I had a textbook listed on eBay. The item was a university specific edition of the book, which I noted in my auction. The individual bid on and won the book, and then proceeded to send a detailed list of how he wanted the book shipped, which I would have agreed to do if he had asked before bidding no problem, as I could have factored the extra cost into an invoice. As it was, I was already peeved.
He also included in the message, "If this is an international, teacher's manual, or other nonstandard edition, please refund my money and do not send the book. It will only cause trouble for both of us." Seeing this, I messaged him back, saying "I mentioned in the auction that this was a Drexel University edition of the book. I saw that you do not not want any nonstandard editions. Let me know if you did not intend to buy this edition, and I will refund your money." He never responded to this message, so after 5 days with no response, I shipped the book.
When he received the book, he opened an "item significantly not as described" case against me because the book was a nonstandard edition. I escalated the case to a claim, however when neither the buyer or PayPal responded quickly did not want to wait weeks for PayPal to release the hold on my money so I refunded him the amount minus my initial extra shipping costs, and closed the case. I never received the book back.
He sells books, and probably made money reselling this one he essentially got for free. He has all positive feedback, but his feedback details are private, and since you cannot give negative feedback to a buyer I feel as though he is hiding something by making his feedback comments private, so I wouldn't doubt that others have had similar issues with their transactions with him.
