What is it that you are trying to accomplish? Simply getting your car back, getting someone "in trouble" or both? Forging a signature on a vehicle title (or other legal document) is a crime. It appears that the car must be registered (in WV) - how long did you leave it? It isn't clear what rights you may have without knowing all the facts. You may want to consult an attorney before doing or saying anything else about this matter. Good luck.

Forging the title is a crime. Registering the vehicle with a forged title is also a crime. However, there are other ways to get a title if the vehicle has been abandoned. Contact Virginia DMV to find out how your car's title changed hands before assuming or doing anything.
