A: Sue him for what is called recision--means unwinding the deal--and also for what you paid. Hopefully you can do that in small claims.You'll have a problem if the bill of sales said that and you still signed, but give it a shot. You can also talk to the attorney generals consumer division if he was a business as it may be illegal to sell a car with no title and a waive to a consumer.
