    mental man - buying car.

    ok as some may know i have my car for sale and it has rear damage. anyway its advertised in a few places and i get a call from somone and we arrange a viewing which was earlier on today. when the 2 men turn up i get a bad feeling straight away just the look of them (you may or may not no what i mean.) anyway we go through the car, start the engine etc and they are very happy and say they will leave a deposit of £150 and pay rest tuesday so i agree and he hands over the money i check it and half the notes are fake lol so i tell him and he acts all "oh sorry mate i didnt know" anyway he gives me rreal notes and away he goes.

    2 hours later he phones and says he dosent want car now and wants his deposit back i say its not possible and he then hangs up. 10 minutes go by and he turns up at my house and threatens me so i go out there and tell him to "f**k off or ill wrap this baseball bat round his head" he walks away threatning to come back and blow up the car etc bad thing is i cant move the car lol some people eh?.....

    sounds to me he was trying his luck to buy the car with fake cash, you noticed so he had to cough up some real dough but he didn't actually wanna pay for the car. some people are scum these days and i understand what you did by taking the deposit and keeping it because thats how deposits work however, you never know how far threats go these days people are complete idiots and will go to extreme levels for no reason what soever to get or do what they want.

    id come down and give u a hand mate, but your a bit far from me. just ring the rozzers and say u have seen peolpe trying to enter your car and that you think they will come back again, they will pop round once in a while and see if theres any1 about. that way they know about it and if anything happens they no u didnt just torch is to do an insurance job.

    Why not give him the refund back? saves you a kicking or a petrol bomb through you window?

    IS £150 really worth a petrol bomb through your window of your family home or a kicking?

    If so £150 must mean alot more to you than me.

    This is why when i sell my cars i never take deposits, the car is still for sale till the FULL balance is in my hand, counted and checked if its real
