Sorry, but strong arm tactics like this always end up affecting someone who does not see it coming--someone who does not deserve it. Would you like to be a mother with a child on a 90+ degree day who can't start her car to get home from the grocery because some other person named Mary Smith missed her car payment?

Actually -unless both Mary Smiths bought from the same lender - the same make and model, perhaps even the same VIN number - it's not likely that would happen.

The mistake I see happening is them not crediting your account for a payment made.
