Am I just paranoid??? really worried with all the stories

Jun 26, 2006
Hi there

I hope I am being paranoid but just wanted to run something past all you experts. I sold 3 bags to a woman in the US (sending from the UK) even though I said in my listings it was UK only she bid on all three last minute. She has only feedback of 9 and I tend to think that I should give the benefit of the doubt so I said I would send them but it would cost around 70 pounds GBP as I wanted to courier them and not just send them International Delivery. It took her a number of days to come back to me after mails to her and she agreed (she did have a bit of attitude in the mails). I sent them to her and had confirmation 3 days ago that they arrived. I have emailed her to get her to confirm she received them and that we should exchange feedback, nothing, I have chased everday since then, nothing. I guess I may be worrying needlessly but with all these Paypal stories of them taking money back out your account plus the fact her low feedback and no response to email I am getting a wee tad scared. Can anyone ease my worry? What could I do next to protect myself? The value of the sale is 1,500 dollars.


Its still me...

I understand why you are worrying but I always work on the basis that no new is good news! I mean if she was desperate to get the bags then I am sure you would have heard if they had not arrived. Buyers like that really frustrate me. You go out of your way to post things are per their demands and then you expect them to let you know they have arrived and nothing!! At least you have tracking so you can cover yourself. I wouldn't worry at this stage and it is true that alot of people are away and mega busy at this time of the year! :yes:

I would not bother her or email her again regarding feedback, you will just get her annoyed. Just let it be and remove the funds out of your Paypal account just in case.
I find it quite rude when people overseas bid on a item when you say UK only and do not email to ask you first, but I would just let it go, you have confirmation that she received them so leave it at that.
