A 50-year-old man told New Canaan police that recently he was contacted by a collection agency about the repossession of a Chevrolet Silverado Truck that wasn't his.
A signature purporting to be his was used to co-sign a credit application for the truck at Karl Chevrolet on Elm Street.
New Canaan police gave this further account of the matter, which is still under investigation:
man said he knew the person who was driving the vehicle. In fact, the
man said, he had been working with a business in Stamford and had
introduced the co-owners to the owner of Karl Chevrolet because they
were interested in buying a vehicle for their business. The man had done
some work with the Stamford business from March 2012 to May 2013.
the man said he never signed the paper or authorized his signature in
any way. He told police he planned to help get the vehicle returned to
the dealership as the fastest and easiest way to protect his credit
