Quoting reasmom:" Maybe u could offer to help them with the electric bill as a deposit for the car but don't give them the full amount for the car until u get title."
But it's not our money. We're in no place financially to help him with his bills. My parents are the money fronting the money for the car, so essentially I would be asking my parents to pay my DH's cousin's electric bill, and that's not right. I'm not doing that.
ETA: And not to mention EVERY SINGLE MEMBER of DH's family struggles for money. Not 30 minutes ago DH's mom called and asked if we could lend her money for groceries... If we help out one person, people will be coming to us every month asking for money. I'm not doing that.
