    Your car was on finance when it was written off? The money should have gone to the finance company to clear / pay towards the debt. You can't just take the money and spend it on a different car.

    Which credit company have threatened you? The credit hire company? the car finance company? Or someone else?
    Mortgage started 2020, aiming to clear it in 2026.
