Oxnard, CA asked in Criminal Law and White Collar Crime for California

Q: What type of attorney do I need to defend me after using check stubs generated on line to purchase a vehicle?

I took delivery of a car after using generated check stubs on line to verify my income. On the 8th day the dealership called to inform me the loan was not approved and to return the car.

I returned the car early this morning to the dealership. However they told me they had reported the car stolen last night and I was facing all kinds of charges. They have the car and the $2600 down payment. The loan was not approved.
