I bought a MJ Stella from eBay for $215 with shipping about a month ago. The bag was listed as New without tags (which to me means that is hasn't been used EVER) I got the bag, and for the most part the condition is ok but there seems to be quite a bit of wear on the handles and what resembles a pen mark on the inside of one of the pockets (small, but i still know it's there). Also, the bottom part of the handles below the buckle are starting to curl up and there is a bit of wear on the corners. All of these details are making me think that the bag was in fact used, maybe lightly, but none the less the seller misrepresented the item. I e-mailed him and told him my concerns, he kind of ignored my questions & concerns about the condition and kept assuring me that the bag hasn't been used and is authentic (i'm not questioning the authenticity, just the usage part) So after this went on for a week I filed a dispute with PayPal...he kept saying that he'll either refund me $20 for the discrepancy in condition or I can send the bag back to him and he'd refund me 200, (that's the price minus the shipping) and I'd also have to cover his relisting fees as well as the cost to ship it back to him (basically I'd end up in the hole about $40 and no bag). My thought was that this was not enough and I asked for $50 back to make up for the condition So he escalated the calim to a disupte that same week and after ALL this and waiting for PayPal to respond to this case, I got an e-mail from the seller today stating that if i dont return the bag by THIS FRIDAY he will sue me for: "$1875.00 for loss of revenue, time, effort, money out of pocket, and legal fees. The fees have been calculated by my attorney up to the first hearing. If she disputes this and makes a motion to obtain legal counsel, the initial filed claim amount will adjust according for more legal work @ $175.00/hr. " CAN HE EVEN DO THIS???? Isn't paypal supposed to protect against this type of thing?! He's saying I'm the one abusing the PayPal system and that he sold me the bag as new!!! I'm afraid that if I return it to him now he'll say that this isn't the condition he sent it in!!! This is just absolutely absurd. I don't need to be dragged through small claims courts because this person's stupidity!! So what do I do???
