How do I proceed to get a deposit back
I saw someone on Gumtree fixing and building up machines. I requested 4 machines and paid a 50% deposit. Turns out after two delays of a week each the person does not have the product and is not giving back the deposit. How do proceed to get the deposit back
If he misrepresented or lied to you then it is a criminal case of fraud. You must lay a charge at the police station. You can at the same time get a lawyer to sue him for the return of the money. Inform him that you will be laying a criminal charge if he does not immediately refund your money with interest.
