    I default on my loan from Title Max being 40 days late, I received no email or phone call nor a letter in mail stating I was risk for repossession My car was taken after calling for three days to find out how to return my car home the man at the store told me nothing he could do now out of his hands I had 10 days to pay 1400.00 before my car would go to auction. I then went about him to corporate she then told me I could reinstate and pay 578.00 to receive my car back when I went to the local store to pay it was a Friday he then told me after paying they were closed til Monday and I would have to make an appointment in order to pick my car up he also as we were leaving stated that he went ahead and had a key made but my car won’t start after my car sat another week due to it now does not run I had to pay to have it tow home Then had a mechanic look at my car to find out the anti theft has shut my whole car down due to them trying to use a copy key which was not calibrated with my car and my car computer read it was trying to be stole now my car is still sitting as it will cost more to bypass the theft system then the car is worth so my question is if I had 10 days until the car could be sold why was a key made for my 10 days were and who is responsible for my vehicle no longer working as they are still wanting me to pay off the remainder of the loan for a nonworking car that was in perfectly good shape when they towed it out of my driveway

    Only the person or person responsible for making the key would be able to answer that question.

    No one is responsible unless you can PROVE who did the dirty deed.

    If you have PROOF, your remedy would be to file a lawsuit in small claims and sue the alleged perpetrator(s).

    There is no law that would allow you to walk up to the perp or perps and say, "You owe me $1,000 for screwing up my car and you must pay be now under penalty of law."

    If you think this is is bad, people do far worse everyday and get away with it, including murder!

    Completely understand what you have stated I was trying to find the policy to have a better understanding of how long making a key is justifiable and someone has Documentation when and where the key was made and that will be my trip I just can’t find a policy rules statues regulations on how long they had I was told I had 10 days to pay for my car Before it would be sold I paid before my 10 days so I just don’t understand why a key would have been made when it was towed to an auction lot in sitting

    You'll have to ask the person who allegedly made the key.

    Know this, people lie regularly, and its highly unlikely you'll ever get an honest answer to your question.

    Even if you do find out who made the key, that doesn't prove who used the key damaging your vehicle.

    Read your loan contract. Your notice that you risk repossession is in there.

    As far as the key being made I doubt that there is any law prohibiting it.

    However, the damage done to your car is certainly something you can sue for.
