    Auto Straw Purchase

    I know a car straw purchase is illegal and that its a type of fraud...so how much time car you get if convicted of a straw purchase and since its a type of fraud is it going to be considered as a felony??

    Really?

    How do you "know" that?

    Have you read it in a statute? Can you cite the statute?

    If you are referring to the deal with your friend that you explained in:

    http://community.lawye...

    There was nothing illegal about that deal.

    Foolish, but not illegal.

    It would be fraud if your intent was to defraud the lender or the dealer.  Or if THEIR intent was to defraud YOU.  At this point the only thing you may be facing is that you repoed the vehicle without going through due process first but the only thing the judge may see that is as "splitting hairs" since they were already two months behind on the payments and the finance company would have done the same exact thing. 

    Bottom line is it's a civil matter and if they want to be foolish enough to try and sue for the car payments they made for the time they used the car then let them try.  They won't get far.  If they tried to sue a commercial lender for the payments after repoing the car they would lose too.  Try that argument on them.  See if they fold.

    Trust me, whatever you read on the internet doesn't apply to you. At least unless you read a particular statute that describes exactly what you did.

    Anyway, if it was fraud, you're the one who committed it. You bought the car, you financed the car, you turned the car over to your friend. Do you still think it's fraud.

    As long as they are TALKING they aren't DOING.

    And as long as you keep talking to them, you'll only aggravate yourself.

    I suggest you stop talking and ignore them.

    • ClydesMom...I will make that argument with them and I know they will have a different view after I say that to them

    Jack...I was referring to myself when I was asking about the fraud part not them...they are just idiots in my opinion if they think a judge will agree with them because like you guys said a bank would of done the same thing since they where 2 months behind going on 3

    Thanks for all of your guys input it is very much appreciated!
