Consumer Complaint: Credit Acceptance Corporation ( XXXX ) failed to honor a reaffirmation on my auto loan following a XXXX bankruptcy filing ( dischargedXX/XX/XXXX ). I continued to pay {$310.00} to XXXX via automatic payments from my checking account without interruption. I later found XXXX had closed my account, and had not been reporting my timely payments to the Bureaus ( XXXX ). Between the time of the bankruptcy filing and my finding XXXX had not been counting and/or reporting my payments, I had paid them at total of {$1800.00}. Their report to the Credit Bureau reflects DFD/DLA of XX/XX/XXXX. I had absolutely NO default at this point, and had continued to make timely payments through XX/XX/XXXX. Following the discovery, I contacted XXXX and voluntarily surrendered the vehicle ; however, they are reporting it as an involuntary repossession. XXXX is now attempting to litigate against me in Civil claims court for the vehicle despite their having closed my account and kept my payments without reporting them.
