BitterSweet12 Posted November 23, 2011 Share Posted November 23, 2011 Right out of high school I had been dating the same guy since 10th grade...I thought everything was perfect! ( I was young and naive). He wanted a motorcycle but did not have the credit for it, so asked if i can purchase it under my name for I had fair credit at the time. It was approved and he said that he was going to make the monthly payments, which he did...(so I thought.) We broke up a few months after and decided to remain friends. I trusted him for keeping up with the payments and when I did ask he said that he was. (I know i was stupid for ending the relationship and not transferring over the name..but like i said I was young and stupid...i was only 20-21 at the time of purchase). So a few months pasted by and I received this call at work from a law firm stating that I owe 10,000 for the bike. ( at this point i was not aware of what was going on) The law firm stated that the bike was reposed a month back and that i needed to pay for the remaining balance. I was shocked and confused as i thought he still had the bike. I told the law firm that i did not have the money and i was not aware of what was going on because that bike belonged to my ex boyfriend but was under my name. ---- long story short...they kept calling and threatening me if i didn't pay that they would take me to court.. I asked for a copy of the contract and the paper saying that i owed that amount and for them to mail it to me before I agree to pay anything. ( i didn't receive any mail from them.)( I purchased the bike in 07-08 and I believe it was reposed in 09. They contacted me in 2010. so Saturday night I opened the front door, and I was served by the same law firm that contacted me a while back. They're suing me for the bike at 10g. I'm so lost and confused. I went to speak to an attorney for a quote and in order for her to take over my case it would cost me 2g. (keep in mind that I am a part time student and part time worker...working less than 20 hours a week). so at this moment I am screwed! the attorney said that most likely I would have to file for bankruptcy. I contact the ex boyfriend and hes being a total jerk saying that "its not his problem and to leave him alone!". which pissed me off! I want to know if there's anyway for me to take my ex-boyfriend down! (the thing is i don't have any written contact from him saying that he was going to pay, just a verbal agreement at the time). ***I know that this is a lesson learn so pls don't rub that in... I know I shouldn't have signed the contract even if i was in love...I know what I shouldn't have done...but it has back fired and all I'm asking for is support. Please if you have any idea of a way for me to settle this please pleaseee help me. Thank you so much! Link to comment
