Before anyone jump in and tell me im stupid....I KNOW... Found a van on gumtree. guy had been posting on there 2 years....he also had a website...so felt quite comfortable handing over £250 deposit for a £5k van........to be delivered Monday for £100. (yes unseen only photos). I text and call him about 10 times on Monday. everytime he said am dealing with it, same again Tuesday.....this time I called another number off website, the guy answered sounded very simple, telling me that the truck that was taking van from Guilford to Chelmsford had broken down. Today I texted the 1st guy saying, I want van here by 4pm or will have to take this further. He text back saying take further, the van is in guliford if you want to pick up, I made it clear to him that I can not pick it up....he said my loss then.....I have told him I am willing to wait a few days to get truck fixed, but now he is not replying to text or calls....ffs. Why don't people just be honest. if he was honest in the 1st place I would have said "yeah I can wait" but he lied everytime I called him.... Not sure what to do next. don't really wanna lose£250, but cant get to Guilford either....cowboy me thinks. !
