Nampa, ID asked in Consumer Law for Idaho

Q: I sold 5th wheel and took deposit with agreement to take payments. She took possession and now says nothing works.

I was unaware of things not working except need batteries, propane, gas for generator. That's all I was told about it. She has taken possession, now says nothing works and said she won't pay me any money. She has it somewhere I don't know about and she blocked texts, but has sent me horrible, vile messages through facebook. I am not sure if I go to police. She said she will sell it without title to get her money.

A: You will need to have an attorney write her a demand letter. The issue is whether you promised to sell her the 5th wheel, with "only batteries" needed, or if you said, "everything works fine," etc. What promises did you make to her prior to selling it? Those are the types of issues that a court or a jury will need to determine. It you sold it to her "As Is," then you're good to go! She will, of course, tell whomever, that you made all kinds of promises as to the condition of the 5th wheel, and that it was based on your "lies" that she bought it, and now that she bought it, she has been damaged (CLASSIC FRAUD) alleged.

Good luck to you!
