I bought a car from a private seller and I wasn't able to check if there's any finance (car loan) on it at the time due to internet issues. The seller confirmed for me the car has no finance, and he wrote on the bill of sale there's no money owing. The finance company contacted me after I transferred the car to my name to tell me the car still has the full amount owing. I explained what happened and they have been trying to get in contact with the seller. I tried to contact him myself but number has been disconnected. The finance company called me 2 days later saying that they found new information, new contact number and new address. We both contacted him on the new information and he promised he will have the full amount paid immediately. The next day his number was disconnected and real estate agent confirmed that he left the address too. The finance company now wants to repossess the car I bought and leave me with nothing and I can't get hold of the seller.
