Default bad buyer on gl4x4????

i am currently selling a truck on here for my dad. a persom wants to buy it we shall call him bob. they stike a deal downpayment then weekly payments if any are late he keeps money and no deal UNLESS bob calls ahead both agree.

so bob wants the truck, my father works out a deal with him deposit was to be 200 he only sends 180 and 4 days late. wtf

so this payment (today) is 6 days late and 30 bucks short out of 120(he didnt call and wouldent answer phone) and he lied about when he put it in the mail(post mark says he sent it 3 days after when he said)

today being wed we got a 2nd payment late and the next will be due tommorow (thur)




SO should we call him and say wtf guy deals a deal if you cant stick to it you loose

I've never sold a vehicle without all the money up front.

The guy broke the deal. If he can't even call and explain himself, I say deals off and you keep the money for your trouble.

Fukc 'em People like that tend to lie and deceive more and more as time goes by. Catching him in a lie by postmark is funnay though. Sounds like the ground work of the deal was pretty clear cut. Cut him off now, as he gets deeper into payments it may be harder for you to do so.

To be honest, how much are these short payments costing you?

Let it drag on a while. If he is sending you cash then it continues to add up regardless if it is short or not. Few more times being short cancel the deal. You will have more money for your time and effort.

If Bob does not have the truck then just give him a stern warning. Let him know that if this how things are going to start then you are thinking about keeping the money and calling off the deal.



I have a "buddy" that still owes me $600 for a car he resold a month after "buying" the car from me! I'm pissed. I knew I should have kept the title for the car.

If he cant keep up on his end of the bargain starting with the down payment and then again on the second payment he will not get any better.

He has no money and is a liar.


You should just give him his money back and forget about the deal before he really pisses you/your dad off.

I just did head gaskets for a friend, she gave me $500 and owed $200 and said I would get it Monday( one week later) I said OK.

Two weeks after the due date I text her and say WTF, where is my money.

She responds "Do you really need it now?"

I respond "Yes my dogs need to eat" lol

She brought me my money a few days later and tells me she had this and that bill due and she was off work for a week. Why is it my problem?

Be a man of your word and pay up! Or GTFO!!!!

Okay.



I think the terms of your deal were douchebaggery in the first place. Weekly payments and if he's late he loses everything? Maybe you should try being the white man here.

The guy doesn't have the vehicle, he doesn't have the title, and he is paying you. In this economy, WTF are you complaining about?

how old is bob? and what are his "reasons" for late/short payments? as long as he pays up, I see nothing wrong - he hasn't taken delivery as of yet, so its no skin off your back.

I would just try to keep the line of communication open for sure. Let him know that you are worried that it is becoming a trend with him being late and insufficient. If he gets an attitude or refuses to stay in touch with you, too bad for him. Do you have the arrangements in writing? If so, does it say anything about what you will do if he doesn't hold up his end? I have held a vehicle for someone before from here and it worked out for me. Everything was discussed up front. There were delays, but I knew that may be a possibility up front. I would not do that for just anyone though, he had a flawless and extensive itrader rating.

No, we flame them for stealing shit and breaking the law. You're all about a deal that you constructed which would enable you to steal the buyer's money and have an excuse to do it. Shit happens on a daily basis in people's lives and they do what they need to do. All this thread does is teach me to never do business with you or your Dad.
