It is not uncommon to have a lender react this way after a bankruptcy filing. When you file a bankruptcy an automatic stay goes into effect, which means that creditors cannot continue in any collection efforts while the bankruptcy is ongoing.
In this situation you should request to speak directly to the bankruptcy or loss mitigation department. Then, you can explore your options such as whether you want to maintain payments, sign a reaffirmation agreement, seek a redemption (where you pay for the current value of the vehicle, not the remainder of the loan) or surrender the vehicle.
