    possible ebay scammer. need help

    I sold a JL 500/1 amp on ebay with a buy it now at $220. The buyer who has a 10 rating did a buy it now, and instant paypal payment. I stated that the amp is 100% working since i did test it right before listing it for sound and power, but stated sold as is. On the bottom someone asked me a question about a return policy (which wasn't the current winner). I stated i will guarentee a refund within 5 days if installed by an mecp certified proffessional.
    here's the ebay auction http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MESO:IT&ih=015
    Okay the turn of events:
    -Fri 5/16/08 11:50 PM-the buy it now happened
    -Fri 5/16/08 11:52 PM-instant payment from the buyer
    -Fri 5/16/08 11:54 PM-i get this question from the buyer
    "Could you send the Item As Soon As Possible? I payed through paypal and the payment is confirmed. I ask could you please provide the tracking number with the carrier that you use? Please email any information to my email [email protected]"
    -I responded back that i couldn't ship off until monday since it's the weekends
    -Mon 5/19/08 2:40 PM I get this email from the buyer asking again "Could I please get information and status of when my item is shipped along with a tracking number? Send it to my paypal email [email protected]"
    -Mon 5/19/08 3:07 PM my response "usps 9101 1288 8230 0289 1604 70. it' going out today. you can also check your paypal. it would have tracking there too."
    -Wed 5/21/08 6:10 PM I recieve an email "
    Okay well Im sending back the amp because I got it tested at an Authorized JL dealership and they confirmed that the RCA jacks were blown out on the amp. Im not upset with your business but the product. I would like a full refund since I met all requirements to your refund policy. Please Email back with any questions or concerns"

    okay this is where i stand. Somehow i had a bad feeling but i still shipped off the amp Monday. Then I get the email from him on wednesday. The email from him seem fishy...worded "confirmed" blown rca jacks....i just emailed him the amp was sold as is, and why would he need to confirm anything. I didnt hear anything back from him. And on saturday (just got home today-sunday) i get the amp back from him thru the same usps box. The amp screws looks like it's been tampered with, and the amp doesn't look like the same one i sent him. One of the heatsink fins is broken at the end. I think he just switched the back plate, and returned me a broken amp. He also sent a letter telling me to email him a refund and reciept from some car audio place stating defective and a $35 fee. what am i suppose to do? i'm afraid he might do a paypal chargeback or something thru ebay. i'm not sure what actions to take.
    this is the letter i got from him "The rca jacks on this amp are blown. I got it tested at an authorized JL dealership by a technician. I would like a refund accredited to my account. If any questions contact my email [email protected] Please reply promptly."

    take the money out of the account asap.
    or send it to someone you know will send it back to you after everything gets sorted out. that is what i do.

    as soon as i receive a payment i transfer it to my moms account so they cant do a charge back right away.

    he seem in a rush to get the amp in the first place, and was in a rush to send it back. right now the amp is in possession and he's waiting for a response. the original amp that's the only picture i have in the auction. i'll try to get picture of the amp now.

    First choice, if he didn't buy insurance, say it might be broken during shipping and ask him why don't contact you before.
    Second choice, just says that a return amp is not at the same condition when it ship out. Take a picture and keep it to compare with first picture you have. Also, as other say, transfer money out from your PayPal account.
    Third choice, ask someone you know or on this board that has JL 500/1 for serial number and tell buyer that return amp is different serial number and give him the serial number you just get.

    Sounds very sketchy, when he said "confirmed" blown rca's he obviously tried to install it himself and ****ed it up or he already had a broken one. Did he ever show you the receipt for the shop he took it to? You sold it as is simple as that, this guys trying to **** with you it seems like. He ships it back to you without any sort of agreement and demands ****. I'll bet if you shipped it back to him and he didn't get a refund you would see that he bought another amp just like that within the next few weeks.

    I usually get pics of all that stuff before selling anything.

    So you shipped it on monday afternoon, and by wednesday evening he already received the amp and got it tested?

    Seems like an extremely short turnaround. Sounds to me like he got the amp on wednesday and tossed another amp in the box along with some fake documents and sent you an email.

    I'd be extremely suspicious, especially if the amps don't look the same.
