Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If there was no lien on the car, then Citi Financial should not have received the pink slip. First thing you need to do is contact Citi Financial and attempt to work this out with them. Citi at the very least should give you a letter stating they hold no lien (which you would need to get duplicate pink slip). Second step is contact the dealer you purchased from because they will be liable to you to assist in getting a duplicate title. If they refuse, you can file on your own, with the letter from Citi saying there is no lien, for a duplicate title and if you incur any costs for doing so you can sue the dealer in small claims court for their negligent breach of your contract with them and recover any such costs.
