Better idea, and I will do this in the future if I have to:
Return a dog turd to the vendor, complete with tracking info. It would be a small box, and then THEY'd be trying to talk to deaf ol Ebay!
Ebay would go on the TRACKING being fulfilled, and give me a refund.

This would HAVE to work!

If "modelstore235" sends me poo, I WILL do the same!!!


I have never had to sign for any helicopters from Hong Kong or China.

I was just looking at "eBay buyer protection" and it sounds like they will refund your money for shipping it back as well as the item plus shipping. I think I might be reading it wrong though. Any thoughts?

I do like the idea of sending poo or something similar.... these sellers deserve that and more!

yes you are reading it wrong

http://pages.ebay.com/coverage/index.html

copied and pasted from the bottom of the page:

Do I need to send the item back to the seller?

If you have opened an item not as described case for a purchase covered by eBay Buyer Protection, then you must send the item back to the seller. You must also provide eBay with the shipping tracking number in order to receive a refund into your PayPal account.

This what makes it so unfair, you are supposed to pay for tracked shipping back to the seller even though they new they were sending you the wrong item. They did not make a mistake with the order, a mistake is when they send the wrong colour etc not a different helicopter.

Ingenious and yes I agree there is nothing morally wrong with this. You are just making things right!

Why bother with Paypal and Ebay horrendous policies? Just pay with your credit card through Paypal and when a problem arises file a complaint with the credit card company directly. You'll get instant credit, the chargeback will go right through Paypal regardless of the Ebay auction terms and if the vendor sent the wrong item tell the CC company you're NOT returning anything unless the seller sends you a shipping label (especially in a case like this where shipping is worth more than the item). Like that you get your money back and get to keep whatever they sent in an attempt to screw you...

That definitely sounds like the best solution so far. Would that work the same for a debit card used on PAYPAL?
