Vehicle Titles
Repossession

If you purchased a car and did not give the bank the title then sold the car and did not pay it off so they came to repossess it but you have no car and no money can you be arrested for theft?

You cannot be arreseted it is a civil matter they can seek monetary compensation via the civil courts. I'd like to have an attorney look at this question. Not paying and hiding the car from repossession is not a crime, but if you sold the car while there was an outstanding lein, most jurisdictions have something to say about "conversion of secured property". In other words, it is usually illegal to sell something you do not own.

No... you cant keep it..Money orders are like personal checks,they have traceable numbers and require a (Pay to the order of)Name and a signature to cash the money order..The person who purchased that money order and lost it can easily have that money ordered canceled and be issued a new one..making the one you have completely void...If you cash the money order before that happens the person who purchased it can easily have it tracked down and the unauthorized person arrested for theft and/or check fraud...Also there is a chance that the money order was stolen in a burglary and its has already been canceled,but if you try to cash said money order it will alert the police and you could be arrested for possesion of stolen property and attempted bank fraud..turn it to where it came from or rip it up...

No. They can only repossess the power unit they were sent to repossess - they cannot take the trailer. At that point, it's theft. Especially if it's loaded.

You can be arrested in certain jurisdictions for theft of services or theft. This is both a criminal and civil matter as a business can still sue you for the theft and win to recover the losses.

You took a car and the Title was in the spouses name. If you are not a co-signer and your name is not on the Title he can take you to court as well for any damages or depreciation you made to the car. You can be arrested for theft. If you hold no legal ownership of the car, it is theft.
