YES,in most states it IS a felony to conceal mortaged property.It doesnt matter if it is the debtor , a loved one, or a stranger. If you could just hide a car and not pay for it, think how many cars would NEVER be paid for. Wouldnt that be nice? FREE CARS.. not in this lifetime. Just pay the notes or give up the car.
