Has anyone ever got a call from a family member of the person you bought a game from wanting it back? How did you handle it? I have mixed emotions. I wanna do whats right but dont wanna sell the game. I bought it from a step daughter, now the son of the previous owner wants it back. I have about 20 hours labor plus travel plus about $50 parts in it. It was in pieces along with 2 and a half other machines. She didnt even realize there were 3 complete games there. She mentioned the Dads other kids didnt wanna mess with the estate, which was a hoarders mess. Now that I have done the work, they want the reward. Im thinking had he contacted me sooner before i put the time and effoet in I would have sold it back but now im not so inclined to as I have learned the stepdaughter had permission from the father who is in (hospice and a Korean War veteran) to sell all the Assets in the house and all the buildings that was being repossessed by the bank and it was quite a mess. The reason I am not going to sell them back is because the sons had not visited their father in over 25 years and she had never even met them but had taken care of the father all these years. What type of sun would let his father's home get repossessed and then show up years later only to try and claim the assets? I plan on doing what the father wanted done with these machines... Restore them, and will do so in his honor.
