ASk Misc - A Dilemma.. what do you think?
Ok I have a dilemma misc and i would like you to help me out:
On another site i have taken part in what is called a "maths trade" where you submit a list of things to trade and you match up what you would trade of yours from the list of everyone's items. an algorithm then sets up a trade chain
so for example:
A wants Item C but C wants an Item from B.. Be wants something from A so they trade in a chain and everyone gets what they want:
A sends to B, B sends to C, C sends to A
Any way. Basically I traded a large collection of cards from a trading card game to someone and in turn they traded something to someone else, I had listed the rare and valuable cards and said generally the condition of the cards was good. (which it was).
Now here is the problem: the guy i traded to has come back to me saying the most valuable card in the collection is damaged (and to be clear i've got no reason not to believe him.. i didn't fully check over every card and neither was i asked to)
He is asking for £10 or so to compensate him for the reduction in value of the card as he had traded away something that he thought was equally as valuable as the collection of cards (tbh i had no idea how much they were worth)
from what he said when he asked the questions about the cards included he implied he was a player rather than a trader or collector, otherwise i would have more thoroughly checked the more valuable cards.
Half of me is saying yes i should, half of me is saying no i shouldn't.
Should i send him the compensation?
