stolen work truck
« on: April 09, 2018, 05:01:02 PM »
The police found my truck today. Some poor guy bought it in texas and tried to title it in  las cruces. I want to go after the dealership that sold it. What a great day.

glad you found it at least. I know a lot of car dealers can be let's say less than honest but geeze that's a new low.

The income lost is tens of thousands of dollars, ironically it made for a great tax year

Just found out the dealership is off the hook, but I wonder how it was they purchased it without a clean title

Glad your truck turned up and I hope it is the same shape that it was before it was stolen.

Not sure how losing thousands of dollars of revenue is offset by having a good tax year.

A similar thing happened to my brother about forty years ago.  He bought a truck that was stolen and traded in at a dealership.  They dropped the ball by selling the vehicle before the title work from the trade in was finished.  In the end my brother had to buy another vehicle and the dealership was also off the hook.

Just looking at the bright side of life. During the Falklands war the Argentinians sunk a british  warship, as it was sinking the british sailors sang monty pythons song Look at the bright side of life.
