Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy litigation attorney here to assist you.

If the vehicle does not have a title, you should refuse to purchase it because you would not be able to get a tag or insurance without a title.

Also, if the person is in bankruptcy, he cannot sell any property without approval of the bankruptcy court. Thus, this entire thing sounds very fishy.
