Exclamation I just dont get some people...

About two weeks ago i had a guy put a deposit down on a boat i was selling, £1000 in cash put into my account, all good, come the day he was ment to collect it ..nothing!, tryed to call him..nothing, not even connecting!, emailed him and email sent back " return to sender "...

Now i dunno about you guys but damn, £1000 is a lot of cash-money to me!, so what ever is up with some people...this has left me in a bit of a stick as you can imagine!

Thoughts welcome...

Get it changed into penny's then see how high you can stack them before they fall over.

The scale's slightly different but a guy did this to me when I was selling my Jeep. (gave me £100 cash as deposit on an £850 Jeep). He seemed dead keen, even went off to the Autobank to get the cash. Said he'd come back on Thursday but never turned up. His mobile rang but kept going to answerphone after a few rings. I think he was avoiding me.

I stuck the £100 cash in my safe & sold the car a week later to someone else. Decided I would keep his cash for a month or two & if he didn't turn up I'd spend it. If he turned up with a sob story I'd give it back.

Never heard from him. Did he change his mind & write off his deposit? Did he die? Was he arrested? Weird!
