The check came, 2 days after I fired off that email. Or 2 days after I got the response. Either way, hehe, yippee!
For your entertainment pleasure, here is THE most Assinine Thing of the Week:
I come home today to a letter from Key Bank. Hrrph? I don’t have dealings with Key Bank. My car loan is through Toyota Financial. Open it up and read it. Because a loan hasn’t been paid in a long time, they are making no effort to collect it.
What loan, you ask? The loan my father had on his boat! Yes, I speak of a mess that happened in…wait for it…1996.
He bought a boat before he died. After he died, wtf am I supposed to do with a boat? Not wanting to deal with it (it was stored at Gabrys), I continued paying on the loan. That was for maybe a year and a half? Before I found out, LO, Gabry sold the boat. Did he tell me? Nope. Did he tell the people he sold it to that there was a lien on it? Nope. In short, it was a highly illegal, bag-of-dicks move, and I only got pulled in when he realized he would HAVE to deal with me if he wanted the title and registration. It escalated until finally, I met the buyers. He sold the boat in October. I found out, and this all came to light, in April, since the buyers were looking to get ready to put her in the water. How did I meet the buyers, you ask?
Their lawyer was my lawyer’s son. Oh, provenance! HAHA.
Again, I’ll shorten it. I gave the State Police a 4-page deposition. The guy was brought up on 14 counts, across multiple states (he did this to other people). I never got a dime, because I was too far down on a massive list of creditors, but my lawyer did send a letter in the attempt, and we notified the Attorney General. Thing is, while this was going on, I was dealing with someone at Key Bank, explaining all of it, and HE forgave the loan.
So….I found it amusing. Key Bank isn’t looking for anything (and I called to be sure), and the girl told me they sent out a ton of those letters. Dude, really? Glad they got nothing more productive to do than notify people that their 20-year old loans are forgiven.
GOSH THANKS YOU GUYS!
There. Happy weekend, warm loving weather coming soon!
