Does my ex have a case?

I started dating this guy in August and while dating him "sold" him a vehicle; I put sold in quotations because he was buying the car on a payment plan while the title was still in my name. The day we agreed to this, he gave me $200 and said he would pay me the rest on his next 2 paychecks, which never happened. The car had to be taken to the mechanic because of an overheating issue and the mechanic fixed it. During that time, he paid the mechanic little by little because he was buying the car from me and that was our agreement. He got fired from his job, but had another one lined up, but failed to show up to that one, so he hasn't had a job for a couple of months. Fast forward to now, about 4 weeks ago, he was going to be working with this guy helping him with a fence and he said he would pay me the rest a day or 2 after the job was done. Come to find out, the guy tried contacting him, but the ex never answered or got back to him. I asked my ex when I was getting my money once I found out he wasn't helping that one guy and he said as soon as he got another job. I was also in touch with the mechanic during all of this and finally the car was done and ready to go. I finally decided I was done waiting for my ex to get a job and pay me, so I got a loan from the bank to pay the mechanic to get my car back. The day I got the loan, I also found out my ex borrowed money from someone to buy his second motorcycle. I've had the car for about a week and as soon as my ex found out, he told me I owed him $947 and he was threatening to take me to court and still is. I have screenshots of messages from a week ago of him saying 2 times he was going to blow up the car and 1 time of him saying he can hire someone to do it for him. I also have messages of him saying he's going to post photos I sent to him all over the internet. I have messages of him saying he's going to make my life a living hell if I don't pay him and also a message saying he hopes I have a miscarriage. He told a friend and coworker that he's still planning on taking me to court and suing me for $1200, I don't know how he thinks he can do that, but whatever. He's the one who basically broke our agreement of him paying me until the car was paid off. He hasn't had a job for awhile and I don't think has made any effort to get one either. He even told the mechanic he was planning on paying me first and then the mechanic himself. My question is does anyone think he has a case? Because I truly believe he will lose

I don’t know much about the law, or what court would consider a form of agreement (like if the texts would be enough evidence). Did he say in text that he would pay you the rest once he started working? From what I read it doesn’t sound like he’ll win that. He didn’t pay you, he didn’t pay the mechanic, he even got at least 2 jobs that he never showed up for so I’m not sure how he thinks he’ll win that one

Help a mama out and respond anonymously on our forum. Does my ex have a case?

He probably wouldn’t even take you to court. It just sounds like he wants to scare and harass you. He sounds like a bum

I don’t think he has a case at all. The title is in your name. Is there a written agreement saying he was to pay you payments? If so I would screenshot and or print out every time he paid you and keep the mechanic recipes showing you had to pay it. Make sure you have all proof that you still own and are still paying for the car

Depends who name the car is in? If it’s his then legally he owns that car xx

Him threatening to post private images of you is illegal.

If its in your name still. He cant do squat. Also, I’m assuming there wasnt a written agreement either. Was there more than $200 paid to you?
I really think he’d lose.
Also, you need to stay far away from him and consider showing the police those text messages. He seems a bit unhinged.

All talk… car is under your name, you are receiving threatening messages from him, and he wants to expose private images? Easy case for you if he decides to take it up to court, which i highly doubt he’ll do seeing how broke he is.

The ex is a lazy lying ass and honestly he would screw himself over if he did try to take you to court. As for the threats. Call the cops and place an order of protection on him. Say good riddance and move on.

small claims court it is for you. How ever you did not have a contract did you? that may be an obstacle.

I mean, if he bought a car through a dealership and didn’t make the payments on time, it would be repo’d and he’d be out the money. He doesn’t have a leg to stand on.

He doesnt have a case. Ur good. Car is in ur name so legally it’s still urs. File a no contact order against him if need be.

Sounds like a bunch of high school drama. Lesson of the day is: DONT DO PAYMENT PLANS WITH ANYONE. Cash up front or no car. This could of all been avoided

Posting personal photos that someone sent is illegal as hell. It’s considered “revenge p*rn” and can also be a felony charge punishable by prison time and up to a $10,000 fine. I’d let him know that. And that you have screenshots of all the threats and harassment, so if he takes you to court a judge is going to see all of that, and you will win. He will end up owing you a lot more than he did for the car. Screw him. The car is in your name and he flat out refused to pay you for it. Spent his money on anything and everything else but paying you. That’s considered repossession, which is completely legal. Him harassing and threatening you, however is not. He will lose in court, you will win and probably get a nice chunk of change while you’re at it. I’d also get a restraining order against him if I were you. I know it’s just a piece of paper, but he’ll go to jail if he violates it. He thinks he can make your life a living hell? I think in this situation it’s the exact opposite. You can screw his life up, and I strongly urge you to do so. Knock him off his high horse and show him you’re not putting up with his bullshit. Power to you hun!! Hope everything gets better for you!

He’s shit out of luck if that cars in your name.

Do not respond to him.

Keep the threatening messages for proof…maybe speak to the police not sure they’ll take action but may give advice
I doubt he’ll take you to court . He must know he’d lose
Posting private pics is illegal but he’d actually have to do it before you could take action against him for that I think

I would file a report and hand him a restraining order. Period. He won’t ever bothering taking you to court

As long as you weren’t dumb and didn’t give him the title before him paying you off then he cant sue you for it considering it’s in your name… you can get the car back too since he wants to play games long as you still have the title to it.

Honey he can’t afford to take you to court. Either way he has no case as long as the car is your name. I’d contact police about those threatening messages and file a restraining order on him though.

Well the title is in your name so it’s yours. Also when doing payment plans make sure the have paid the full amount before letting them take the car.

