You should report it as soon as you know your car was stolen. There is no statute of limitation to report a theft. However, a delay would cast doubt on the veracity of your story.
I would not benefit the person if It was stolen in the first place.
Call customer service
Why would they report it stolen?? IF it was stolen from you, then YOU would report it stolen. The lender loaned MONEY so they will recover money(garnishment, leins, ect.) if the collateral disappears. They will eventually find where you are working and you will pay for not only the car but court fees. Do yourself a favor and give the car up it's not yours.
The only way that can be a bad thing is if the car is stolen. You would have had to report it stolen prior to the ticket or accident.
Assuming the stolen car was insured, the stolen cars insurance would be responsible. If the stolen car was not insured, the driver, if located would be responsible. If not located then the owner would probably be held responsible. Hopefully the struck vehicle is insured for "uninsured motorist" coverage. Filing the report after the accident would document the theft, but not neccesarily clear the owner of responsibility.
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.
i would report it stolen. if the payments are made the loan company can and probably will come after you for the money. If you report it stolen to the cops you can at least report it to the insurance company and the loan company and that should remove your responsibility.
If you got a call and your car was in anoter state then if you wanted it back then you would have to go to that state and get it back usually at an impound lot.
Just like you regularly would file a police report. They can track the phone and see who has it or where it is.
I would get that stolen motorbike to the proper authorities ASAP and try to keep myself out of a heap of trouble!
If any of us knew that, we would report it to Authority. (It has not been recovered).
