Oh here we go again. I know we've all heard it all in here, but I just wanted to get some opinions and feedback from you all about my situation. Over a month ago I purchased a Chanel charm belt (click here) when it arrived I opened the box. The belt was not packed very carefully, and even though there was a foam protector in the box and a small amount of tissue, the belt was just kind of thrown in there and left to slide around the box. (This is not the issue, by the way, I just wanted to set up the story with my initial impression, which is that the seller was not very mindful of the item). The belt is new with the tags still attached, but when I inspected it, I noticed the large CC charm had stones missing from it. I contacted the seller IMMEDIATELY to let them know of this and requested a refund upon return. The belt was too expensive to have come in SNAD condition. Well, they got right back to me that evening and said that they would be willing to accept a return. A little while later I received a second email saying that if the stones were not in the box that they would REFUSE a return. Huh? I did, by the way, carefully inspect the box and packaging to make sure the stones weren't there. They were not. So, I did what most people would and that is to call my credit card company. Long story short, my card company sided with me and I won the chargeback. Paypal has now frozen my account though, until I can prove the seller has received the item back. Now, through eBay's dispute system, the seller is accusing me of a.) pulling a scam; b.) removing the stones myself; c.) purchasing the same belt as damaged from elsewhere and trying to return the damaged one to him and is also threatening me by saying that once they receive the item back, if it is missing stones they will call the police. Now, I realize this is a lot of bluff, probably, but I'm very upset. I am a very honest person and would NEVER EVER do the things I am now being accused of. The seller keeps claiming the photos show that the belt is in perfect condition and this is their evidence, but this item was listed many times before I purchased it. Anything could have happened to it between when the pictures were originally taken and when I received it. From the way the seller packaged it, I doubt it was thoroughly inspected before it was sent. I was watching it for quite a while before I took the plunge. At this point, I'm sorry I did. Anyone have any words of wisdom for me? This is making me ill. Thanks for reading everyone!
