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:
