ANY claim about anything is subject to have to be proved. Sooo, get some sort of proof and contact the LENDER ASAP. Got any pics of the car the day before repo? Any reciepts from the week before when you had that repaired or noted that it didnt need repair? Anything like that? Do not waste your time contacting the lender instead sue the lender and the repo moron for the damages.

You just paid what they said you were behind on and they Repo it anyway with no notice?

Notice is not necessary in all state prior to repossession. In fact it is not necessary in most states. If you have paid current on the loan, and the repossession occurred anyway, this is likely a communication lag between the lender and the repossession company. It happens often. Contact your lender and explain what happened. Be patient and polite--they are not required to return the vehicle. They likely will because they want your money not the car. Ask the lender how you can get your vehicle back. Ask them who has your vehicle, and call that company to explain the vehicle was "wrongfully repossessed" and why. Again, be patient and polite--these people have your car.

What can you do if you bought a car from a person who is not licensed to sell cars and he repossessed it without notice?

Were you in DEFAULT of the contract the car was collateral for? If so, not much to do about the repo except pay up. Obviously, the "not licensed" part didnt bother you when you bought the car. Call a local attorney for state specific advice. In many states, notice of repossession is not required. The licensing of the seller is neither here nor there, because that does not affect the fact that you owe him a debt. There may be laws regarding your rights to reclaim the car after paying the back payments and costs of repossession.

Can you get your car back after reposession if you file bankruptcy?

While both home and automobiles are considered secure creditors, there are much less protections for automobiles. About the only way you would be able to obtain a court order for the assets return would be if it was recovered after your bankruptcy was filed and that both the creditor and repossession agency had sufficient notice of your filing. If it was recovered before your filing, or ability to provide sufficient notice, then its impossible to get the car back.

If vehicle is in repossession phase and you are pulled over will you go to jail for auto theft?

No. Not if the circumstances are as simple as stated. Repossession is a civil law procedure, not involving criminal law -UNLESS- the vehicle HAD already been re-possessed and you went and took it back from the repossession impound lot, or the repossession agent or the bank. If it had already been taken and impounded then, yes, you could be charged with auto theft.
