Good morning. This is a breach of contract. A buyer in this situation should sendseller a certified, return receipt requested letter detailing the situation anddemanding that seller agree to rescind the transaction and return buyer's money in total within a short specified period of time. The buyer would inform sellerthat if buyer's demand is not timely complied with, buyer will have no choicebut to file a suit againstseller for damages. The buyer would want to make sure to specifically mentionthat buyer will be filing this claim not only as a breach of contract case, butalso as a deceptive tradepractice action, which will entitle buyer not only to actual damages, but alsoanadditional amount equal to 3 times that as punitive damages. That shouldprovide plenty of incentive to comply with buyer's demands; but, if it doesnot,buyer should file the suit.
