    No, dad signed the title.

    Basically I was there because trailer is at my barn where I board. They looked and gave me a check made out to my dad and with the title ready to go, signed by my dad. I was basically the person who took their check - to my dad.

    Have you dad contact the bank. They can probably do something about this as this is fraud.

    You really don't know if they actually kept the trailer. My thoughts are they sold it since they had the title. A photo of it in their possession may be helpful if it's not too late

    Good luck and I hop your father gets better.

    I never sell anything anymore unless it is for cash. I will give a receipt or title or whatever, but it has to be cash. If the buyer is coming on later Saturday or sunday to look at something, they can either get the cash Friday or use an ATM. Any excuse of not having the cash with banks, atms, etc so accessable these days is a red flag to me.

    When I go to buy something, I plan ahead and take cash. It can always go back in the bank if the sale falls thru. Of course if we are talking thousands of dollars and know the sale is going through, I will accept a bank cashiers check . I would also ask the seller if they will accept the cashiers check.
    Its sad when people set out to steal something.. I am sorry and hope this works out.

    Notify motor vehicles if you know the registration number. What about the licence plate. Where is that?

    Well we didn't call the police. We did send a letter from an attorney to the people who finally called. Initially they asked me in an email if it was road ready and I thought it was. I just used it this summer. They came and looked at it and paid me. Then hauled it away.

    Next day they took it to someplace to have it checked out. Mechanic told them it has a broken spring and 3 bulges in 4 of the tires. I had no idea as I thought the tires were great and never have looked underneath it. Guess that shows you my trailer knowledge. My dad thought the trailer was fine too.

    Now they are claiming that I misrepresented the trailer by saying it was road ready. Honestly I had no idea that the trailer had any issues. Even hauled my own horse in it. Anyway if I were going to swindle them I would have taken cash.

    They have until this Sunday to pay otherwise we are going to court.

    They either pay you for it or they bring it back. Simple as that. Who is say the mechianic isn't their friend and they are trying to get it for free.

    He won't bring it back because he states that it isn't safe. He says if we want the trailer back to come get it. Dad says no - he owns it. No warranty ever was implied and we had no idea of the problems. He inspected it himself. Anyway, I don't want the trailer back for obvious reason. Unfortunate situation.

    The laws might be different where you are, but around here a used vehicle, much less a trailer, when sold privately comes without any warranties whatsoever. Once the ownership is signed over to the new person and they take possession it's their baby, regardless what they may find afterwards, intentionally concealed or otherwise. It's the buyers responsibility to actually do their homework before agreeing to purchase, not the seller's responsibility to do so.

    There are failing to uphold their side of the agreement and trying to weasel out on what they think is a technicality that doesn't actually exist, so I suggest you stick to your guns and get your money.

    This is a prime example to everybody of why only to deal with cash, certified cheques, or a bank draft in these sorts of situations I would never ever accept a personal cheque for anything from someone I don't personally know as a friend.
