I bought a Mercedes for my 50th birthday. My drivers lisence was suspended at the time and my best friend was going to be driving
us, (we were inseparable) most of the time. So, to avoid possibly having to put a breathalyzer in the car, my suspension was due to a dui several years earlier and a car registered to me may have required interlock so we decided to put her as registered owner and me as lien holder/legal owner. The dealership told us the way to do the paperwork and we did it with them. My friends name was on the purchase agreement but I paid for the car and had the car in my possession
always from the date of purchase and was on title
as the legal owner/lienholder. She as I said was just registered owner. I was enrolled in a class that once I finished I could get my lisence back and by that time the time requirement for interlock would be over so my plan was to register the car to myself at that time. I trusted my best friend completely and was not worried about this arrangement in the least.
JA: License regulations vary from place to place, so can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: She stole the title and forged my name signing the car over to herself and processed it with the dmv
and then stole my car in the middle of the night
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
