I posted awhile back about a M.I.A person who had bought an adopt from me years ago. Previous post can be found here: http://artists-beware.livejournal.com/661924.html
I've tried making contact with him several times expressing my interest in buying back the adopt. I've left shouts ect and still nothing.
I've been told by a few friends some advice and was wanting to know what everyone on Ab thought of this. I'm iffy on it my self and wanted to run it by. They are suggesting I "take back" the adopt in question for use for my self, an OC again of mine, and then when Blackfox777999 comes back with a proper way to pay him for it, pay him then.
I of course am straddling this one. While I am a person who prefers to always pay up front for things, items, ect. I honestly don't know what would be appropriate in this situation. I don't know If he'll ever come back in contact with me or come back on FA, but in the same sense, I feel he is justified the money and I am willing to pay for it back at any time, since he offered it back to me in January.
What do you think the best course of action on this would be? Leave the matter be and wait for his return? Or take the adoptable back into my possession and pay him when he returns?
Thank you for the advice!
EDIT: Thanks to everyone who commented! I will definitely be waiting for him to respond back to me on the matter!
