Customer Question

hi ! I have a gentlemen's agreement for the purchase of a vehicle. the agreement was with my ex employer who agreed £100 pound weekly would be paid until the sum of £8500 was cleared, I was unable to secure a written confirmation of the agreement as he was always indisposed . since my redundancy with him I have continued with the agreement even though its become hard to make contact with , just recently the tax expired and was unable to tax vehicle, I spoke with dvla explained that although I have been in possession of vehicle for nearly 15months I was advised that the vehicle should be in my name .I finally reached him and forwarded to him the amount for six months tax I also asked for green slip to log book he was reluctant to forward on .however due to lack of communication and only having 4 payments left to make I applied for a dvla log book. now that he has received a tax refund he has now replied to me stating that I have acted illegally and he will be notifying dvla of the fraugilant actions. I have proof of payment to which the bank has confirmed as from the 19/12/14 the final payment will be paid. have I acted illegally?
