    Default Purchase of a Truck With a Falsified VIN to Conceal Non-Repairable Title

    My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: TEXAS. Purchased a Classic truck from a nice elderly man (private citizen). Discovered that Title document I received and VIN Plate on the truck were phony. Apparently this was done to cover up a Non-Repairable Title which in Texas means this vehicle can never be titled in Texas (no exceptions). He refuses to give money back. This seems to be major fraud.

    Do you know if he changed the vin plate?

    how did you ascertain the vin plate had been changed?

    If you can prove the fraud, you can sue the seller to recover your money. You may be able to do that in magistrate's (small claims) court, but if the value of the truck exceeds the court's jurisdictional limits you have to choose between waiving part of the potential recovery or suing in a regular trial court.

    You can try to make a police report.
