My business partner and I purchased a vehicle on December 6, 2012 that was advertised on a national forum. After speaking to the vehicle advertiser/poster CJ Brossett on the phone, he stated to bring a cashier's check for $39,000 made out in his name in order to purchase the vehicle. He stated that he did not owe much to Ford Motor Credit and would have it paid off and title sent to him to be signed, then sent to us.
We met CJ at his Trailer Park Chopper Shop the morning of the 6th. We took the vehicle for a test drive and agreed to purchase the vehicle.
We went to his office at Brossett Corp on 1300 Hudson Lane Suite 7 Monroe, LA to sign a Bill of Sale and hand over the cashier's check. We return to his shop where we then loaded the vehicle onto our trailer and proceeded on the eight hour drive back home.
After a few weeks, we contacted CJ about the title, and were told that his secretary was in charge of paying it off. A week later, still nothing was done. Ford Motor Credit was contacted. The vehicle was behind on payments and a single payment was made to Ford to keep the vehicle from going into repossession. We also found out that the name on the loan is James Brossett, CJ Brossett's father.
James David Brossett was contacted, and stated that he was unaware that CJ had sold the vehicle. James stated that he would have something figured out by Tuesday January 29, 2013 to pay the remaining lien balance. He now states that he will need more time in order to pay the vehicle off. The cashier's check given to CJ has been cashed and spent. The vehicle should have been paid in full nearly two months ago with our money to purchase it. Our money was stolen from CJ and was not used to pay off the loan.
Legal action against James D. Brossett and possible criminal action against CJ Brossett will be taken in order to receive the title.
