Have DMV run the VIN number and contact the owner and any lean holder listed. It also poosible he took it on trade with a payofff and then never paid the payoff and can't get clear title.That wouold be fraud as he never had legal right to sell the car without clear title.

Last time I talked to him he said he was working on it and to not call him back again. He avoids our phone calls because he has a caller ID, and literally hides when we go to the dealership.
My question is, what is the best way to get our title? I have a feeling he is a dishonest person and doesn't plan to give us a title at all. Where do I complain? Husband said it is a really big crime.
We live in Florida.
Thank you.

what should I do?
Did he register the car in your name? Do you have a bill of sale, cancelled check, or any other documentation showing you paid for the car?

If so, stop screwing with the dealer and go to whoever handles vehicle transactions in your state and explain the situation to them.

If not, you may very well be screwed.

You can do a few things. Talk to an attorney, get a free consult. Ask how best to approach this. Or: Call your State's Better Business Bureau, ask for Consumer Fraud and Protection, and talk to someone there, explain everything you've mentioned here, including his dodging you. Then file a report w/ them, sometimes it is online...
or Take your purchase receipt down to motor vehicles and tell them what he has done, again explaining everything. Sounds fishy.
My son bought a used car this fall. He received his title through the dealership w/in just a couple weeks.

You've got 30 days, and you better hope the buyer is willing to join you in being shady.

I bought a car on eBay from a dealer. I paid in full. He told me it was a Florida law for him to collect for tag, title & sales tax. The dealer is no longer with eBay, his private email is no longer in service, his phone is no longer in service, my temp. tag is no longer any good, I am getting no response from anyone. He is not at the location I pick up and paid for the vehicle. I recently did a search on the dealer to find out there is a lot of fraud and other business names he goes by. E Bay has not replied back or the better busy bureau. Not sure what to do now. This car was advertized with a clear title.

I just bought a car from a dealer and was told that it is a state law that he has to collect for the title transfer, impact fees, tags, tax and just gives a written receipt.

The dealer by Florida law handles everything. A private person selling a car would do as you say. I maybe wrong, but they was explain it to me this way.
