Can you imagine someone taking a new vehicle as a gift, getting a TitleMax loan for it, then hiding it in the back woods so the TitleMax people couldn't find it? This is a dangerous thing to do. Talk about taking a big risk. Using the money to borrow from Peter loan company to pay Paul loan agency. The ending to this story is not a pleasant one. The first vehicle he got a TitleMax loan on was left in our driveway. It has outdated plates and out of state plates. It has 3 flat tires. It has sat in our driveway almost an entire year. TitleMax called and wanted to know where it was and he told them it was in tim buck two BF egypt. The second vehicle, the SUV, given as a gift from his brother so he could get a job and have reliable transportation is parked somewhere in his home state, in the woods, collecting critters and by now has probably been found and taken by a car thief or by Department of Motor Vehicles and impounded or TitleMax has it by now. It was valued at 7500.00 used.

He sounds a real piece of work. This is very serious indeed. They mean business those car loan places..

If they find him they will probably place charges against him and demand the return of both vehicles.

Isn't that sort of fraud or even theft?

It's gonna get him in trouble, that's for sure. I got to find a way to get rid of the car in the drive way. If it don't get gone soon the city force a tow at our expense.

@lookatdesktop tell him to move it within a certain time and if he doesn't maybe get into the car and push it down the road off your property. Not very fair if you get fined for his actions.

@Mike197602 Yea, thanks. I can't push it anywhere though. It has 3 flat tires, he has the keys and the door is locked and if it went out into the traffic I would really be in trouble. lol.

He's a family member and we only found out the rest of the stuff about this later after he left town.
