Just end it and start another else you do disservice to the OP and original intent. To change it because it's continually morphing means you have to change most thread titles. I am assuming that's why you want to re-title.
Disservice to OP? They sold the car, so their intent is irrelevant at this point. They don’t even need to follow the thread if they don’t want to. There is still plenty to discuss and this information concerns everyone. You can unwatch if it’s a problem for you.

The title should be changed because it’s clickbait. Implying that it’s easy to transfer a vehicle without permission and that there is “no risk” is inaccurate. I’m not saying the story is false, but implying that it’s something that anyone can easily replicate? Not buying that. A better title would be something along the lines of: “Vehicle fraudulently transferred out of account without permission.”
“Vehicle fraudulently transferred out of account without permission.”

or possibly "Vehicle account fraudulently transferred, Tesla no help"
or "Vehicle account fraudulently transferred, Tesla complicit"

The current headline is a little click bait-ish, so if the moderator wants to change it, so be it. I would leave this thread open, as there are still some unanswered questions. I am a little curious if the seller disclosed the "stolen account' situation to the buyer, but more importantly, how did the new buyer rectify the issue?

This is the type of thread that Tesla could do us all a big service and respond either specifically or generically to this issue.
