My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Florida
In August I bought a car at a dealership in Fort Lauderdale. I cheap car for $1500. I had $900 down so we spaced out the rest in payments every two weeks. I have temporary plates on the car and I have been calling and calling to see when the plates would arrive... they never called back. Now they are one month expired, so I finally drove out to the dealership to get the plates and pay the last payment and get the title.
The dealership is gone.
All I have is the temporary registration and plates. I was pulled over the other night and the officer issued me a warning, notice to appear in court and present the new plates.
Now what do I do? They are gone, so I have no plates, no title and a ticket to appear in court and the possibility of loosing my license is I can't present the proper registration information.
I am calling the DMV and will likely need to file a police report, but does anyone have other advice? I am a mom with a full time job and need the car to get to work... this is a very serious situation.
