More details to this question:
The title is under my mom's name. It is also uninsured at the moment. Nothing was documented except what was said through text. It is a 2013 Mini Cooper S 2D with a salvage title. It had 29,800 miles on it when he gave it to me. One moment he says he'll give me back my money, the next, he refuses. We made a verbal agreement of me paying him $12,000, but as time went on, he said he didn't want to deal with me anymore and demanded I give him the key back and he'd give me my money back. Of course my mother is on his side. I'm stuck in a bind and he took every last cent from me. I just don't know what to do. Please help me.

In the future, have a written contract and pay by check so that you have a written record and written contract. You are now in a situation where all the 'facts' are verbal. You could go to Small Claims Court and present witnesses. Ed Dimon

Consumer Law
Most--but not all--businesses act ethically and honestly. If a company fails to honor a product's warranty, or is violating the Fair Credit Reporting Act and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or refuses to replace a defective product under state lemon laws, you may need a strong advocate on your side. An attorney whose practice focuses on consumer law can work tirelessly to see that you are treated fairly and afforded all of the consumer rights and protections afforded to you under state and federal laws.
