My question involves civil rights in the State of: California
its was Feb 2016. My father had just passed away in January. he left me a little money. The guy I was seeing at the time said he had been looking for another truck to buy. I had been looking for a jeep on craigslist for a few weeks also. he found a truck he really wanted but he didn't have the money for it. we went and looked at it anyway. I told him that I would "loan" him the money to buy the truck. he had been working the same job for 9 years and it was a new relationship so I of course, trusted him. when we went to see it, I gave the guy $1000 deposit. the seller still owed $600 in penalties before they would send the title so we were waiting til he got the title. march 12 2016 we went back and gave the guy $10000. when we went to transfer the title he put it in both our names "AND". Then he went to dmv on 4 17,2017 and forged my name on the title and took me off the title.
oh then 9 2016 his son calls him and says he needs 5000 so he said to ask me, like the idiiot I am I went the same day and withdrew 5000 cash for his son, I did write up a contract and he signed it but has never paid me a dime and I have no idea where he is living now
