My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Georgia
I recently sold my car as-is. Now I bought the car from an estate sale (the woman who owned it passed away and her son handled the estate). The car in question is a 1998, and I lived in Rhode Island at the time, and in Rhode Island they really don't bother with or care about titles on cars older than 10 years, so the title was officially still in the deceased woman's name.
Long story short, I moved to Georgia and sold the car via Craigslist to a man. The Bill of Sale reads "as-is". Now this man is threatening to sue me for committing a felony, as well as threatening to go to the police, because he's saying I had zero legal right to sell the car as I don't own it. Apparently Georgia is a little more strict when it comes to titles. I've offered to help him get the issue resolved by attempting to track down the man who sold me the car, and get the certificate of death and affidavit of estate or some such thing, however every time I talk to this man he keeps threatening to sue me if I don't have this issue resolved in a matter of days or give him a full refund.
He also wants to use my RI plates so he can drive the car, and demanded I write him out a sheet of paper letting him lease the car for $1 and granting him ownership.
What can he actually do in this situation? Have I committed a felony? Is the burden of proof on the seller, as he keeps telling me? It seems like he basically wants me to do all the leg work, and go with him to the tag office once I've acquired all this paperwork - am I required to do this?
Any and all advice is very welcome on this matter. Thank you.
