A Regretsy.com reader named Erica related yesterday how she sold an old French violin “that made it through WWII” to a buyer in Canada for $2,500. However, the buyer disputed the authenticity of the label and demanded his money back. When the buyer contacted PayPal with his concerns, the payment processor instructed him to destroy it and refunded the purchase price.
So the seller of the violin is out $2500 and a violin. Makes you think twice about selling accepting Paypal, especially for an item like this.
