In fact we are still in contact and working logistics....the insurance adjuster needs to review the case, fix the window and front bumper ding, then we're having my mechanic give it an inspection. The deal is still on pending the outcome of the inspection and any price concessions based on stuff that might need attention.

The vehicle drives fine and has no damage otherwise...apparently the spare keys were left in the glovebox in anticipation of doing our transaction the next day...oops. And a bunch of spent joints lying around the vehicle, a la Cheech and Chong.

My guess is that some punks were out doing smash-n-grabs, hit this vehicle, found the keys, and decided to go party all night.

After assuming the worst and thinking I was getting scammed or had it sold out from under me, my faith in mankind is restored.

okay, here's a question -

vehicle still has transferable warranty coverage (unlimited persons)

however, now that the vehicle history is tarnished with a 'stolen/recovered', is this going to void the warranty?

it's Toyota, btw....I can't find anything on the web....I asked the seller to contact a dealer to pose this question, thought I'd post it here in the meantime....

Tell him that you are calling the police unless the $500 is not in your hands by sun down.

True on both points, but irrelevant for all practical purposes.

Watch Judge Judy once in awhile and get her thoughts about hearsay...

"If it's not in writing, it didn't happen!"

Since hearsay is inadmissible in court as testimony...exactly.

Wouldn't it be nice if Judge Judy's law was real?

Hearsay is a statement made by a person other than the declarant offered for the truth of the statement. The most notable exception to the hearsay rules is a statement of the defendant offered against the defendant. Accordingly, the statements by the defendant as repeated in court by the plaintiff who was present when the statements were made are ADMISSABLE.

Nice try though. With the testimony of th eplaintiff supported by the ATM receipt, the plaintiff would win 100%. Lloyds of London.