I hope you have the agreement in writing stating the make, model & year of the car, the amount he agreed to, a schedule for payment & that you would take the vehicle back if he didn’t pay you in full signed by both of you & a witness who’s willing to testify for you. If you don’t your case isn’t as solid as you think it is. You can use text messages that show this agreement but he can say they’re fake. It’ll be upto a judge to decide.

As for the threats get a restraining order now! It’s just a piece of paper that won’t prevent him from damaging your car or hurting you. It does show that you were fearful of him. Helps lead investigators in his direction if something happens & gives you some power as in if you see him in violation you can have him arrested before he does anything. Get cameras around your house inside & out. Set up lights too. Tip put something on the dash of your car, hanging from your mirror, in a window, somewhere that can be seen on camera. Change it every few hours. That’ll help find the moment on recording if the car is vandalized. For example if he steals from it or damages the back where you can’t see it on video you can scroll through the recording to the last object you put in place before you saw the damage. It’ll help you figure out what part of the recording to watch.

Move away as soon as your able. Get in touch with a DV agency. They can help you avoid danger.

Make sure you screenshot all of the messages between yall that regard to the payment plan agreement, messages about him making payments to you or really anything about the car, and any other messages of him threatening you. He may take you to court but he will loose. If he hadn’t been paying on the car then you had every right to repo the car and he is just SOL because he should have made the agreed upon payments

put this $4ithead behind bars…. he has threatened you twice. Get an OP, any further contact he can go to jail. he don’t have a pot to piss in without having money to hire a lawyer and take you to court. Hem him up having to look for bail money and be done with him.

If the car is in your name & you have a written agreement that he was going to pay you for it, take him to court. You’ll win and he’ll owe you.

He has nothing.

He has no case. He would lose. It’s your vehicle. He used it and didn’t pay in full, so he basically paid for that use.
You do have a case tho, if anything happens to you or the vehicle.
Get a restraining order ASAP and if possible, at the same time, a court order for him to delete any images of you that he has (if this is even possible).

Seems to me he “rented” the car … He paid pretty much to use it … Tell him go ahead and he will probably stop his shit… I had a crazy ex the less his threats scared me the faster he shut his mouth

He doesn’t have a case. I would however, suggest getting a restraining order. And if he does post pictures of you online, that’s called revenge porn. You need to report that immediately. Hell, I would report him anyway. List it all in the restraining order.

First of all contact the police over the threats to blow up the car or have someone do it. That’s terrioristic threats and highly illegal! Second as long as you have ALL the msgs that shows he agreed he owed you then he has NO case. You repoed the car after non payment.

I don’t think he would have a case. Show the judge all the receipts, the loan you took to pay the mechanic. Send the screenshots of him texting you and if you can, make him admit to paying you back for the agreement put in place. He’s a money grubbing soul that does not need anymore of other people’s money. Also, tell the judge that he borrowed money from someone to buy a 2nd motorcycle and that he needs to get his priorities straight in order.

I’ve dealt with that with my kids father. Good luck to you.

Oh isn’t that cute. He thinks he can sue YOU over YOUR car. Listen y’all had an agreement and HE broke it. The car is STILL in YOUR name and it’s yours to keep. Tell him to go ahead and take you to court. Then you can counter sue him for harassment. :woman_shrugging:t4: In the future if you try to make a deal like this, put a timeframe on it. Like you have six months to pay in full or the contract is null and void. Also, I would take these threats to the police and get a restraining order.

The real crime here is not anything to do with the car, it is the absolute tragic reality that you are pregnant with a man who “hopes you have a miscarriage”, I would love to see Judge Judy laugh him out of court but I’d love it even more if he got run over crossing the street

That’s like getting a loan for a car, only making a payment or two and it getting repoed… They don’t give you your money back! So no he has no case! AND if its in your name and he takes it or tries to do something to it then he will be in trouble! File a police report so its on file in case something happens! Document, document, document!!!

Don’t fall for any of his bullshit talk. Which is all he is doing. He has no case at all nothing was ever in writing and the car was and is still in your name. That means it’s your car to do as you please with. He is mad but he will get over it. He can’t afford to pay you or the mechanic so he has no way to pay to take you to court. He is just talking out his ass. Don’t even respond to the nonsense. If you have no reason to be interacting with this boy then don’t give him the time or your attention. If anything you have plenty of evidence of him threading you and you could press charges on him for harassment. I personally would just so he knows you aren’t going to take his shit anymore…

Keep all the receipts from this time. It’s his word against physical proof

If the car is titled in your name and your name alone, no he has no case. You paid the mechanic, you paid for the car, the car is in your name, you were letting him use the car until he paid for it. You were essentially the bank. When someone doesn’t make a loan payment to the bank, the bank takes the property back. I would file a police report and a restraining order about the harassment and threats immediately.

Did you guys have a written agreement? The car was never his. It’s been in your name this entire time. I would refund him the 200 bucks he did give you and that’s it. I would also go straight to court and get a restraining order against him NOW. Save those texts and even print them out. Text him back that you have saved his threats and if anything happens, he will be suspect #1. Then tell him to never contact you again and block him on all socials. I hope hes not your kid’s father.

Whose name is the car in? Is there a paper and signed agreement on this deal? The mechanic held it due to non payment. If done the legal way it is called a mechanic lean. Which means he holds the car until the amount is paid. If in your name he has no proof or backup. Also, if there is an agreement made he failed to pay and failed to pay mechanic which mechanic also can be pulled into court to testify. He has no case, no job, no money. Don’t stress and keep moving on.

He will never take you to court, but you need to take those messages to police. He communicated threats. That’s a charge.
