I hope this message finds you well, present circumstances excluded. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of practice experience handling matters of this nature. It is a pleasure to assist you today.
First off, I am sorry you are having to go through this issue. Here are some steps to take in the interim:
- Send in a certified letter with a return receipt with a written and notarized statement from you that you do not own a car and that you request that the registration of this vehicle be revoked. In the accompanying letter, leave your contact information and tell them to contact you with questions and to notify you when this request is processed;
- Send a letter notifying the NY Attorney General's Office of this issue and request assistance. Place copies of your letter and sworn statement to the registration office for their awareness;
- It appears that your identify has been stolen, so you also need to file a fraud report with the credit bureaus, which you can do online; and
- Just as a word of advice, when you send your letter to the registration office, make it to the attention of their legal office (you will have more success that way) - also make sure that all of your correspondence is sent certified with a return receipt.
If these entities do not help, you can file a petition with the superior court to have this registration revoked (all of the aforementioned correspondence will be great evidence to persuade the court to rule in your favor).
When you find out who has done this, I would report them to the police as well as to the FBI.
Let me know if you have any other questions or comments. Please rate my answer positively (three or more stars) so I can receive credit for my work.
