I think you should include the note like you mentioned and post it. You’ve done the right thing so far and really you need to look after yourself in all this bee. Good luck!

I say leave the note in the package. The other ‘buyer’ might be a fake anyway.  PayPal can’t prevent a fraudulent transaction from taking place unless the person paying has used PayPal. The most you could do is warn the ‘buyer’ by calling them before you ship it and hope that she hasn’t paid already or is able to reverse the payment.

Either way, your obligation, in order to get back your money is to ship the dress to the address PayPal gave

Is anyone else curious how there was so much damage? Did this woman do a trash the dress shoot or store it in a bad area or something? Maybe her new husband got too excited on their wedding night. :shrug:

OP, I’m very glad it worked out for you. I hate scammers. I do wonder though, what if it had been sent to you in great condition, you wore it the next day for your wedding and you damaged it, and then you claimed it wasn’t as described and so on and got your refund from PayPal. Not saying that happened, but I can see a case where you have a buy-side scammer like that and it seems like the seller would get screwed there.

TheGridMonster:  I hear you. But I honestly don’t think that anyone would have the heart,  time or patience to do something like that. Perhaps that is why PayPal asked the OP to get a letter from a bridal salon? PayPal also take into account the credibility of the buyer and seller. I suspect that this isnt the first time that the seller has scammed someone or sent an item which is not as described.

calibride22:  I made clear in my post I wasnt suggesting you did that. Clearly your wedding hasn’t even happened yet. I am genuinely curious about what I posted because I have zero faith in people and could totally see someone pulling that and that’s why I’ve never sold anything online. I’m way too paranoid about getting screwed over. So I do really wonder how a seller in a situation like that could really prove that they shipped the item in a certain condition. Short of providing an unedited video of them displaying the item, packing it up, sealing the box, driving it to the post office, and handing it over to get shipped out, I don’t see what other evidence they would have. That’s why I’m curious. Sorry you’re taking my curiosity as being personally offensive.
