Complaint Compass *** my car loan. They reported a late payment to ******** for the month of february. Loan ************* **************************************************** *** 7/30/1965
Compass **** had my car note. the car was totalled in an accident in mid December. The insurance company mailed the total loss department the payoff on 1/17/2014. On 2/18/2014 i was told no payoff was recieved. i continued to make the car payment and made my last payment on 2/6/2014. I attempted to call the total loss department over the month of february over 50 times. No person ever answered the phone and i had to leave a message each time. I never received a call back, and still haven't
i contacted the insurance company and they reported to me the check was mailed to the total loss department on 1/17/2014. They requested bank records and several days later emailed me a copy of the cashed check. Compass ****** the check on 2/12/2014. That means they had the check sitting on a desk for over 3 weeks in the total loss department. I recieved my check from the inurance company on 1/19/2014, only 2 days after the date of 1/17/2014 (the issue date).
Finally, out of desperation I went to the local branch and asked the branch manger for help at the end of february. She told me the car now showed paid off with an amount due back to me of 796.95. She said it can sometimes take a little time for the total loss department to get the funds recorded to the note balance that she can see becasue the note is transferred to the total loss department when they were notified that the car was totaled.
On 3/23/2014 i called the branch manager and told her i never received the check for 796.95. She said she would take care of it and on 3/31/2014, more than a month after i was told compass ****** me the check and 2 and 1/2 months after the insurance company issed the payoff I received the check.
I was then notified by my credit surveillance subscription that Compass filed a late payment notice, 30 days late, for the month of february on my credit report. This is crazy.......I made a payment for a car that was totalled 50 days earlier on 2/6/2014 for 731.43 in order to make sure the payment was current until they got the payoff credited. They finally credited the payoff on 2/12/2014 that was mailed on 1/17/2014 from the insurance company. They then had to mail me a refund for 796.95 that included interest accrual from the the total loss date in December through 2/12/2014. Yet i did not even get the check until 45 days later.
After all of that they report me to the credit report bureau for a 30 day late payment in february, which simply is not the case.
Someone please help me. My many phone calls to compass have gone un-responded to.
