Could do with some advice on this guys:
About a month ago (maybe less) I sold my HTC HD2 mobile phone on ebay. The buyer had good feedback and was in the UK. He made prompted payment but then asked if he could get the phone sooner (I said up to 4 working days on ebay). After several emails I agreed but asked for an additional payment of £5 to cover my time and next day (Saturday) delivery costs. He agreed and once again payment was propped.
However the phone didnt arrive till Monday (Royal mail) so understandably he was disappointed. He then wrote an email asking for the £5 to be returned. I advised him that I was looking into it with the post office to claim my money back. I also explained that some of the cost was for my time (travel), so I offered to pay half the money back now (£2.50) and half when I get my money back for the postage (I wasnt even sure he didnt get it on time). After some emailing back and forth he threatened me with negative feedback, I once again explained to be patient and this was the last I heard from him.
Then a few hours ago I get an email to say this users account has been hacked and to cancel all transactions with him. Obviously this is too late as I have sent the phone (i have proof of postage) to a paypal confirmed address.
So where do I stand, will ebay / paypal come after me for the money even though I have sent the phone? I have cancelled any payments to both with my back.
What should I do as to me it seems strange for someone to hack an account then fight for a refund of £5???
