    Who was the notary? Have you contacted them to see what ID was used?

    Depends largely on what you WANT to do.

    could criminal charges can be filed against him??
    Could they?? Yes, if the statute of limitations for forgery has not expired. However, your first step to this would be to contact the police.

    and is the sale legal?? and if it is, can i still get the money from it??
    Too many variables to answer either of those. A court could void the sale, but that would take a lawsuit and favorable ruling.
    Any 'money' you might get would have to come from your ex as the buyers have no fault in this.

    I suggest you take the proof of your claims to a local attorney who can review all the facts and advise you based on the answers you provide.
