.. if I'm training call center agents, and they look on your file and it shows that a repo has already been scheduled.... then, they better not let you know that!
Assuming you are past the point of no return, then tipping off the repo-ee that you are on the way, just wouldn't be too bright. That might have been the case here. It was already too late, and they had to keep mum about it.
just throwing that out there..

I'm not sure, the memory is going fast, but I think dhamlett has been in here in the past with his credit problems.
I'm not going to jump on him while he is down, but if I'm right in my rememberances, he seems to have long-term ongoing financial problems.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't think that that kind of speculation is helpful or appropriate.

I don't believe you are but the right course of action would be to contact a host by email rather than going off topic in the Forums.

That sounds logical. However, I think it'd be nicer if they'd somehow put him off instead of making what seemed to be a deal. "Let me discuss that with my manager and we'll have someone call you back." That way, the person doesn't hang up with a feeling that anything's been resolved.

...on a car note, I'd go out of my way to find the money to pay it off! It's like you flushed anywhere from 31 to 55 months of payments down the toilet only to have the finance company repo it after all that effort. I forget what kind of Honda he said he had, but I'm sure the car had a lot more than five years lifespan. He could've at least not worried about a car payment for a while when he got the rest of his financial house in order.
As for swearing off Honda, I doubt very much he'd be dealing with AHF in the near future. He could still buy a Honda, but he'd either have to pay cash for it or go the sleazy subprime route with their usurious rates. Sad how unemployment can upend one's life!

Clicking on his member name, I see he became a member the same day as he posted, and has one post. So, he obviously is not the person I was 'remembering'.

Looks like he was here to vent. Looks like a one and done post.
