Thank you all for your input & suggestions. Since others out there have also experienced this same problem, I thought I'd compile a list of the steps I'm taking so that they can reference it, do the same, & perhaps improve all our chances of getting our money from Car Cannibal.
If Car Cannibal has your vehicle, & you haven't been paid for it, here are some things you can do (this list is writen under the assumtion that you are from a state other than Oklahoma, where Car Cannibal is located):
-contact your local police depatment & Oklahoma City PD (you may not be able to report your vehicle as stolen, as most places will consider it a civil matter [i.e. breach of contract], but you can still file a report with the details, thus adding to your paper trail)
-file complaints with the following Attorney Generals' offices: U.S., Oklahoma, & your state
-file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/
-file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) | File a Complaint
-report Car Cannibal to the Oklahoma Used Motor Vehicles & Parts Commission, Used Motor Vehicle and Parts Commission
(apparently Car Cannibal isn't even licensed to sell used cars or parts in Oklahoma)
-contact the Department of Transpotation for your state (to see if you can prevent Car Cannibal for filing for a lost title based on the Bill of Sale)
-take Car Cannibal to civil court & sue for your money (see post by thedugger on the following forum for details: RangeRovers.net • View topic - Anyone else have trouble getting paid by Car Cannibal?
Also, I've been in contact with Vallery Brown at "The Oklahoman" newspaper. She did a story back in February 2009 about this same thing happening to Chad Brown of Michigan (here is a link to the blog about it, the story isn't avaiable anymore without a subscription: Donít cannibalize my car | WatchDog
). She told me this is a pattern for Ryan Richardson. Please contact her if you are in this situation -- the more we can get our stories out there, the less likely Ryan will be able to continue doing this to people. She is super nice & wants to be able to help. Her email is: VBrown@opubco.com
Thanks, again, guys.
