Question 1 Year after buyback VWoA claims they didn't get my title

So a year later after my completed buyback for my TDI I received a letter FedEx'ed to me this past Friday (2/8/18) saying that they never got my title from me during the buyback appointment. I did indeed return the title on the day of my buyback appointment, otherwise I would never have received the restitution money!! Anyone have this happen to them??
I called the TDI 800 number and the person I spoke to told me to ignore it but keep the business reply envelope just in case. The lady then asked if I was will to send them a new one? I told them I could if they reimbursed me the $25 Connecticut DMV charges to have a title reprinted.

Well, they're pretty clearly not stating that you didn't give them the title. They are simply asking you to confirm at the end of the letter that you did. Some office functionary probably misplaced it. Your money's in the bank, not your problem now anyway.

Simple.......just check the box next to I turned my title in when I returned my vehicle in the FedX prepaid envelope and forget about it. Or do nothing. I don't see any crisis here.

Agree 100%

The letter even has an option to tell them that you DID send it in to them. They will probably use this letter to get a new title "lost" title and thats it.

No it was a clean title with no lien. I just assume since I signed power of attorney to them they can dig up their own title

What does "Power of Attorney" have to do with it? This was not your car? As I said before just check the box and send it back. Why are you asking these questions here? Is there something shady going on and you are looking for legal advice here?

Well, let's hope you didn't spend the money yet.

Alternatively you could also put a check mark in that first box, and send the letter back, but it doesn't sound like that's your style...

This just demonstrates the validity of VW's incompetence.

Would relish the opportunity to tell them to pound sand. Probably the only time their incompetence has ever hurt them rather than the plaintiffs.

Just wanted to post that I got the same letter, and I know I provided them a clean, no lienholder CA title. Money was already spent on another VW product that they can gladly take back, if they have any disputes about who owns what and what paperwork I gave them.
