Ok. Thanks.
You could sue the guy for conversion and civil fraud for taking something that he was supposed to purchase for you and then withheld the title and then placed it in his name instead of yours (conversion).
Expert:  Roger replied 11 months ago.
You can seek a court order directing him to sign the title over to you per your agreement.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

How do i go about that? Alot of people we know knew that was the agreement between him and i. I'm looking for the messages between us about it

Expert:  Roger replied 11 months ago.
You can go to your small claims court and ask the court to help you fill out papers against this person for civil conversion and fraud.
Expert:  Roger replied 11 months ago.
All of these people and any written memorialization can be used to prove your position.
