My uncle wants to keep $7400 given from me and take the car back to sell it. I paid in cash, how can I get my money back?

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
