    Transfer of Title date issue

    So I sold a car to someone who seemingly went off the rails, didn't mail in their half of the transfer of ownership paper, and then got a few traffic tickets, and then had the car impounded.

    I started receiving the tickets, and so then contacted the DMV and, much to my horror, my transfer of ownership form hadn't been received. This was at least a month later.

    So it seemed to me that I was thus responsible for all the tickets, but I went and entered the transfer online with the DMV. I was easily able to get out of the traffic tickets, but the towing company went to a collection agency. I've mailed them a copy I had made of the transfer of ownership form. They insist that this isn't enough, because while the sale date is listed as before the event happend, the actual transfer of ownership happend after the fact.

    It seems to me they have a point, but everyone else I talk to (including the sheriff who had the car impounded) say that I'm not responsible. What do I do? The collection agency won't take no for an answer. Do I pay them? It's about $1800.

    No bill of sale to provide a copy of?

    Yea, that's always a problem - most report to the credit bureaus.

    Thanks, I'd love to just let it sit, and not pay them, but they claim that it is gaining interest, and that it will negatively effect my credit rating.
