    i'd email them and ask them if they want them returned (and would pay for shipping costs)

    What would you want to happen if you were the seller?

    That's your answer;-)
    Email the seller and get him / her to pay the postage before you send them back. They should be able to do this through paypal.

    keep and sell them on for a profit

    contact seller offer to send them back but you want payment for postage first and you want the payment for specail delivery as you dont want them going missing in the post, they wont want to pay that much to get them back so then they are yours

    Keep them unopened for 30 days if they don't request them they are legaly … Keep them unopened for 30 days if they don't request them they are legaly yours to keep it's their fault for sending too many !!

    Don't turn to the dark side of eBay.

    Contact the seller and wait for their answer.

    Dont complain aha. Hoping that will happen with the converse i have just bought

    hi i sent these out to the wrong person can i have your ebay name and ill send you my addy so you can send them back to me

    it's legally theft if you keep them, (constructive trust imposed upon you return them if you know who the owner is blah blah)

    It's only 30 days when you write to them to collect it. Its 6 months if you don't notify them

    Unsolicited Goods and Services Act 1971 (30)

    Demands and threats regarding payment.

    (1) A person who, not having reasonable cause to believe there is a right to payment, in the course of any trade or business makes a demand for payment, or asserts a present or prospective right to payment, for what he knows are unsolicited goods sent after the commencement of this Act to another person with a view to his acquiring them for the purposes of his trade or business, shall be guilty of an offence and on summary conviction shall be liable to a fine not exceeding level 4 on the standard scale,

    (2) A person who, not having reasonable cause to believe there is a right to payment, in the course of any trade or business and with a view to obtaining any payment for what he knows are unsolicited goods sent as aforesaid:

    (a) threatens to bring any legal proceedings; or

    (b) places or causes to be placed the name of any person on a list of defaulters or debtors or threatens to do so; or

    (c) invokes or causes to be invoked any other collection procedure or threatens to do so, shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 5 on the standard scale.

    Interpretation. 6:

    (1) In this Act, unless the context or subject matter otherwise requires,

    'acquire' includes hire;

    'send' includes deliver, and “sender” shall be construed accordingly;

    [COLOR="Red"] 'unsolicited' means, in relation to goods sent to any person, that they are sent without any prior request made by him or on his behalf. [/COLOR]

    in otherwords its his fault he sent them and under this act they cannot ask for them back by law !!

    (2) For the purpose of this Act any invoice or similar document stating the amount of any payment and not complying with the requirements of regulations under section 3A of this Act applicable thereto shall be regarded as asserting a right to the payment.
