Re: harry

If the truck is not yours you cannot sell it, unless you are your brothers agent or had his authority to do so. That being said, it is unclear why you would be signing a receipt for a vehicle that is not your s and I feel that the entire story is not here. You cannot sell what is not yours or what you do not have the authority to sell.
