So, about the second story I was going to mention in my last post. (If you’re friends with me on FB, then you’re probably familiar with this).
Anyway, so I sold my car on the 8th to this guy (he’s a foreign exchange student at a local university), and not even two days later he sent me an email saying that he wanted to basically exchange the car back. ie: I “give him the money back and he gives the car back to me”. Um. What?! No.
There’s nothing wrong with the car and it’s actually in great condition, but he just said he realized that he’s only in America for one more year and doesn’t need the car. And he said there’s “something wrong with my title” because he wasn’t able to get his plates right away…because I still had a loan out on it.
Anyway, I explained the process (I think we’re up to at least 5 either phone calls or emails since the 8th) where I kept telling him to be patient and that if he has any questions to please call the DMV. (I explained what the DMV was and what they do…even though he’s tried to get plates and has a permit already).
So, this has basically been a giant pain in the butt ever since I sold the car to him. I honestly don’t have time for this either…I’m moving in under a week and I just have a lot on my plate. I know I’m doing everything right, and I seriously feel like I’m being harassed.
I ignored the last email he sent (I think two days ago) and he had his friend call me today from a different number and basically interrogated me for 20 minutes. And I really don’t think he was actually listening to what I was saying.
Anyway, I’ve just decided to not respond anymore and if someone needs to contact me (even rental companies etc, which I’ve been in contact with) then they can leave a message. My phone is being disconnected on my last day in the US anyway.
So, after that phone call earlier today, the guy that bought my car sent me an email that says:
“I know now that u used my money to pay your loan. I really feel angry about this condition. This is not normal at all. I am not sure whether this is a legal deal. But it has wasted my time and energy. You need give a reasonable explanation about your behaviour. And you also need compensate my loss during the process. “
I really don’t know what else to do besides ignore it. Some of my friends are telling me to tell him that I’m done corresponding with him and that if he or his friends contacts me again that I’ll inform the authorities.
I dunno..I feel like that’s taking it kinda far, but I also am getting kinda worked up over this. Anytime my phone lets me know that I have a new email, I’m like “Oh gosh..it’s probably him.”
I don’t need this extra stress.
Anyway, on an unrelated note…my grandma put together a video montage from my going-away party and had some family members say some stuff. Super sweet 😀
I also spent today painting her upstairs…and um..it’s a lot more space than I remember..lol. And lots of narrow little corners..
Finishing that paint job up tomorrow and hopefully grabbing lunch with a friend (if the weather cooperates) and then headed to my storage unit to check out the space and sign some papers.
Also needing to pick up some BOXES!

Got 3 more calls from that car guy today and an email…all between 10 and 2pm today.
I’ve been trying to ignore it the past 2 days, and it’s been crazy. I sent one final email today basically telling him that what he’s doing is harassment and that it isn’t legal here in the US and if I get another email or call from him or any of his friends that I’ll contact the police.
What else would I use the loan money for? That is completely normal here in the United States, perhaps it is not in China.
Also, what you are doing to me is called harassment. That is not legal and I will contact the police if necessary.
I have gone above my duties as a seller and do not like how you are treating me.
The loan will clear the bank within 10 days after they receive my payment. You can do what you want with the car after that.
I will contact you when the lien release is available. I do not want to hear any more from you or your friends until that time.
This is seriously getting ridiculous.
Not even 5 minutes later, I got another email from him yelling at me saying:
You let me check the bank and the dmv. I checked it but they all said they can not shoe me the information. And you didn’t reply my email and phone call. You said u will call someone on Monday and reply me. Have u replied me?! I want to ask what u want to do? If you want to make the deal in this way. Ok I would like to find other ways to deal with this situation.
Maybe since he says he’ll have to find other ways to deal with the situation that he’ll stop contacting me. Or maybe he’ll call the police or a lawyer. Wouldn’t that be nice.
Anyway, 6 days til departure day.
