Just over 3 weeks ago I bumped into someone's car on accident. There was no apparent damage to their car, but I insisted we exchange details in case. The person refused and said it was all right.
Much to my dismay, I was called several days later by the police station - damage was discovered. The person and I decided I would pay the repair cost as it is cheaper than insurance excess.
After depositing the money and providing a screenshot, I have heard nothing from the person, despite them saying they would send a receipt once the car is repaired. We have a text message history.
I sent a follow up message 2 weeks after with no reply, and another message close to a month. I rang up yesterday afternoon, and got through - they say they have not been receiving my messages, and would send the receipt once they got home.
No receipt was sent. It's possible they are away for the weekend, so I will wait until after to follow up. What should I do to cover myself and find out my money was spent on what it was meant for? I don't want to harass the person but I'd like evidence of my money being used for what we agreed.
