Peggy, the lender got a judgment against you for the Unpaid Balance after selling the car. That judgment becomes a sellable item. Agencys and attorneys and LARGE companys BUY the judgments before SOL runs out and tries to collect.However, some agencys try to collect even when its no longer possible. Verify that they are legit before you make any payment arrangemnets with them.
