Update on getting refund on used car,please advise

hi guys
Following me buying the wife a used car that i was unhappy with i backed the guy in a corner and he has agreed to collect the viehicle and also give a full refund.

However he wants to collect the car and give a cheque upon said collection!!
I dont think so, any advice on response or gen advice.

Seem to have him agreed to a refund but dont want to be jacked over on the final turn.

Many thanks

Everyone has been in shape,but not everyone is IN shape,its about where your going not where you have been.

    Exactly my thinking Rich.

    I paid with part ex my car which he has sold and the rest on a credit card for the extra protection,owt i buy over £100 goes on the card.

    Thanks guys

    I always thought you had to be refunded the way it was paid for? Might be wrong and im going on what it was like when i worked in a shop.
     
    Obviously you cant get your car back though....and yes he will bounce the cheuque.

    He disputed my points raised but offered a full refund via Email.

    I was thinking wait for cleared funds but wondered if any other options

    Cheers

    A cheque is little more than a promise to pay.
     
    The only true 'promise to pay' thats worth anything is printed on bank notes mate! lol

    I would contact your credit card company mate and see what they advise.
     
    If the guy as the means to accept credit cards then he could refund via that system?
     
    Is the guy a motor trader 'proper' so to speak?

    I think that its law that he must repay you in the method that you paid with mate. Im pritty sure its part off the anti money laundering laws that are quite solid these days. I would press him on this or better still contact your credit card provider.
     
    TBH Im 100% sure he must repay you this way when I think about it.

    I would put it in the hand of your credit card company mate and let them deal with it. They got the % kickback from the sale and thus its realy their problem to at least get the talks going.

    Thing is only part of the sale was on the card, so unsure they will refund pursue the remainder.

    If they refund part he can bloomin whistle for the motor till he coughs upnthe rest


    Thanks guys

    Its clear the alarm bells are ringing mate. let the credit card company spook him and keep the car well secured mate just incase this crank has spare keys etc.
     
    Good luck with it mate and let us know how it pans out..
