There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
How did you pay for the goods, was it by Paypal please?
Yes, by payPal
Did you dispute it for Paypal?
Where are we now? What do you want to achieve?
PayPal decided the case in my favour & instantly refunded me my money, the seller only contacted me once she realised that PayPal had refunded me the money and had taken it out of her account.
Ok - and where are things now? You just want to return the bag?
As stated, I just want this to be officially logged with someone just in case I hear from this person again.
I thought that reporting it to Thames Valley Police as e-bay suggested, would do this, but the police suggested CAB.
No, I will not return the bag unless this person refunds my money, e-bay also advised this.
But I thought you were repaid by Paypal?
I was refunded the price I paid, but I still had to pay the Post Office to received this parcel which was delivered under-paid to me. The seller also demanded that I return it to her at my own expense.
How much are you out of pocket now and would you be by returning it please?
£4.00 as stated, The money is really very immaterial --- it is the threatening messaged that concerned me.
Yes, have you reported that to the Police?
Yes, I sent them an Incident Reporting on-line crime form & their reply was instant:
Nothing to do with the police, contact CAB
Ok - I would go and see your local Police force
This is because it could be an offence:
Any person who sends to another person—
a [F1letter, electronic communication or article of any description] which conveys—
(i)a message which is indecent or grossly offensive;
(ii)a threat; or
(iii)information which is false and known or believed to be false by the sender; or
(b)any [F2article or electronic communication] which is, in whole or part, of an indecent or grossly offensive nature,
Therefore if it is offensive then it is an offence and they can take action
Am I just being foolish in reporting this when it was what e-bay advised me to do ?
No I would do this
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes, please can you confirm that I have paid just for this present consultation & that I have not signed up to monthly payments, which I do not want ?
Yes it is a one off fee
Thank you very much.
