    Should I pay back a deposit left for my car? 9th Nov 09 at 3:28 PM
    H All

    I sold my car to a guy (a policeman of all people!) 10 days ago.

    He left me a deposit for 200 and said that he was waiting for a cheque to clear.

    He called me this morning basically using every excuse in the book. He said that he wanted to do the transaction with my partner (even though my partner works away). I told him this - he has spoken to my partner a couple of times etc.

    Anyway, I am just babbling now - basically do I have to pay him the deposit back? I have had 5 calls since and told the people that the car is sold and deleted it off autotrader.

    I am just annoyed as I waited 10 days and then on the morning he was to collect the car, he cancelled.

    Many thanks
