    On 26 May, I paid in full for a tractor that was on Gumtree and arranged with the seller that I would be in touch regarding the pick up. Last night, I received a text that said that the sellers have decided they have changed their minds, and want to keep the tractor and will refund my money. I have paid in full and I want to keep the tractor. Am I legally in the the right under Australian Consumer Law, or are they able to get away with this?

    Hi Dutchy,
    1. How did you agree to purchase the tractor via Gumtree? I assume via phone calls and/or email? This information is important to better understand whether a contract existed between you and the seller (and if it did, the terms of any contract).
    2. Was the tractor for domestic/household or commercial use?
    3. What was the agreed price of the tractor?
