Default Honesty around the world!

Something amazing happened to me today! But let me start from the beginning. About 3 months ago I sold a Harry Potter Heroes and Villains Auto Redemption of Professor Quirrell to a guy in Taiwan for $80. He paid though Paypal and I shipped it out standard mail. Express mail with tracking wouldv'e been like $15! Anyways, 3 weeks later he writes me saying he has not received the card. I try to explain that it probably takes awhile to ship there, but he wants nothing to do with it and issues a complaint with Paypal. I know I'm screwed because I don't have a tracking number but did have the receipt which shows that it did ship out of the states. So I go ahead and refund his money.

Well, I get home today after doing some shopping and I see I have a paypal deposit of $80. The guy finally received his card and paid me back the money!! I don't know about you, but I was shocked to say the least.

Just feels good to know there are some honest people all around the world. He could've easily of kept the money.

Sorry for the long read, but just wanted to share.

Derrell

Derell,

Thank you for posting this story.

I know it doesn't seem this way, but I believe there are a lot more honest people in the world than dishonest people. If the media would report good deeds as often as bad ones, I think we'd all believe this to be true.

Nice to hear. It is tuff shipping out of the states. Anything of value now ($50 or higher I suppose) I require priority just because it seems I've had too many items not reach people out of the states.

Not just the media. When something isn't right, we are vocal. Not so much when it's fine. The classic example of this is: "oh yah, you like that sucky product? google (product name + problems) and see all the people complaining about it"

Sure enough you will find thousands of link of complaints leading you to believe that product is the worst thing devised by man

I had 2 angel dushku autos, sold one and they filed a complaint saying they "never received" I refunded them the money but first offered them my other one shipped delivery confirmation but they said no they didn't need it anymore.. It was obvious they where ripping me off, now if it's over 50.00 I send certified..

Congrats on finding an honest buyer
