Bought a used car yesterday from a guy on marketplace. We agreed on a price and he went inside for the title, came back out and I should have left then but no I had hopes he was a decent person. The car was donated to a car foundation and was signed over by the original owner. Then sold to a dealer from the auction. (The guy I was purchasing from)! The title had his dealer number and all the proper notarizations from what I understood from doing some research in his driveway, he assured me everything was legit and I would have no issues.. I signed the title and paid the man. 5 tag agency trips later I was unable to transfer the title. His dealer number was not valid, they informed me since he was a dealer he should have supplied a purchase agreement, which he did not. And to top it off the car foundation needed to put it in their name from the start before the auction took place, atleast that’s what they said. Title jumping is what they called it and I am stuck with an a car I can’t even register 🙃🙃 after a few minutes of research on the ole inter web showed me he was a felon and a drunk so I demanded my money back and after a long 30min argue with the guy in his front yard of him telling me to find a shady notary and do this and that he finally gave me the money back. I’m glad I got my hard earned money back and will never pay for a used car unless they meet me at the tag agency before payment is made. Did he think I would park the car and not get it legal in my name? Maybe he just didn’t car and wanted to run a scam..
Either way I’m blessed to have my money returned and learned a valuable lesson.
What’s the world coming to with people like this trying to rip somebody off. Not much faith for the future with things like this going on daily, but we have to keep hope that’s there’s good people left out there. I’ve met many honest and fair fellers on osa so I know your out there just can’t let your guard down these days…

I will never understand theft. It’s one thing I absolutely detest. It’s why I have such an issue with entitlements for people who receive something for doing nothing. I feel like it’s theft. I’m glad you got your money back. People like him are why so many people like us don’t want to do private business transactions with vehicles.

Can’t you report him to the Oklahoma Automobile Dealers Association with a possible fraud claim?
O.A.D.A.
That’s not a bad idea, it really turned my stomach as I was leaving his last words were I’ve sold many cars like this and never had problems. He’s probably ripped many ppl off in the past

That guy’s going to pull that scam on the wrong person and end up black and blue with missing teeth if not worse. :censored:
