Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
The lien is void because it was procured by fraud. The title company can sue the person that forged your name for the money, but the car is yours.
My suggestion is to have a local attorney write a letter to the lender demanding that the vehicle be released, and if it refuses, you will have grounds to sue for the return of the car and also for damages associated with its improper holding of the vehicle.
