or company that has financed your loan.

In Illinois, we are required to report repossessions immediately to the police. In some cities, the police want to know BEFORE we repossess. So when you call your local P.D. to report your car stolen, they can let you know if the car has been repossessed.
