The other day my 18 year old daughter bought a used car from a private owner. The girl she bought it from told her the car was in her uncle's name for insurance purposes and could not find the pink so she had the application for a duplicate. She also had the registration and a Vehicle Registration Inquiry report. In the ad it said the car had 154,000 miles on it. The next day I ran a Carfax report and in 2011 the car had 200,000 miles on it. We contacted the girl and she said she would meet us and give my daughter her money back but of coarse now she will not answer her phone or texts. I have tried contacting the registered owner and hoping he will respond to my messages. I believe all the documents that she gave to my daughter are forged by this girl. What can I do?I know this may turn out to be an expensive lesson for my daughter but besides what I already stated she also failed to tell my daughter that the gas gauge did not read right. My daughter could have ran out of gas at night on a dark road and that is the part I have the hardest time with. Even if my daughter does not get her money back this girl needs to be caught but I want to know the best way to handle this. Any help or advice please.
Odometer fraud IS a crime. Make police report and a dmv report.
