Does the Car Lender Have a Right to Reposes My Car After I Made a Payment Through MoneyGram? – Abby

“Dear Steve,

I have been known to be late on car payments, but I do always make them,

I made my payment this am, through an automatic moneygram deal, and they repossessed my car that day. Did they have legal right to take it, after accepting my payment? and what do the fees to “redeem” cover, is it a penalty, or a guarantee of payment, since I have not been timely?



Dear Abby,

Did the payment you make bring your loan current and how many days were there between the time you made the MoneyGram payment and the time the car was repossessed?

I need more information to answer. Oh, and what state do you live in.
