Wonderful.  Can't wait to see how this develops and wondering how this 'buyer' will attempt to keep his reputation intact.

sounds like the guy realized he was about to get busted and he "found" the artwork.

Glad this is ending with the right result!

I'm sure it was under a stack of prints and he didn't realize.

xD

 

That is what I was thinking.  Damage control/spin zone:  He opened the package and at that exact moment he saw a print of the art. He mistakenly thought that is what the seller had sent him and filed a complaint. It wasn't until today that he realized the real painting had slipped out of the package and under a stack of newspaper clippings about who really shot JFK.

Soooooooooooo does he want to buy it now? (shrug)

Lol nope.  And I’ll try to find a way to explain that logic in the update.

Let's hope it's the original and not another print.  It will be interesting to hear what PayPal's official excuse .... um err um response is if the original is returned.

Let's not all jump for joy just yet, he hasn't received a darn thing.  That being said, I do hope that you get your art back in the same shape as was shipped out and that this scam artist gets him comeuppance.

I remember opening a large cardboard sandwich to find a print of the original art I had purchased. Immediate confusion and then mixed bad feelings swarmed my mind. And then I started inspecting the sandwich some more (3 or 4 layers of cardboard) and found the original art in another slab. Immediately felt guilty with all my negative thoughts.

Completely agree. Let OP get the art back -confirmed in hand- before the next round of commentary. At least that's what I'm doing. Once the art is secure, then... :devil:

I know I usually just rip open packages worth thousands in a frenzy. Cardboard, bits of art, masonite everywhere. So it makes sense that it likely fell behind the radiator for a few weeks.

Anyone want to bet he already sold it to someone else, and had to get it back from that other buyer first?
