Good afternoon. You absolutely have a cause of action here; and to get action, you want to raise the stakes. . Send your seller a certified,return receipt requested letter detailing the history and demanding that they deliver you clean title or refund all your money within a shortspecified period of time. Inform him that if your demand is not timelycomplied with, you will have no choice but to file a suit against him for yourdamages. Be sure to specifically mention that you will be filing this claim notonly as a breach of contract case, but also as a deceptive trade practiceaction, which will entitle you not only to your damages, but also an additionalamount equal to 3 times that as punitive damages. That should provide plenty ofincentive to comply with your demands; but, if it does not, file your suit.
