Default eBay'er to BLOCK

I typically only post the folks who will waste your time and just cause issues. Got another one...

insomnia808

Broke a case of '08 Limited about a week back. Post a Colt Brennan patch/Auto/RC for sale, starting at $.99. Bidder wins it around $13. Keep in mind this thing is right out of a pack, about 7 days ago.

First sign of trouble... buyer pays and sends message through ebay demanding to know when card will be shipped and what is the tracking number. I reply with, actually, it will be shipped within 24 hours, as with nearly every auction I run - after payment is processed.
He replies with: what is the tracking?
I reply with: I typically don't track items under about $20, unless the buyer specifies they want tracking and pay for it.

Got no reply to that.... until... YEP!

Buyer: I received the card today and all 4 corners are damaged and there is damage on the front of the card. Can I send it back for full refund, including the $2 return shipping?

Me: Provided address for return and noted that I "accommodate full refunds" as per my longstanding policy of perfect customer service standards.

Buyer: So, what does 'accomodate full refunds' mean? will i get my $2 for shipping too?

I just replied with the explaination that the word "full", used in this instance, would indicate a total refund of all monies paid, including return shipping.

... and just went over to PayPal and sent the refund, including return shipping, to the buyer. Couldn't care less about getting the card back at this point. My time isn't worth what it takes to deal with people like this.

but u gotta care about getting the card back . if u dont .. then that buyer is successful in running this scam ..
he'll do it again .. maybe pricier cards / items i would imagine

u'd want the card back .. if not damaged and did file for a refund - what grounds? report to ebay if not damaged - so at least ebay can track this behavior so the next guy doesnt have to make thread for him

Well you are not the 1st...Ebay Issue....I need help!

Really?....You charge $2.35 to ship but if it's less than $20 you will charge the buyer more? WOW.

Also I would have refunded just the full purchase price. I would tell him to kiss off for the return shiping.

I have a case against me too and the winner is asking for me to pay return shipping over that.
