My ex had signed his name on a car I have paid for and still making payments on. I have the car in my possession purchased insurance and tag and other things needed on the car. He recently went to the dealership and told them to refuse payments from me. And they have. I have no clue what to do because if they don't accept my payments then the car will be repossessed. What should I do?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
