And thats pretty much how its done everywhere.

FWIW, the ad does say "9CAP" twice, but the pic shows a 9CHP.

IMO, since he's proven himself to be unable to handle a situation civilly, I'd tell him if he wants a refund to file a claim, that way all comms are through the PP system and there'll be no "he said, she said". PP will pull the funds from your account and hold them in escrow until you get the TX back. i'd have a friend present when you open the box and video the whole thing, just to CYA.

His (the buyer) homepage lists his occupation as Law Enforcement - threats should be documented and reported in wiriting to your local agency as well as the agency at his location.

BTW - you are correct that the radio needs to be returned to you in the same condition as it left, before a refund is possible.

Luck with that.

I agree, And excepted responsibilty that unknown to me he did not get what he paid for once he bought it to my attention, However no tx returned the way it was shipped refund will not be given. The nerve of the guy to say he doesn't trust me when I got his money first before tx was shipped . If he decides to return I will open and video it with local authorities since he threaten me.

Obviously your buyer is a little pissed off that the item was not as advertised. This would make him loose confidence or trust. I think you need to not respond to his threat. Just apologize for the mistake and ask him to go through PP as suggested, he will 'have his money' before he ships. EDIT: Buyer posted while I was typing, I see now PP refund is not an option, looks like you both made mistakes... But buyer is communicating and I think you guys can work this out.

The temptation is high to buy and sell stuff here, it's not as easy as it looks.

Your lying about the tx condition, though it's an old radio it was in great condition when shipped. Bottom line is you want refund i'll give it to you, But not until you return tx will you be getting one dime from me.

You need to return it to get a refund and add tracking and insure it also. No one is going to refund without there item back in the same condition it was sent.

Sounds like an honest mistake that the seller has taken responsibility for and has offered a refund *when he gets the transmitter back*. And he wants it shipped with tracking to protect both of you, in case it never shows up.

Bargain hunters CAN BE the MOST CRITICAL buyers.
I can understand that it was an oversight on my part when I bought the tx here on RCG, and didn't pay attention to the type of tx it was. When buyer brought to my attention I have no problem refunding him, However tx must be returned first.

Maybe you can consider reimbursing his shipping, since you're taking responsibility for the mistake?

Since he gifted the payment he has no other option now. You guys both made mistakes .... As a buyer I have asked for better pics to clarify condition. Good condition to the salesman may be fair condition to the buyer, the glass half full syndrome applies, anyway the buyer should ship and the seller should apologize.
