Several weeks ago a couple put a deposit on my car with the agreement that they would pick it up on July 29th. I attempted to cash the check that they wrote us and of course it bounced, but I just figured we would work that out at final sale time. We didn't hear from them when the time came for them to pick up the car, so we called them and they said they were coming after it, but again did not show up. This went on for 3 weeks. These people never once called us to tell us anything, they just continued to say they were coming and then not show up. I made numerous long distance calls to them to try to get the deal to go through. They finally officially (on Aug 20) backed out of the deal, so I tried to cash their check again and luckily it cleared this time. I feel this is how this whole deposit thing works. Today I received a phone call from them (amazing they really do know how to dial a phone) demanding that I give them their deposit money back. Let me add that going on the faith that they would buy my mustang, I in turn put a deposit on a vehicle which I have lost. Is there any way on earth that I owe these people that money back? They are already threatening to take us to court, but I don't feel too worried. Should I?
