Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
If I may ask, how can you be sure that this car wasn't purchased? I ask because the person does not have to purchase the vehicle directly. Also, when was this purchase dated?

Thank you for your follow-up.
CHP has a duty to review documentation as well as double-check VIN numbers as far as whether or not the vehicle was stolen, or when it was sold. You can provide them with a copy of your own title work as proof of ownership, and likewise you can provide evidence of fraud. If the police somehow believe this person you can also file suit directly for fraud and also for 'conversion' (theft) of your personal property.
Sincerely,
Dimitry, Esq.
