I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
Any statement made by an adverse party in a court case can be entered into evidence against that party. Statements made on Messenger or texting are great for this purpose, because you've got what the other person said in writing, so there's no question. You can use it as evidence that you had an agreement. If he admits forging your name on the car's title, you can also use that.
It helps to download the messages and print them out instead of counting on your phone to provide them. This is both because sometimes things go wrong with technology, and because the judge might want to review the messages after court - you don't want to have to hand over your phone for a few days. You will have to swear under oath that the records you're admitting are a true and accurate representation of the statements made and that you printed them out as they were when you received them.
