I was "forced" to take a loan with Arcadia because my car crapped out and the local Ford dealer made arrangements(thanks guys)

I knew in advance interest was 28%( I even joked with the guy that credit cards were cheaper at 19%....) but I really had no choice...I needed a vehicle for work. I eventually filed bankruptcy several months later after trying for YEARS to repay several debts that wouldn't work with the credit help companies I tried. The auto was included in the bankruptcy.
fter it went through, Arcadia contacted me and "suggested" that I could continue to make "voluntary" payments, or give the car back. I have continued the payments for almost a year and a half. Now a close friend has offered to help me get another car(cosign or loan me the money direct) am I stuck with anything if I tell them they can "have their car?"
Any help would be appreciated greatly....

Rapid City, South Dakota

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Need More Information

AUTHOR: Amy - (U.S.A.)

Ok- I think I can help you out on this, but I need more information. As a former employee of Arcadia/TranSouth, and a current auto collector and bankruptcy filer, I think I know what I'm doing.

When you filed Bankruptcy, what chapter did you file? Did you reaffirm the auto or not?

If you did = then it is like no bankruptcy occured and you are obligated to make payments. If you want to give up the car, it goes on record as a reposession.

If you didnt- Technically you have no debt, thus Arcadia can take the car at any time. You need to speak w/ a bankruptcy specialist regarding this.

Hope this helps
