I had a car, got behind on payments and dodged the finance company until they got the repo man to find me. He came to get the car, I gave him the keys, didn\’t make a fuss or get the police involved. This happened a year ago, now there is a collection agency asking for money for the finance company. I thought in Alberta there was a seize or sue law. They can\’t do both or can they? He collection agency emailed me saying I had 3 days to contact them regarding this. I emailed right back and told them I understood there is a seize or sue law and asked what money amount they want to collect and for what purpose. They replied and told me the amount but not why the amount exists. Am I covered under the seize or sue law in Alberta in this case, what should I tell the collection agency? Do I need to prepare for litigation or do I have a leg to stand on?
