    WOW!!

    First thing - I am NOT AT ALL SURPRISED that you did the right thing, Tim!! You are that kind of guy. And, I think that most of us on this board would have done the right thing.

    Next, it's sad that the auction house and the selling organization were apparently ready to work with you until the lawyers got involved. Very sad!! Can/will the dealership do anything to work with you on this? I'd think that they've already gotten something from their insurance company. Maybe their insurance company can work something out with you.

    What about your own homeowner's insurance? It's been years since any of my business law classes pertaining to conveyable title, ownership rights, etc., but you essentially bought something that you had a reasonable right to assume had clear title and now it's been basically "stolen" from you.

    Hopefully the perp ends up in jail for a long while for this one! But, probably not.

    I can't like that, Tim! You should be proud you aren't the kind of person who would keep the tractor without reporting it. I know your character is a big part of your YouTube popularity.

    I hope you get some compensation and that the Ruruitans step up and do the right thing. I guess if they don't, Katriel's monthly implement allowance will have to suffer.

    Wow, that is absolutely crazy. I hope that it works out for you in the end. I just watched the video about you getting a new machine, but not having room for it.

    Details here:
    You've obviously done a lot of homework, so this may redundant, BUT a formal complaint against the auctioneer through your state's Attorney General should be much faster and cheaper than a formal lawsuit. Once the stage is set to show the likely outcome of a legal proceeding, you have a lot more leverage to force negotiations for an equitable settlement (or at least arbitration). I found this link:

    PLA: File a Complaint
    To file a complaint with the Indiana Attorney General click here for the form.

    I agree. However, I am not complaining about the quality and suitability of the good.
    They SAID they were selling me something. Turns out, they had nothing to sell.
