I'll try and make this brief. The original owner purchases a jeep. If he financed it, it would have a lien on it. The title would have a title number (example) xxxxx307. The same jeep had a duplicate title issued to it two years later, title # xxxxx405 owner number 2. The third owner of this vehicle has a lien on it, with the original title number xxxxx307. Something doesn't look right. I can kind of understand the duplicate title (original could have been lost) but owner #3 has the original title number, but it even states "duplicate". I don't understand this.
