how do i go about buying a used car if person has not payed it off?

I am in Georgia, I am trying to buy a 09 civic ex but the person still has not payed it off to the dealership. I requested a loan through USAA and am using the whole 13000 for it. How do I go about making sure i do not get scammed? Usaa wont give the check to me, it has to be to the person im buying it off of

Update:

    If the individual has not paid off the loan, it isn't their vehicle to sell, it belongs to the lien holder.

    If you hand him a check in his name for that amount, you had best be handed a clear title when you do because USAA is going to want it immediately.

    Tell him to call you once he has the clear title and you'll talk about it then. Do not deal him otherwise.

    I can't think of a way...

    There's no way you can have clear title to it, until the lien is satisfied, a lien release letter comes,

    and the title is obtained from the state by the seller so he can sign it over to you.

    It takes time... weeks in the best of worlds.

    Look at some other cars...

    This is a deal you would do with a trusted family member.

    You would pay off the loan and wait for the lien release.

    Only the owner can go get a clean title, not you.

    Once the seller gets the title he can sell it to another person.

    Even if you got your money back, you were taken for a ride.

    Have USAA talk to the sellers bank.

    If they cant work it out between them, find another car. They probably CAN if they want to. Would need a notarized affidavit from the seller so their bank would be ok sending the title to USAA.

    No taking over loans. Must be new loan.
