    I need your help people, this exactly isn't a credit topic, but I have nowhere to turn without wasting money on a lawyer.. Here is the situation!

    I sold a laptop computer on eBAY about 2 weeks ago, I accidently told the buyer that if the auction sold for $1049 or higher, I would include a DVD player, well the auction sold for $930.00, the seller sent me $1000.00 and I cashed the money order, and shipped. I did not give DVD player as item was not over $1049.00.

    Buyer is pissed and wanted refund, I gladly accepted, buyer said he would repack the computer and ship back to me. When I received his package, it was not a computer in it, the box was there with the software and supplies,but the actual computer was not packaged in the box! Yes I know you all are laughing)

    He now demands his money back, but I never got the computer back, I sure as hell am not going to give his money back, since I didnt get the computer back, but now I told him this, and he is going to file a fraud report against me.

    Should I call the police here and let them know what is happening? Should I contact the post office, help!!! I don't want to refund his money, as he is trying to SCAM ME!!!

    Can he file suit in court to destroy my credit? Would a judge believe me? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Without any proof, it will come down to your word against his. It sounds like maybe this is what this person had planned all along. Then again if this is a thief your dealing with, then maybe he also has a police record.

    Do you have documentation of the weight of the package you sent him? On the outside of the package he returned to you, it should be marked for postage by the post office or FedEx or whatever. Anyway, you should be able to see what the cost was to send it back to you, and from that determine the weight of the box. If it weighed less when he sent it back than it did when you shipped it out, then I guess he has a problem. Just a thought.
