I think they were led to believe that they are entitled to refund because Sam Salesman said they would receive it back. I would suggest these steps for the couple: 1. Don’t be in a rush to make a deposit. Always shop around. 2. Get the contract in writing. This way there are no surprises when making a deal. 3. Read the contract carefully for fine print before signing. 4. Negotiate with the salesman. Let them know what you can and can’t afford. 5. Always use a credit card. You can always cancel a payment through the credit card company. 6. Always contact a lawyer when in doubt. Consumers should also contact their local Better Business Bureau. In conclusion, I do think that they entered into a contract when he gave his $100 deposit but the fact that the salesman lied about returning his deposit is something that always happens.
