    In Iowa there is a place on the back of the title where a seller signs that they no longer own the vehicle and to whom they are transferring the title. If that section is not "signed over" the County Treasurer will not generate a new title for the vehihcle.


    In Iowa a LICENSED DEALER does not have to transfer title of a used vehicle but is able to keep it "floating" until they sell it to a consumer

    In almost (if not every) every jurisdiction you will be told it is a civil matter. You claim he owes you money, he says he does not. It is a small claims case.

    I think I would let him keep the 200 before I went in front of her.

    No police report in NY. Strictly a civil matter. Hopefully you gave a check or MO as deposit. Send a written demand for return of deposit. Get written notice of requirement for loan. Then file in Small Claims Court.

    It would be a civil matter here because of intent. There is no proof (from what you told us) the seller had the intent to take your money and never give it back at the time of the transaction. You gave him money to hold the car, there was a glitch in how payment was to be made, and he hasn't refunded your deposit. The county attorney could in no way prove the seller had ill intent when you entered into the contract to buy the car.

    In addition to intent, what you have is a violation of a contract. Contract law is civil, not criminal. There is no criminal sanction for violations of contracts. Buyer beware.

    Our Attorney General's Office has a consumer affairs division that can help out at times such as what you described. Check with your state and see if they have something similar. Otherwise, small claims court would be your recourse.

    I've written a report for an issue like this once. And that's because it invovled a monetary issue approximately 60x larger than yours and I covered my own ***.

    Every other time has been a referral to the civil magistrate. I am not sworn in by the sheriff to help people "strengthen their civil claims."

    Not necessarily so. In most instances, police will not take a report in a civil matter. Your recourse would be either through a small claims action (check NY Law) or retaining an attorney.

    Sounds like a civil issue to me. You entered into a contract to buy the car whether written or verbal. You have a receipt for your deposit. You can probably take him to civil court to get your money back. Then again this might be different in NY.

    While laws may vary state to state, out here we would simply advise you it was a civil matter and you would need to file a claim in small claims court.
