Customer Question

Hi,
I aquired a car (swapped my car for one of theirs) from a garage. They advertised it as HPI clear. Now almost a year later i have a knock at my door from a barcalys dept collection saying there is finance on the car. Ive been as helpful as i can and cooperated in everyway.
Any advice on what i should be doing, where i stand legally?

Have you contacted the dealer/garage about this? Also, was the car new or used when you bought it?
