    How many days have passed from the date of the sale?

    Was your title and paperwork in order on the date of the sale?

    Was sold 7th of April. Called yesterday and was told check must have been lost in mail. Sent via FedEx. Yes I'm in good standing with paperwork and payments.

    Did you use the tracking number to verify the dealer's claim?

    Did you request a replacement check?

    Did you ask if you could appear in person to receive the replacement check?

    Who are you communicating with at the dealership?

    You might need to make an in person appointment with a higher level muckity muck.

    Just called and he said an overnight check was/is being sent to the bank. I did mention a tracking number but he didn't acknowledge it. No I didn't ask to appear in person to receive the check. His title is 'Acquisitions Manager'. Thanks for responding

    You'll be okay now that you've created a record.

    I presume the dealership is reputable, so they'll get it sorted.

    I bought two new cars in September.
    Similar situation as yours, a phone call got it sorted.

    Great - glad it worked out. I do believe you were stressed over nothing though.

    Sometimes it takes putting somebody's feet to the fire to get things done.
