I understand your frustration about being lied to!
Here is my view:
I would cut a little slack to the kid, if the $30.00 is going to break you, you shouldn't do payment plans. I would definately explain to him that timely payments and communication is very important to you and if he can't follow through and communicate like an adult then return his money (minus deposit) now and put it back up for sale.

Or if you think the frustration isn't worth it, I would return all his money and end it!
Sometimes the aggrevation of making a deal work just ain't worth it!

You going to let a few psi out of the tires while you are at it? You know, for that better traction you were talking about earlier

Exactly.

life goes on
its happening to me right Now, Few months ago, I sold my 4 door 1 ton to my sons best friend, who is like my 2nd Son. He told me he would give me 500 down and AT LEAST 150 a week until paid off. I did this so I could get my trans rebuilt in my Jeep and If I go wheeling he goes with us, so it's still like having my tow rig as we are going to use his...but i sold it for 1000 less then I wanted... well 2 payments of 100 dollars because of rain days at work I said that was fine for the 50 a week off...then nothing the last 5 weeks because he has been missing work because he has been sick and docs are stumped and switching meds and costing him cash...I told him to not worry...well the other day he told me do I want it back because Mom is loaning him money to by a smaller cheaper on gas 2wd standard cab. so now I get my truck back on reverse payment plans minus the busted front windshield so I get to fix it and sell it for more.... not a big deal still helped me out of a spot and got my truck back to boot

I don't sell much here, so not much itrader, but I've bought annd sold plenty of stuff through classifieds and craigslist, so here goes.....

Payment plans almost always end up the way you describe, I've even been on the buyer end and suddenly not be able to afford the payments (I was also in my 20's then). As to no calls, it's a bit embarrassing to say to someone you owe money to that you don't have it. Based on this I say:

1) Anyone who wants to make payments, has no money. Like I said, been on both sides of that equation.

2) People without money short pay or skip payments.

3) This is the worst part, the often genuinely want to make the payment, but bit off more than they can chew.


What to do?

1) A bit late for this, but cash n carry is my motto now. If selling, I will hold something for a set amount of time (usually less than a week, i.e. next payday) and tell others it will be available if deal falls through on that date.

2) Has he paid a significant portion, or is it a drop in the bucket? If the truck was selling for $600 I'd ride it out, but if he still owes you a grand or two, refund his cash and re-list the truck. Even on time, a $2000 truck at $100 a week is going to take almost a third of a year to pay off.

3) Next time I want to make extended payments on something, I'm buying from Spro-Mart.

Getting ready to do it again. I will get paid every fucking cent.

NSF is NSF.
The crime is the same, whether a payment or full price.
Try and tell the judge it doesn't count because it was only a payment

well its thursday and no payment he called to say he didnt make much money this week. but he will send what he can when he gets back from a trip (it is a legit trip that a person cant really backout on) so we will see


as to checks ive watched it happen if you bounce a few checks as payments the court dosnt see that as intending to steal it/screw them over

if you write one check for the full amount and it bounces and you skate with the stuff that is theft and a felony

The only bad check I ever got was from my ex wife.
But I have had them say "don't deposit that next one for a couple more days". It's all good.

Unless you're good friends with the guy, I'd never do a payment plan. And even the friend deals are sketchy sometimes.

Didn't read every page, so I didn't get the total owed...but, i'd set a date for full payment, maybe 30 days. Based on your terms, he's already defaulted...so this is one fair last chance to settle up.
