I just read the PMs that BH posted. From it I gathered a few things. This is assuming no PMs were deleted.

I gathered that both parties ought to read their PMs a little closer. BH did give his address. Ben shortly afterwards asked for the address. Ben should have gotten it from the PM, Harv should have realized ben missed it the first time.

Ben then tried to make it right by offering to eat the second shipping charge. This speaks to his being a more than fair seller as has been attested to by others here.

Harv implied that he was OK with that in asking why ben hadn't already reshipped it, but, he never actually did say he wanted it reshipped.

Seems to me like there are some missing communications here.

The bottom line is that harv really should have updated his paypal acct addy as it is reasonable to expect someone to use this info in shipping something paid through paypal. He also should have been more than happy to accept it when ben offered to reship for free. 14 bucks is better than half of what ben was getting for the damn thing.

In the end ben is out 14 bucks. i'd call that a cheap lesson in how not to be an interweb pimp. A good practice to follow from here out would be for the seller to ask the buyer if his PAYPAL ADDRESS is correct and not ship anything prior to affirming it.

As for all the interweb tough guy free asswhupping offers..... I'll always get a chuckle out of them.

^^ as far as me asking for his address, i asked for it, then saw that paypal showed his address, so i shipped it to that address, by the time i had received his pm it was already gone, and i glanced at his pm seeing as it had his address, didnt even think to check it with his paypal address.

If the timeline on his PMs are correct, he did list the address early, before you asked for it, but, he made no mention that it was different from the PP address.

There was a little lack of communication on both sides, IMO, but, your sending it to a listed address is completely understandable.
