I buy a used car from my friend, and he just disappear

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

I'm in illinois, and he lived in Maryland

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

I have going to police department, they said they can't do anything for me, i go to the secretary of state illinois, they said they will try, not sure they can make the case becasue it's out of state, i called legal aid in ohio, because the auction was in ohio, they said they need dealership number, but i don't have it.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I have the chat history and transfer history, and i'm not sure my friend have legal identity and dealership. The car was in someone else title right now, i don't even see the car.

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.
