A: Your question is not crystal clear to me but I'll do my best. If you sold the truck and there was a lien on it at the time I assume you had a loan to buy the truck and it was not paid off. That should be reflected on the pink slip and you should have explained that to the buyer. Alternatively, if someone has a lien on the truck, not reflected on the pink slip then you should have disclosed it. If the lien and details were not disclosed to the buyer they may be able to return the truck and get their money back.
