    i think my ski is stolen.

    i get home tonight, and there is a message from a detec on my answering machine to call him. so i call in, and he is like asking did you buy a 96 venture from this guy nolberto. and i said yes, and he said well we just arrested him a few days ago, for switching ski tags, and we need to look at your ski. he said my ski is 90% chance of being stolen, and i have to call him tomorrow with the engine vin, and some other hull number. this is great, i already installed the grate, and have all new oil lines, fuel lines and carb rebuild kits ordered. and im going to be out the 2 grand i paid for the ski. WTF

    IMT,your only recourse to collect, is in civil court..You should prob find legal advise on this matter..

    stolen

    I had the same thing happen to me on some merchandise and I won the suit in civil court !! The theif was ordered to pay me back in restitution, but as usual he was a broke loser who had nothing !! So if I am lucky I sometimes see 10 or 15 dollars a month !! GOOD LUCK !

    bro your basically screwed!! if its stolen the dt's will confiscate the ski from you, thank you for your cooperation and tell you to sue the thief in a civil court.. and like mentioned above if the thief is broke the court will order him to pay you restitution money which you will never see your 2k again.

    this same scenario happened to a friend of mine with a dirt bike he bought for 3,000 on the tittle he put he purchased it for $800 (to pay less taxes) well he was only able to sue the thief (legally) for $800 and still he saw a $20 deposit from the thief in his account once a blue moon.

    Get in touch with an attorney through your State Bar website and see if you can find someone who will give you a free initial consultation so you can find out what your rights are in your state. There may also be free information on the site for consumers that you can read and at least get an idea of the best way to proceed. The police do not give legal advice.

    That blows. If it turns out it was stolen, take everything off that you bought... and then some. Give 'em back a hull and a motor, part everything else out

    But seriously, that sucks. People like that will get what they deserve.
