What coarse of action can I take against a car dealership? Posted on July 11, 2011

My husband helped out a family member with a car loan in 2008 and the car recently got repossessed. When my husband signed for the car he thought he was going to be the co-signer and that is what the car dealership told him, but when the bank sent out the invoice, it was in his name and said he was the main person on the lease. Now we are faced with the remaining balance and the family member refuses to pay. This was leased in KS but my and I husband live in CO now. Did we get scammed by the dealership with a "straw purchase scam"? Do we have legal right to sue the family member because we did not make the former payments nor did we drive the car.
