If his name is XXXXX XXXXX title to the car, then he did not violate any criminal law. However, that does not mean that if you are paying the note he can keep taking your car or keep your car from you. If he refuses to return the car to you, then you are going to have to file suit against him for return of the vehicle. In addition to a suit against him to return the vehicle, you would also be able to file a complaint with the DA for loan
fraud, since using a fake social security number is XXXXX criminal offense.
These are the two recourses you have here to recover the vehicle. To work to get the loan company to remove him from the loan you would have to get a substitute co-signer or would have to qualify for the loan on your own.
