illegally repossessed??? Sounds more like dumbly sold. You should call a local attorney for state spectic advice.The seller should either be listed on the title as LEINHOLDER OR have a perfected security interest(UCC filing). If neither of these, things get shaky. Maybe that's why the seller wants the title back so badly. Call an attorney.
