I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. You lied on the credit application and you want to know if you can be prosecuted criminally?

I not knowing used a credit profile number to purchase a vehicle not knowing it was illegal long story when I found I returned the car but they kept most of my down payment I just want to be sure everything is ok can they come back later and try to arrest me or put something on my credit.

Thanks
They could...that is, IF you knowingly provided wrong information on the credit application? That is a crime and the state can prosecute.

Now...if this was a mistake? That is not a crime...so if that is the case, it may be that the police do not even take the case.

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

I was told by a credit repair company that I can use this number until my credit is repaired they kept my down payment I was worried but they didn’t call the police my down payment was 4400 dollars and I returned the car.

I understand. And if this was a mistake, it is not a crime...so for that reason, I think you have no worries.

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.
