Re: Explains a lot.
Hahahahaha! I take it you've never actually dealt with a scamming buyer.
You are either going to have not had the item returned, just a "not as described" claim filed, money refunded. If you persist, you might get something sent to you, which may resemble what you sent, just now smashed up.
Another classic is for the scammer to ensure that the package doesn't get delivered, files a claim for non-delivery (and gets awarded their money back) then collect parcel from depot.
Usually what happens is you end up with no sale, a shipping cost, and no item. If you can pull that off with a retail outlet, I'm very impressed. It's the equivalent of spending up large on stuff on your credit card, then when home with the goods, claiming your card was nicked.
There are a list of countries whom I don't ship to, due to problems with large amounts of scammers, failed deliveries, dodgy customs and other such "double loss". Italy and UK top my list.for Europe, the ability to just flat out win buyer disputes by filing for action fraud and keeping the stuff.
Since the police are useless at any crime involving any level of paperwork (which is why fraud is the thinking criminals method of choice) the only effective way I found of shutting down the scam buyers is to send them low grade speed or coke in the mail. Nice leaky package.
For all the slagging off about bitcoin, if some Russian, Italian or British person wishes to buy something from me, then payment that is quick and non-reversible means I'll actually try to ship them things, rather than just say your country is full of scabs.
