Subject:And still the eBay idiots come
Time:12:39 am
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...

Well I don't believe in 10 years of buying things off Ebay in Greece he's never had a malfunction with a delivery before.

Me neither.

He's saying now that the postcode on the label was wrong and that it was returned to me for that reason, which appears to be true - but Paypal generated that label, not me, so he should talk them - I'm guessing that the screen went missing at some point during the returns process, but I really can't be arsed to make a stink about it, it cost a couple of quid plus letter postage.

Yeah, it's just not worth the hassle of engaging with some of these idiots on Ebay sometimes. You'll get your money back from the PO, he's already got his money back. End of.
