I'm glad I live in Ohio.
I bought a Hobbit 2 weeks ago from a couple at their garage sale one county away. They bought the contents of a storage unit and both the Hobbit and a Honda Gyro were in the unit. The bikes came from Pennsylvania, and PA requires mopeds to be titled, whereas Ohio does not.
The sellers had the original title and did whatever one does with them and mailed it to me yesterday. I didn't see my name on it and it's not notorized.
I called my local BMV for advise. I was told to come fill out the usual form and have the year, make, model, and Vin number handy, which is all I've ever done, and I've bought mopeds from Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York.
I'm not even sure if Ohio checks if they are stolen.
