My reaction to an email I just received:
You see, I sold one of my accounting text books a few weeks ago for $50 using Amazon. I had my money within a few days of shipping and honestly, I’d practically forgotten about the whole sale. Today I get this in an email:
Well that sucks for you, doesn’t it? You don’t buy a book that you weren’t sure you needed and then ask me for a refund 2 weeks after delivery! I’m not Wal-Mart or your university bookstore. My return policy is called I don’t have a return policy.
I sold her the book she wanted in perfect condition (which she even mentions). It’s not cool to change your mind in this situation. For all I know she failed her first test and dropped the class. That’s not my problem AND I’d have a hard time getting the same price since the quarter is almost over.
I try to be open and honest in any type of business/transaction deal; but this is just taking advantage. Have you ever sold anything only to have the buyer come up with crazy requests?
