I truly, truly hope this person is a member. Especially if he forgets there is copious message / photo / video evidence of below
This gentleman purchased a FVF Iron Man #1 from us. After buying, he sent a total of 7 messages, asking questions that most people
would ask prior to purchase. But, people are weird sometimes. Those being answered, we ship it to him.
Two hours after receiving said item, he opens a return for an item not as described. The points on which he is claiming discrepancy, are,
line for line, the actual flaws on this book listed in the listing itself. But again, no huge deal. eBay allows regret returns, as long as you call them
not as described. It is , sadly, what it is.
When we receive the item, in the same top loader in which we sent it, it now has a smallish, but very noticeable, chunk missing from the right
edge of the front cover, in what looks like a tape snag. When reviewing the photos he sent to justify his return, they are all cropped immediately
below this area.
When confronted, he immediately begins the histrionics, protesting with MANY CAPITAL LETTERS that he is a professional, that this is impossible,
that the photo I sent him of the damage is CLEARLY another book, that now he can see that the damage is CLEARLY on the same book, that it somehow
happened during transit, inside a top loader, that he had NO IDEA what I meant about the cropping, that he sells items worth 10 times this amount so
that is proof of something or other.
At which point I mentioned to him that there was video from our helpful mailperson, of the box being opened, with the damage inside the top loader.
Literally, 2 minutes later, he escalates his return to a claim, a full 45 minutes after the item was delivered, and has now kept quiet to this point.
While this is not nearly as egregious as him stealing the book and sending me a photo copied Archie book, it is plainly childish behavior, and an example
of someone being unable to take responsibility for what was, more than likely, an unfortunate accident.
And yes, we have confirmed the refund, and will be eating the loss on resale. As much as he liked to defend this action by proclaiming himself a
PROFESSIONAL, we actually are.
