And still the eBay idiots come

I sent a small packet to Greece several weeks ago. It came back today, torn open in transit and the actual item (a focusing screen) missing, with a rubber stamp from the Greek post office which they conveniently didn't tick to show why it was returned etc.

So I contacted the buyer and told him so that he could make an item not received claim and I could give him a refund and claim it from the post office.

So he made the claim, I gave him a refund. He then sent me this email:

I am ebayer over ten year, this happened to me for the first time. I don't believe that the screen was stoled or broken in shipping. You never send it.

Ignoring the fact that if I was trying to scam him in some way I would have never contacted him in the first place.

So I sent him a scan of the padded envelope and suggested he complain to eBay if he thought he had a case. Somehow I doubt he will...
