OTIS said:Even if that were the case, considering the nature of any deposit, being that most are meant as a way to ensure final sale (reserving it against other would-be buyers, and thus increasing risk of sale for the seller) would it be so surprising that its return was forfeited if the buyer refused pay for the item at the established price -the price agreed upon during the giving of said deposit? Although I can understand the contempt toward a steadfast deposit principle in such an informal forum of sale like the Tribe B&S area, at the same time exploiting the informality to besmirch the seller and cover what seems like a botched bait & switch low-ball attempt is much more slimy to me.
That being said, Caveat emptor -which of course is an active rule in this forum.
To avoid any ill will, I refunded the deposit in full on Tuesday.kuba said:ok fine. if it was sold to the other person, and since you're such a well-to-do business man, i think it's time to settle the matter of the fully refundable deposit. stand by your "policy".
