sold car...now in deep crap

Hi everyone. My hubby sold his car about two months ago and wrote a bill of sales and gave it to the guy. The guy said he would take care of the registrations and all that. So a month later we hear that that guy sold the car to someone else. Well we didnt care and didnt think much of it. Now we get a letter from the tollway authority saying that someone has been running the tolls and were responsible. I call and they tell me the car is still under his registrations...! Ugh what a nightmare. We dont even remember the name of the person we sold the car to much less who HE sold the car to. Is there any way to fix this or are we just screwed ?

Maybe you could do a CARFAX or some other history report on it to find out who you sold it to.

Ugh I had a feeling we were screwed. No my idiot husband wrote a bill of sales or whatever and gave it to the guy. No copy, no name, no nothing. The guy paid cash to so no trace there. He apparently did not register the car under his name before selling it so...yea. I just cant believe theres nothing that can be done. I mean...we could report it stolen couldnt we ? Find the car ? They cant get the registration sticker unless they registered the car under their name right ? I have no idea. I dont drive, dont have a licsense and during times like this Im thankful I dont. Do you think DMV can help ?

I'd report it stolen, and not press charges. Once you've found out who stole it it would be easier to make sure they register it.
