2. The seller uses duplicate titles to sell the vehicle to multiple people at the same time. Each state handles this differently with most initially accepting the original tile over a duplicate to establish new ownership.
3. The seller is conned into legally signing over the title in some scam or con. Again, each state handles this differently depending on the circumstances with most motor vehicle accepting the legal valid signature as a transfer.

If they get hold of the actual physical tile, sure signatures and identity can be faked but that title will be needed in hand. Without the legitimate physical title or E-Title access codes, there is no transfer of ownership. Real Estate just need new written papers, the old physical paper deed really are not required in this transaction.
Oh...so you've been trying to reference the old, recorded Deed from the previous transaction? Yes, once that has been recorded having that paper document in-hand is not so important. It's already served its purpose. It's nice to keep the Deed for information purposes (primarily the legal description) but, if you don't have it, you can always find the needed information at the Register of Deeds' office (or whatever office handles recorded real estate documents).
