I was given a check to hold a car for a person until the title came in. Well the owner informed me a week later that he decided he didn't want it. I told him I missed 2 oppertunities to sell the vehicle previously and instead of keeping the 200$ deposit would only take 100$ and call it even. I told him that everybody knows that when you give a holding fee and you decide not to go through with it you loose the holding fee. I went and deposited the check into my account and it bounced 4 days later because of a stop payment they had put on it and then ended up bouncing 6 more transactions of mine costing me a total of over $250 dollars not including the deposit fee. The check stated that it was a deposit on the jeep other then that there wasn't any "paper work". It was one of those verbal agreement deals. I am thinking about taking them to small claims court but want to make sure in advance that it is worth it and if I even have a leg to stand on.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
