My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Georgia
I paid cash for a vehicle in Georgia and have a clear title. I traveled to another state and after being there for two days, my vehicle was "stolen" by the seller and driven to an impound yard. I explained to them AND the police what had happened and was told that it is a civil matter. The seller had placed a tracker on my vehicle, activated it, and had his goons come and get it. In talking with the seller I was told that he decided he could get more for it, that he had sold it too cheaply, and that I had to come up with an additional $5,000!!! I also found out the seller had applied for a lost title and his "retreivers" said that the State of GA had voided out my title. The date on the title the drivers had was for August-mine is dated September and shows 0 in the leinholder column. Meanwhile, the seller instructed the impound yard to also send all of my personal belongings out of state with the vehicle!!! I can't file a report with my insurance company because the police will not take a report, saying, again, it is a civil matter! What do I do, and since when is stealing a vehicle NOT a criminal matter???
