Customer Question
Hello, through Facebook messenger...

Hello, through Facebook messenger a woman offered me a donkey and I accepted. The plans were made and now she is offering to someone else. Is that a legally binding contract?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Kansas

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Not to my knowledge. A lot of work was put into preparation for the donkey.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

NO Thanks

I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Was this a contract (so you offered to pay a particular amount and she accepted your offer)?

She offered the donkey for free. We agreed to pay for shipping. It was all set up. Now she said her sister wants it.
Lawyer: P. Simmons, Attorney replied 7 months ago

Thanks
If there was an agreement for you to pay to receive the donkey, and she refuses to honor that agreement, you could sue her and ask the court to order she give you the donkey, or pay you the value of the animal

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

Hi
Experts on this site (myself) are compensated ONLY if the customer (yourself) "rate" or "accept" the answer.

Do you have more questions regarding this?

Thanks for your understanding

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
