ya know if that fella who bought the pwr wagon has kicked the bucket you will be faced with a true moral predicament. do you keep the 10 grand and be quiet and resell the vehicle, or do you do the right thing and try to notify his estate. no one may actually know he bought the truck!

Several people have said that the puchaser has paid for therefore the vehicle is his. Now we are dealing with 2 states. The title was signed over to the purchaser but untill he has the title changed into his name the vehicle is still the sellers. The last owner of record is the last person who has their name on the title.

in a lot of states when you sell a vehicle you notify your DMV that you have sold it and tell them the buyers name and keep a bill of sale, you are off the hook legally. That way if the buyer does not register the vehicle you are protected if it is involved in some kind of unlawful act. CA. VA. IA are like that.

I live in VA. and yes your are supposed to file the regestration with DMV telling the purchaser but this is not always done and does not remove your name as the last title holder. Registration for state plates and Tite for vehicle ownership. Then there is nothing to prevent a purchaser from passing the title on to yet another person and never titleing the vehicle in their name.

I been following the great truck sale escapade and keeping quite but something smells fishy here.

When you agree to a price and sell somebody something, when they pay for it then it belongs to whoever paid for it.

Now Mark wants storage payment. In all reality it's not in storage, it is parked.

From a nuetral corner and not giving a flip either way then from what info I see it looks like Mark has decided to bamboozle the feller for $10,000 PLUS keep the truck.

Gosh Burr, didn't expect that from you. Why would someone buy an article from a person and not come get it in a reasonable time? You are not thinking straight

ROFLMAO. Did a light just go on, RET?

naw I feel good toolman. It's just been hectic here today getting ready for the big convention tonight.

I have plenty of room in my trailerhouse. I built a 12X12 addition on my living room for company to come over and listen to Prez Clinton. Everybody had a good time.

It looked cut and dry to me in Mark's favor too but when I followed the 2-3 different threads my opinion changed.

Willy-N    Posted 07-26-2004 at 13:24:08       [Reply]  [No Email]
Come on Burrhead I thought more of you than that, to think I want to rip him off? I want it gone since he paid for it. Been allmost a year don't you think he should talk to me or pick it up?? Something must be wrong if I spent 10 grand for a truck I would have brought it home a long time ago, but maybe some people have more money than brains! Maybe I should just park it down the street and forget about it since he paid for it, get real there may be some law that says I am still responcible for it. Enought said. Your as bad as steve. Mark H.

be nice mark!

I never had any problem with you either but I'm seeing a different side of you now Mark.

If you go back thru the comments and the response you gave it still looks like you got sick of the deal after he paid you, and now you want to keep the truck and the money.

Unless the truck is in your way I don't see what the big stink about it is.

Willy-N    Posted 07-26-2004 at 17:05:16       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yes I got sick of the deal. The deal was made in advance for it to be gone by winter which was no problem with him and it never was so he did not keep his end of the deal. At first he wanted to only give me a few hundred dollars and the rest after he got the title signed over. He got mad when I told him I needed paid in full to sign it over. Then after the deal was closed he said he was now thinking of selling it again befor he picked it up but he wanted 15,000.00 now for it since that is what it was worth. This is what I think he may be doing now and was planning to do. I told him that is fine but just pick it up by winter and he did not. That is when I told him he would have to pay storage fees to keep it here if that is what he was going to do. The deal with him changed after he paid me. I had a agreement in writing that he would have it gone by winter. He said no problem and agreed in writing. After words he changed his mind and has not contacted me since. This is why I am charging him per day to keep it here now it is the only way I know to get him to pick it up. If he had told me he was having problems getting it moved or family problems had come up I would have said no problem leave it here. But he is just using me for his profet and I am left holding the truck for safe keeping. And your right I don't like the deal now and do not want it here any more and if it is then he can pay to keep it here. I am not tring to keep the truck and the money. I am tring to get him to pick it up like we agreed to in the begining. All he has to do is have it deliverd to N. Carolina no big deal around 1,000.00 to 1,500.00. I offerd him a long time ago I could take it to a place in town that was coverd during the winter to store it at if he wanted me to. But he did not want to pay for that. I figure now by charging him he will have to follow thru with his part of the deal, I know I have. If he has died then I will turn it over to the family no charge. Other wise rent is due as far as I am concerned, he changed the rules in the middle of the game and I became hard core over it. Mark H.

Okay my mistake. I never saw where there was an agreement before hand. The post that had my goat was about there being no written agreement and was from someone and was not your responce.

I read it bassackwards and do ask you to please forgive me.

