What would you do?

So my first post in about a year is WWYD?

I get this guy who buys an expensive coin on eBay where he could have made an offer but buys it. I would maybe have come off 5% but not more. This buyer has many bad comments made about him. I did get a phone call from a friend who basically warned me to be careful so I waited a few days to ship to be sure the paypal didn't have any issues. Now he wants to get a discount off the sales price to keep it or he says he will return it. I actually don't care if I sell it or not but smell a scam coming from this guy. Any ideas how to be sure I don't get ripped off?

I seldom check PM's but do check emails often [email protected]

  • YOU CAN ONLY SET YOUR RETURN POLICY TO NO RETURNS TO BE 100% SURE. IT IS A HUGE FLAW IN THE E BAY SELLING FORMAT.

  • Ebay return policy is very clear. Either the buyer returns the item in it's received condition, or they don't get a refund. Of course any percentage off to satisfy the buyer is your choice. But be careful and make sure it is done through the ebay process. Have them file a return claim, then you offer a discount. When they accept the discount they have no further recourse on a return as the case is then closed.
    I currently have a buyer threatening me with a note I know is legit (I've been a collector for over 40 yrs.). His claim, after showing it to a collector and a bank teller, is that it's fake. I explained that many bank tellers (or even managers) have never even seen or held some of the old currency that is out there. They look at it and instantly say it's fake because they have never encountered anything like it before.
    Hope you've had good outcome with your situation.
