I CANT AFFORD TO KEEP PAYING AND STILL HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO GET MY CAR OUT OF INPOUND
Consumer Protection Lawyer: DanLegal, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

unfortunately from everything you have told me - you do not have a legal right to the car. If she still has the title and has not written it over to you - there is nothing you can do to get the car

Even if she said she would send me the tittle and the money order proves there was an agreement by her cashing the money order that clearly states that we had an agrement
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Yeah well it doesn't loak like you would do me any justice if I did talk to you in person anyway I have got alot of time and work into this vehicle she gave it to her dad when it needed a lot of work but me being a mechanic I put new head gaskets one it and started driving it then all of a sudden it wasn't her dad's to sell and she wanted it back that is when she agreed to give me thenough tittle if I sent 200 hundred dollars and payed a ticket
Consumer Protection Lawyer: DanLegal, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

Here is what I would recommend doing - I would bring copies of any and all communications you have had with the woman and file a small claims action against her. In the small claims case you can sue her for the money for the car - or negotiate it to where she will actually give you the car. When you win, you will also be able to get attorney's fees reimbursed by her. So I would recommend speaking to a civil attorney in your area to help you with this.

For sure save a copy of the money order and any and all expenses you have incurred concerning this vehicle. That is the only way you can get the car. If you want to go down the criminal path, you can file a criminal complaint against her with your local police department because she took the $200.00 from you and that is theft.

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.