Willy-N    Posted 07-26-2004 at 18:34:11       [Reply]  [No Email]
I probley should have gave all the details but left them out because I was tring to figure out how to deal with just one of them. This has become a long story and hope it has a happy ending for someone? I have had over 1200 sales on eBay with out one neg in 4 years. This is the first time I have had a deal like this go wrong on Ebay. I have had several people just not pay or never respond befor but nothing like this, what a nightmare to try to figure it out. I am at he end of my rope on this deal now. This is why I filled you in with many more of the details thinking you might understand what is realy going on. You have a good one. I am sure it will work out. No problem here. Mark H.

just curious    Posted 07-26-2004 at 19:09:33       [Reply]  [No Email]
what in the world do you buy on Ebay that adds up to 1200 sales? Do you do a lot of trading items? Just wondering

Willy-N    Posted 07-26-2004 at 20:51:15       [Reply]  [No Email]
I mostly sell probley 1/8th of the items I bought. Selling on eBay is what I do to offset my income working at home. There was a time I was doing allmost 10,000.00 a month in sale of tractor parts but that got old taking a tractor apart every week and boxing it up into little boxes along with cleaning all the parts too. I sell what I find for good deals around here. I bought a lot of stuff for my Water Tender also and saved a bunch! Mark H.

I hope it all turns out good on the truck deal.

you will be faced with a true moral predicament

What are you talking about? The man bought & paid for it it's HIS or his family's. I have a tractor here I sold over 2 years ago on ebay The buyer sent the money & I haven't heard from him since. Several people have ask about buying it I give them his number & he tells them he won't sell it. We start it & move it once in a while. But I wouldn't think about trying to beat him out of it!I have a backhoe here I sold several months ago the guy sent the money & e mailed twice a day about comming after it as soon as his check cleared ( witch it it did) I haven't heard from him in over 3 months. I bought a tractor from a man inm IN. several years ago when I picked it up he was showing me around in the barn was a IH pump jack like I'd never saw. I ask about buying he said I sold it to a man in Ks. 9 years ago He paid for it & I have never heard from him again It's not for sale it is sold

Doc    Posted 07-26-2004 at 07:49:03       [Reply]  [No Email]
I'm sorry, I see no moral predicament. The truck belongs to the buyer.

Willy-N    Posted 07-26-2004 at 07:58:42       [Reply]  [No Email]
Your correct Doc. It is his since he paid for it. Now since he paid for it why hasn't he picked it up or contacted me? That is what the letters are for. If he has died then the estate will probley open them or they will be returned. I now have 2 people going by his house who live near him to check. Not much more I can do. I will know soon. Mark H.

deadcarp    Posted 07-26-2004 at 07:23:40       [Reply]  [No Email]
Okay i'll weigh in on this issue - i'd hesitate to drive the thing off the place for fear of mishap and the ensuing liabilities. I'd also hesitate to spend my own fortune storing it. The thing is - whatever the deal or outcome - it's his rig now. Another possibility is that the guy's going thru divorce and trying to scatter a few assets. I think this situation is gonna require registered letters so you have proof of notification etc. :)

Willy-N    Posted 07-26-2004 at 08:03:55       [Reply]  [No Email]
That sure is the way I look at it. I am afraid to drive it other then just moving it around on the place that is for sure! If he has died and he was a Older guy who was telling me he was working 2 jobs and very stressed out when he bought it I will find out soon. If he has moved and left no forwarding address that sure makes it hard to deal with him. Time will tell soon. Mark H.

Your doing just fine Will. Keep headed in the direction your going.

Prior to his 12th birthday, a boy received a letter from is uncle saying that he didn't know what the youngster would like as a present. Would it be all right if he sent him a check for $25? The boy wrote back: "Dear Uncle Harold, Thank you for thinking about me. I know I would like anything you sent me, but you don't have to send me a present. And $25 is too much money. P.S. mother made me write this letter.

This is a real life mystery story.
Willy, be sure to let us know what your friends discover when they go to check on this missing buyer.
It is like a serial story; I am waiting for the mystery solution now.

Willy-N    Posted 07-26-2004 at 08:16:17       [Reply]  [No Email]
Me too! In my 53 years of life I have never heard of anyone doing this befor. I should know something soon and post a update. It is very strange and will probly have a stranger ending. Mark H.

This is not advice, but was a situation that posed a dilemma. We sold a nice portable storage building, and the fellow paid cash for it. (This was in a small town where everyone knew everyone else, at least by sight). He was to come and have it moved within 2 weeks.

Time passed, and we decide to sell our home and relocate, and 7 months after the sale, the building still set, and not a word from the man who bought it. We sent him a letter and told him we were selling out, and he must pick up the building. Not a word. By the time the house sold, it had been well over a year. We'd told the buyer the situation, that the building didn't go with the house.

This single young man farmed long hours, and we couldn't catch him at home. Follow-up letter told him he had 30 days to pick up the building, or it would belong to the new owners of the property. Gave the new owner a copy. Not a word. That was over 5 years ago, and he never came by, called, or picked up the building he'd paid several hundred dollars for. Had he asked, we'd have returned his money, for it was a good building, and we had others who wanted it.

Sometimes, people are just funny.
