Now HPG claims upon checking the records, the car is still encumbered with Union bank, my father's CR did not indicate that. The car has no HPG or LTO alerts. My father acquired this from a person who does buy and sell and processed all the paper works for him. The person is dead, so he cannot be contacted anymore for clarification. My father presented the documents such as the Mitsubishi sales invoice from the original owner, deed of sale and the ID of the original owner. HPG is claiming that they "apparently" have checked the address of the original owner and she does not live there anymore. HPG is now claiming that my father have falsified documents to acquire the car when in fact he could have been a victim (of the buy and seller) or this may be an illegal activity being done by HPG. They were even telling him ignorance of the law is not an excuse trying to scare him, when clearly this is not an ignorance of the law case. There is no writ from the bank to reposes the car. HPG said they will just declare it as abandoned, and clearly it's not abandoned because he's claiming for it. So I'm not sure what they are doing is some sort of carnapping modus operandi from the inside or what. We can't chase down the seller anymore for clarification so there's really no way for us to know if what they are claiming is true. What next steps should we take or what legal actions can we take?
Thank you in advance!
