I had a vehicle for a number of years and I recently decided that it was time to buy a new one. Before I was able to buy a new car, I needed to sell the car
I had. I wasn't aware of all the steps involved in selling a car by myself!
I put a "for sale" sign on the car in front of my house. Within a few days I got a call from someone who was interested in the car. The man said "the car looks
great and I want to buy it now, cash." He didn't even try to get me to lower the price. I thought I was very lucky and I jumped at the opportunity to sell the
car fast. I arranged to meet him and I took his money in exchange for the keys! Unfortunately, a couple things had slipped my mind and I didn't realize it at first.
A couple of months went by and I got a phone call from the police. They asked if I was the owner of the car that I had sold a couple months earlier. I said that
I wasn't, and that I had sold it to a gentlemen (whose name I didn't even have) a couple of months earlier. They said, according to their records, I was still the
owner since I had not transferred the car title or cancelled my registration. I was mortified. They told me the car was impounded and the man who was driving it
was wanted in several states, on several various charges. The money I took from the man was probably criminally related, although the police didn't ask me about
that. I had to pay to get my car out of the impound yard and I was stuck with the car all over again.
