stupid paypal !!!
long story short, i sold one of my lenses online, which was mint. i rarely used it, have the original box and packing etc. the jerk who bought it says it wasn't mint and was broken upon receiving it. he also said there were a couple scratches on it. this is insane. that lens never left my house and was a dup of one i used as a main shooter, which was also mint. it was my canon 17-55 mint lens some of you may know i just sold. it was in the molded styrofoam block in the box from canon, and that box was inside a heavily-padded box with peanuts, etc. he has been threatening and i have been in constant contact with him. i think he just doesn't want the lens. now he wants a full refund, which i can't and won't do, and has reported me to paypal. those idiots froze my assets / account tied to it / until this is resolved. so, should i buy a guitar and then claim the neck was broken in transit? just to get stuff for free? this is crazy! he has not furnished any photos of anything either. he claims he went to 2 camera shops to verify it was broken. first off, what camera shop.....they usually don't know anything. 2nd, if you have to go to a camera shop to see if something is wrong, then there probably isn't. i think this jerk dropped it. sorry for my rant. i'm done with paypal and scammers. any of you ever been in this boat?
