Yes Colonel SB there are exceptions to every rule LOL. I would not hesitate in certain cases such as the example above, but as a general rule of thumb, NO WAY! Call me hypocrit! In some situations deposits are required by a seller just so they know how serious the intentions of the potential buyer is. Its also nice to have money down in those first come, first served type scenes involving rare specimens to guarantee getting one also. I was refering more to the people "that need the $", but are counting on things to "happen" to "come clean" in the end. Putting themselves & investors both in a bad spot relying on things to happen in order to make good on deals. Mark I.
