Camera Equipment Scams On Ebay By Buyers

Sold a Hoya variable neutral density filter about a week ago. The filter was brand new, in the original hard case and I wrapped it in bubble wrap inside a priority mail box.

Today I get an email from the buyer that that the glass is scratched and broken. Sends me a picture of a broken filter. There is NO WAY it arrived like that inside of the box.

Basically I got scammed. If I dont take it back Ebay will just give him the money. So I followed the Ebay policy, told him to send it back and when it arrives I will refund his money.

I have read about people doing this - they have a broken ABC, buy a good one off of Ebay and than turn around and complain the one that you sent is broken so they get their money back.

I should have known as the guy was haggling over $5.
