Wow...this sucks. Back in May 2005 I got a $2700 down payment for a $5400 dollar job through a local school. Well They had decided to put it off...and then off again. I hadn't heard from them all of this year, then all of a sudden they called me today on my home phone. Well, I had basically thought that they had forgotten about me. Anyway, I had quit the business back in Auguest. The $2700 basically got absorbed, it was never put to the side and I don't have an extra $2700 sitting around. My questions is am I financially obligated to return the money? As it was a year and a half ago. By the way my business was a sole-proprietorship. If I do this job, should they be entitled to the price I orginally quoted them, as they paid a deposit? I would not even look at this job for the price I quoted them now. It was one of the first jobs I had quoted. What a nasty situation I have gotten myself into. Any help would be appreciated. I would pay them back in a heart beat if I could. Unfortunately my financial situation is not the best right now.
