Verbal contracts are criminally enforceable.

(When involving theft/fraud)

See my exwife example below. Her behavior caused me to end up over $1000 in various bounced check charges. I explained the situation to the bank, and was very clear that I had given verbal permission for the $200. The bank said, she was the one who committed fraud, cleared my account problems and pressed charges against her. She was subsequently convicted.

And in fact, the person dealing with it at the bank is the VERY person who gave me that car analogy.

If I had had a choice, I would not have wanted her to get in that much trouble over it, but what she did hurt me quite a bit at the time, and that became the banks decision.
