I asked if there was some workaround to get the title in my name without getting it bonded, and I happen to think there probably is.

So thanks for offering nothing but trash talk I suppose.
To be fair, you have A title, but since it was never transferred to the seller's name, it isnt really a valid title. I think it is on the up-and-up, but when it comes to legal docs, technicalities tend to have more gravity.

Dude finally got back to me this morning saying he's sorry for the late reply and that he just followed up with the dealer and is waiting to hear back.

Get the feeling I'm just wasting my time with this guy. Pretty sure he's going to F around trying to pin down the dealer and the dealer isn't going to go thru with it. I guess I'll give him a few more hours before heading over to the DMV.

I guess I don't even understand how this happened in the first place.
Who owns the car according to the photo I posted? Is it GH Motors LLC? I'm trying to find them online, but I don't see any in TX with that name. I searched taxable entities and came up with nothing.

Anyhow, assuming GH Motors sold him the car, how did he get possession of the title? I thought that when a dealer sells a car, they have to send everything off and you never get the title from them.

I mean is there no way at all on my end to avoid bonded title at this point? Seems like I could just write it up like I purchased from GH Motors and send it in or something. That or maybe find a title agent who could figure something out...

Nigerian just called again. Asked me to be patient and said not to get a bonded title that's a waste of money.
Said he sells cars as a side hustle and is 100% sure he can get it straightened out.
Said he is waiting on the dealer he got it from(his friend) to send him their dealer number, then he is going to send me to a lady he knows that can inspect the car and file everything for 25 dollars, so I assume she is a title agent or something.

I know money is tight, and youre out there hustling for a buck these days. That being said, at some point you have to wonder if your time isnt worth more than the time and hassle of dealing with like this (trying to find the cheapest route to do things). To me, saving like $75-$100 wouldnt me worth my time in dealing with all this quasi-shady nonsense. Combined with the opportunity cost of not being out there making more money because youre around with all this. Just my $.02.

So you are saying you'd just get a bonded title and be done with it?

Believe it or not, it's really not about the money. I just prefer to have a title that doesn't have a "bonded" stamp on it. The original idea was to buy a sub 2000 dollar vehicle, drive it until the wheels fall off, then at that point I'll know if this handyman business is going to be more permanent. I could then sell the van for 500-1000 and get a nicer work vehicle at that point.
I'm afraid that with a bonded title, I either won't be able to sell it, or would have to basically give it away.

It's going to carry the bonded stamp for at least three years, and I don't think it's unreasonable to assume that some major issues with the van could come up before them, prompting me to sell it VS spend more than I paid for it on repairs.

As far as time goes, it's me having to make two more trips to the DMV/tag office(and shop around for a surety bond), VS meeting whatever lady he is talking about and getting it all done with her.

However, it would also be nice to avoid some quasi-shady nigerian title transfer lol

I would have just gotten the bonded title. I dont even know how selling the vehicle with it still being bonded would work, but bonded > salvage. I dont see bonded as an issue, really. It's just procedural.

I'm guessing next time you will be patient and keep looking, until you find something in your budget with a clean blue title...

This sale is as shady as buying Jordans from a sketchy guy, in an alley, off Bourbon st

Dude Nigerians are the worst scam artist out there no joke. For what itís worth cops arenít really pulling people over for tags right now cause the registrations offices are still closed ( at least in Montgomery county) so why not just drive it till you get the ticket and than take care of it, could be six months lol.

Also tell me again why you canít just forge a sig on the title you have? those tax collectors.

RTT for life !

Now we're getting in the neighborhood of actually answering the question in my OP. How do I fill the title out at this point to make it look like I purchased it from the last dealer on the title? Do I just sign and print where it's currently blank on the signature line, or do I need to fill out more somewhere?

Well I think all you need to do is sign the title as the buyer , but you also need a title transfer form signed by the seller/dealer, so go pick that up , lay it over the title where the signature needs to be and trace it for the seller spot and you are good. The grumpy old ladies at the registration office canít challenge your moral character, ask me how I know.
Done

That was my original thought, but there's a couple things I'm not 100% on. For reference here is the title again:



Am I correct in thinking that GH Motors is the current owner?

In other words, by signing below as the "buyer", would it appear that I purchased it from GH motors? Or would it just look like I am affiliated with GH Motors?

Another problems is that I don't have any info to fill out for the address of GH motors on the title transfer form. There's no company in Texas called "GH Motors LLC". The Nigerian did tell me that his dealer friend that he needed the dealer number form was in AZ. However, the only thing I can find is AZ is "GH Auto Consultants".

As you've probably guessed, I've yet to hear back from the Nigerian.

Oh and one more thing: Wouldn't it seem odd that I am at the tag office getting a title transferred for a car I got from a dealer? Aren't they required to mail it all in?
