wrongful repo

so here is how i spent 1 hour of my night.................. i was up watching tv bout 1 am, when i see an f-450 pull up infront of my house, so i kill the tv and watch. they start to back in to my driveway so i went and got my .50 cal desert eagle and went out to greet them. now keep in mind my gun was not visable i had it on my waste line behind me, so i kindly walk up to the man and say "can i help u?" he then says yes sir we are here to repo your car for deliquent payment...........i paid for my car in full with cash that had saved from selling my bike. so i explaned to him that the car was paid for and that i had documentation let me go get it, he said ok. so i come back out and they have my car hooked to this truck and they were putting the truck in gear and were in the process of driveing away. so here i am standing in my driveway now aiming my 50 with one hand and holding my pink slip in the other, but they kept driveing and i didnt want to shoot them or their truck cause i know i was in the right and didnt want to go to jail. so the next morning i looked up the company that was writen on the side of the truck and go tthe address, and drove my truck down to the repo lot with my pink slip and asked for my car back. they said that i had to call my bank and clear it with them. at this time i placed the pink slip on her desk with proof of insurance and said what the hell does the bank have to do with this? she turned white as a ghost, knowing that they had taken my car for no reason which correct me if im wrong is theft. so i called my lawyer and he said that i could sue them for up to 10,000 dollars for mental distress, insted i told them that i wouldnt sue if they cut me a check for 500 dollars and tow my car back to my house and put it bck under my carport. so they did and i got a letter today from the owner of the company saying that they were very sorry for the mishap. i called and asked why they did it and the man said they were supposed to read the vin but they didnt they just knew it was a red focus...........the lady across the sterrt has a red focus but she keeps it in a closed garage so all they saw was mine

lol

Oh snap!

that would definitely ruin my day... but $500 would balance that out.

Still sucks though.

I would have confronted them with my .45 too. They wouldn't have left the driveway until a squad car got there and cleared it all up. I would have taken them to court for the $10k... but $500 isn't bad either. If they would have only done their job right and checked the vin... Some real winners there!

Its probably just as good that you didn't show them your gun at first, a lot of repo guys are typically armed, and if the police show up they're not going to be on your side. Personally, I couldn't have cared less about the money, I would've gone to the state and reported them. They don't screw around with stuff like that, they could've had their license revoked and/or faced some stiff 6-figure fines for a stunt like that.
