Is Car Dealer at fault

I purchased a vehicle through a local dealer a few years back. It was suppossed to be in my name with my brother-in-law as a co-signer. I made all the payments & he & I signed an agreement stating that I was responsible for the payments, insurance, etc. on the vehicle. It was totaled in December 2000. I went back to the same dealer to get another vehicle & found out that my name was not on the contract after making 18 months worth of payments. I submitted 7 months of cancelled checks. I got another vehicle through them & they transferred all the information from the first vehicle & added my name on the new loan. The man in the finance dept. who printed out the papers told my husband to sign my brother-in-law's name since he was not present. Everywhere he signed he put his initials to show that his brother was not the originial signer. The bank has repossed, alleging fraud & want to prosecute. Who is at fault.
