    Where do I stand? 9th Oct 16 at 2:24 PM
    Hi guys,

    I sold my 2nd hand computer on gumtree last month to someone for 50

    a month after she brought it off me she has text me saying its stopped working, and the hard drive is faulty.

    She is demanding some of the money back.

    Im sorry, but this isn't my problem? It was working fine before I sold it, plus it was working ok for her for a month.

    If you buy a car 2nd hand and after a month it breaks, you don't go back to who you brought it off, you take it to the garage.

    What do I say?

    (But I didn't know it was faulty, it wasn't when I sold it)
