Debra, Expert

Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** will be working on your question today and I am looking forward to our conversation.

Debra, Expert

I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.

Sometimes responses and replies take time, so I ask you to be courteous and patient to allow me the time to type answers to you and also to others. At times I may even have to do some research.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.


Do you mean you have the bill of sale but you never got the trailer?

Have you called the police yet?

Customer
No this was tonight, they were given the deposit to bring it here and to be paid in full then. They tried to push for more and delay bringing it. When i refused they stopped answering and haven't heard back. However during this i was given the entire fully signed bill of sale. As in walk in to sgi put it in my name legal bill of sale. To protect my so far investment i am pondering registering it and then filing a possible fraud report and a missing trailer.
Customer
I just do not want to dig myself a hole either, i have no criminal past and no issue with police but the local station deals with me from work often and they would gladly burry me for a mistake if they can as there have been run ins resulting in suspension in the department.

How did you pay the deposit?

Customer
Etransfer, memo written as a receipt along the lines of roughly "deposit for a _____ of x amount etc" then they responded with a full bill of sale later on before trying to prompt me for more.
Customer
To be clear the full price was never paid as they didnt deliver, however took off with the deposit. Promoting to temporarily register it to cover myself from it being sold until my deposit is returned or trailer delivered in which case i would gladly pay the remainder
Customer
All resulting in the "what if" scenario of plating it, putting a note on it to protect myself in some way. Then also reporting with the police and hopefully theyll strong arm the deliver or refund it. Especially if they get told i registered it with the bill of sale. I wouldnt screw anybody back but prove i never paid for example. I have the bill of sale.

Here is the answer to your query. Please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions related to this response and know that I will respond as soon as I can.

It would make sense to register the trailer in your name so it cannot be sold again.

Then it would make sense to tell the police what has happened. It doesn't make sense to tell them it was stolen. You have to tell them the exact truth.

If you don't get the trailer by tomorrow you should also call the bank, explain what has happened and it turns out you are the victim of a fraud and ask if they can draw the money back into your account. They sometimes can.

Does that help as a starting point?


Customer
That helps a lot thanks. i didn't intend on saying anything but the truth i just didn't know what other reports were called. I would've told the story and let them give me the file for it.
Customer
I even have the guys home address, phone number and as mentioned bill of sale so somebidy finding something shouldnt be that hard

Debra, Expert

No if all that is accurate it would work out to have them charge and/or sued.

Customer
Well upon being sent all this notification they've decided to finally respond. Their so far summarized stance is biding time.
Customer
But thank you, ***** ***** situation leave me with few options as this camper was basically going to be home for a few months until back on track.

Debra, Expert

Can you please come back and let me know how it goes?

Customer
They decided to show up tomorrow so they say, time will tell. Thanks again, just wanted to check against digging my own hole with registering it. That you very much
