    Hi there,

    I'd like some help on inheritance and other possessions that are sold without an owner's consent.

    My parents have recently separated. During the first few months, my father (in a mentally incapacitated and drug induced state) swapped 3 vehicles for 1 at a very low value. 2 of the cars were my mother's inheritance, and 1 was her personal car. 2 were in her name, and 1 was in mine.

    The police could do nothing because the cars were not registered. The buyer has offered us a $9000 sum to pay for own cars. Now, the buyer is threatening us that he will wreck and destroy the cars because of the heat he is feeling in our small community.

    Is there anyway we can get our cars back?

    My father spent the rest of her inheritance on drugs, these cars are the last we have of Grandpa.

    How did you end up going with this? I'm wondering if there was a practical, non-legal option to get your cars back...
