Has this happened to you?
I donated my probe last September to charity. I signed off on all the paperwork and got my reciept from the charity. I mailed in the release of liability to the DMV and never heard anything after. I thought, no news is good news. I guess I thought too soon.
I got a notification in the mail yesterday from a tow company in another county in the Bay Area that they want $525 in tow and storage fees. Apparantly, the person who bought the car at auction had it towed, yet never registered it in their name. So the notice came to me, and the charity.
I checked with the DMV today and they have the release of liability on file, yet I'm still the registered owner? I was pretty sure the charity was since they filled in the pink slip and I signed off on it.
This is the first time I've ever donated a car, so if someone out there can chime in, please do.
