Huh. I'm in the exact same situation with this guy. He's paid $200 and owes $280 more on a gun. I tried to PM him here a week or two ago and was met with the same "inbox full" problem. I sent him a PM on Nation and haven't heard anything.

I was leaning toward refunding him and just listing again, and I'm honestly a bit surprised to see people here of the opinion that his payments are forfeit. For reference I've been hanging on to the gun for like... 5 months now. I had told him there was no rush, and there really wasn't, but I'm growing impatient at this point.

The other problem is I've successfully sold this guy stuff in the past. Weird.

Don't keep the deposit. You have no right to it unless it was negotiated as non-refundable. And not always even then.

Exactly, wherein which case it wouldn't be a deposit, it would be a payment...
All deposits are refundable, if its not, then it is a fee, or a payment.

Maybe return half and keep the other half as an inconvince fee.

If you hold onto the deposit, then the gun is still "oh hold" to him. You can't keep both the gun and the money.

The right thing is to return the money minus any paypal fees you may have incurred.

What do you think a deposit is? A deposit is an initial payment and a promise that, if the item is held, the person who paid the deposit will pay the rest of the asking price. If that person does not pay the rest of the price, the deposit is lost.

You can't give someone an arbitrary amount of money to hold something for you indefinitely and then expect them to give you your money back when you renig.

The OP has held the item for months because he thought it was sold. That's time that the item could have been listed. That's time that potential buyers that could have bought the item spent buying other items that were actually on the market. That's wasted time and, potentially, money that the OP can not get back and it shouldn't be free.

If I put a deposit down on a house, keeping the owners from selling it for X months, and then had the audacity to tell them I changed my mind and I want my deposit back they'd laugh me out of their house and they'd be right to do so.

The OP asked if he should just give the deposit back and relist and I said he should because I assumed the options were to either do that or continue to hold the gun... if keeping the deposit and relisting is an option, then, by all means, do that instead.
