Hi, I bought a second hand car almost two months ago, i did pay for the car cash from the guy i bought it from, I deposited an x amount also in cash in the original owners bank account that was outstanding on the agreement between him and the guy i bought it from in order to get the vehicles logbook. Unfortunately I haven't received the logbook upto date and now the real owner surfaced, the guy i bought it from never paid for it and the guy I deposited the money for who claims he is in possession of the logbook also owes the real original owner R7000 before I can get the logbook.
