Customer Question

Purchased a vehicle on line thru E-Bay, the description was vague, so I texted the gentlemen more questions, he texted back the answers. Know that I have purchased the vehicle it is not what the man said it was, do I have any recourse in making the man take back the vehicle?

Good morning. This is a breach of contract. A buyer in this situation should send

seller a certified, return receipt requested letter detailing the situation and
demanding 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 seller
that if buyer's demand is not timely complied with, buyer will have no choice
but to file a suit against

seller for damages. The buyer would want to make sure to specifically mention
that buyer will be filing this claim not only as a breach of contract case, but
also as a deceptive trade

practice action, which will entitle buyer not only to actual damages, but also

additional amount equal to 3 times that as punitive damages. That should

provide plenty of incentive to comply with buyer's demands; but, if it does

buyer should file the suit.
