Wow, that's awful Steve. Don't think I ever knew that.
Have you posted this to the CGC boards (I take it the answer is "yes", but...) ?
Was there confirmation/etc on the package? How did the chargeback work if you shipped to the verified address?
Is the ebay account still active?
I had delivery confirmation on the package, but not signature confirmation, so that voided seller protection.
I was going to send FedEx with signature, but the buyer gave me a song and dance about how FedEx was a hassle, he was never home to sign during day, etc. etc. and he requested USPS with delivery confirmation. We exchanged a number of emails and he seemed legit with good feedback, so I trusted him and got suckered.
He also sent me a $50 down payment and then paid the balance within a week. Later, I learned that "multiple payments" also voids seller protection.
The guy knew the rules and how to game them.
I'm not sure if the ebay account is still active, but he is a boardie on the CGC boards. Nick (Flaming Telepath) also fell victim to this guy.
