I live in the state of North Carolina. I sold a car to a buyer (Lonny), about 2 years ago. After Lonny paid for the car we took the title to a notary and done the paper work. I'm assuming that Lonny has sent off the title to be in his name. I immediately turn in my tags, registration and tell my insurance agency I'm no longer the owner of the car. I've received no letters, bills or phone calls about the vehicle for two years. Yesterday, I received a phone call from Lonny saying that he sold the car to his friend (Jimmy), but the title is still in my name. Lonny claims that the title was filled out wrong. Lonny asks me to do him a favor and call Jimmy to arrange with Jimmy at a DMV to get the title in Jimmy's name. Lonny gives me Jimmy's telephone number. I call Jimmy. Jimmy says he had let his relative (Mary) drive his car and Mary got lots of tickets. Jimmy says that Mary's violations will be written off if I were claim ownership of the vehicle. Jimmy wants me to go with him to a DMV and resign the title because it is filled out incorrectly(he claims). I don't know whether to get involved or not. Lonny was reponsible for getting the title transfered in his name. I'm thinking that if my name was really on that title, I would have received some kind of letter within the past 2 years due to the violations Mary has gotten. And if I sign the title, I could be liable.
So do I get involved or let well enough alone?
