I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to seek guidance on a legal matter concerning a recent car sale and the potential consequences that may arise from it. I apologize for any confusion caused in my previous messages. Allow me to provide a more organized account of the situation.
I reside in Charlotte, North Carolina. I purchased a car from a friend, and unfortunately, we did not complete a bill of sale for the transaction. Instead, I made payments directly to her. The title of the car was in her name, but I am uncertain if it was registered under her name as well. I still owed her $150, and at the time, I encountered financial difficulties due to the car's transmission failure and the need to move out of my previous residence.
Given the circumstances, I decided to sell the car to a car junking company for $100 since I could not afford to repair it. Unfortunately, the lack of paperwork resulted in them offering me a lower amount for the car. Considering my financial situation at the time (having only $9 to my name), I accepted their offer.
Recently, my friend contacted me regarding the remaining $150 owed for the car. This situation has raised concerns about the potential consequences of the car being registered in her name, and the possibility of her reporting it as stolen. I am worried that since I sold the car and signed the receipt, I may face legal repercussions.
In light of these circumstances, I kindly request your legal advice on how to handle this situation. Specifically, I would like to know if it is possible for my friend to report the car as stolen, given that I sold it and signed the receipt. Additionally, I am concerned about any potential legal consequences I may face as a result of this transaction.
In summary, I am seeking your expert guidance and advice on how to address the concerns arising from the recent car sale, particularly regarding the possibility of the car being reported as stolen by my friend. I understand that the absence of proper documentation and the financial constraints I faced at the time may complicate the situation, but I am committed to resolving this matter in a legal and responsible manner.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to your valuable insights and recommendations
