Ah, the possible victim (laying on the street with a bullet hole in the
head) may have been the possible victim of a possible crime perpetrated by a
possible criminal. Does anyone see how just hanging them as in the olden
days might prevent possible future possible crimes.
Just shoot 'em in the butt. Then the possibilities are endless. :-)
I've had stuff come damaged in the mails (and UPS, and Fedex). I've
had a check from a customer get mangled in the post office and
delivered two months late with the little "oopsie!" post office
message rubber-stamped on it, and enclosed in a baggie. Shit happens.
What we ASSUME after hearing only one side of a story can be different
than what actually happened. Rush to judgement in life threatening
situations, otherwise wait a bit. Time wounds all heels.
Yeah, all the eeevils in the world are because of them high-price
lawyers, talking all that fancy lawyer-talk and making all them goldurn
laws. Whyn't we just go and take 'em out?
You really do sound like a redneck, you know. How many trucks up on
blocks in your 1/4 acre?

I think at least some lessons for sellers is to not ship prior to payment
confirmation; insure your parcels; use USPS with tracking to allow for a
mail fraud investigation; understand your credit card merchant account
chargeback policies; understand that "shrinkage" is a cost of doing business
and that sometimes you will be ripped off.
For buyers: pay with PayPal or credit card so you have at least some
recourse for non-delivery or misrepresentation; understand your cc issuers
charge contest procedures; if you have questions about the merchanise
specification, contact the seller before bidding or buying.
And for both: realize that the auction site basically won't help you and has
no legal liability.
