By Stan making this vehicle unavailable to others to purchase, and taking theirdeposit even without a receipt it entered them into a verbal agreement to hold the car for a day, pendingpurchasing. With the understanding from Stan the Salesman without the knowledge of the two buyers;they asked for the deposit back after they decided that they were not going to purchase the car. Whenthis statement occurred, Stan the Salesman prompted the agreement that made between the twoduring this period to put a deposit down to buy the car.

We also know the legal counsel would be involved over a $100.00
