I bought a breeding at a silent auction years ago.....Was not immediately taken with the filly, but she grew on me, and I contacted the person about breeding a different mare, since the original one died. I explained that this was kind of tentative, and not for another 16 months would I even CONSIDER being ready.
Immediately, she sent me a Paypal request for payment, started hounding me with phone calls, and I finally quit answering. Then after a couple of months, I heard her horses had been picked up, and all the desperateness made a little sense.
So, today, I get a "cancellation of PayPal payment request"....from 2009!!!!!
I guess she is back in the horse business.....
