|Song Celadon, 12-13th C.|
We've been doing business in China for over 30 years, we have great friends there and enjoy a wonderful relationship with our regular customers.
"Its a Different Color, Can I get a Partial refund or I will return it."
|17th-18th C. Chinese jade|
The latest angle is sending the piece along after getting paid and the buyer emailing the seller a day later saying:
- "I got the (vase, bowl, charger, jade, Silk robe etc) it is a different color than how it looked on my screen",
- "can you refund me $200 or I will return it"..or some other portion of the total selling price.
Whats my advice on all of this latest Ebay Buyer Scam?
- First and foremost: The Immediately block them from ever bidding again.
- Tell the buyer to send it back and let them know you will refund ONLY the selling price not including the Shipping charges for the return or what they paid for Shipping initially.
