Local used car salesman arrested

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. -

A used car salesman who continues to pop up on the I-Team radar screen has now been arrested. And his arrest answers lingering questions for angry car buyers.

Brigette Brown paid $3,500 for a 2003 Nissan Altima in September. September 2012.

"(But you paid for it?) I paid for it," said Brigette Brown.

But, she still doesn't own the car.

"Can't get a title," said the South Fulton County resident.

She says in a recently filed DeKalb County police complaint that Jay Lamin sold the car's title to a title pawn shop then he sold the car to her. That's why she couldn't get the Nissan's title. That's an obvious problem, but the cute car her daughter was driving to school for more than two years was caught up in something bigger than that.

Just days after she filed a complaint with police that same Nissan landed Jay Lamin in the Gwinnett detention center. The title pawn company actually pressed charges over the car's title. Another title pawn shop did the same. The Gwinnett solicitor says she believes Lamin takes out loans on car titles then sells the car. She tells the I-Team Lamin then refuses to pay back the loan or return the car

Just recently the I-Team met up with DeKalb County resident Joshua Tittle. Same story. He bought a car from Mr. Lamin but tried for months to get the title. Finally, after the I-Team pressed the used car salesman about where the title, is Jay Lamin gave the Tittles their money back.

And after Brigette Brown got fed up and went to the police, she says Jay Lamin bonded out of jail and returned her money too. Then, he took the car she never owned anyway.

    The notion of 'Keeping up with the Jones' is not new, but there is a new pressure coming at you. Peer pressure - whether you're 13 or 33 - is a powerful thing. Now throw in social media and you have what an Atlanta counselor calls 'Keeping up with the Jones' on steroids. And if you're not careful that can get costly.
