    Really fkd off but at least nothing has changed hands and there's not a lot of money involved.

    Posted an unused, name brand accessory earlier this morning and just as I was about to set off for work I heard the ebay app on my moby make that 'Kerching' sound which notifies one of a sale. checked the moby and, right enough, kit sold! Great, I thought, and off I went.

    Seven hours later I get a message from the buyer: 'Hi! Hope you're well. Can I cancel my order? I was gonna put it in my bass but have changed my mind.'

    I've not had a flake like this on ebay for over ten years. Now, I know much has changed on ebay since then and from what I gather I have no recourse but to refund the fkr, despite me having a 'no returns' policy. Then again, I haven't posted the item. I just can't believe his casual, confident air, as if he's walked into Woolworths, bought something then brought it back hours later for a refund!

    All I can say is: tf it wasn't something of value that I'd quickly gone and spent his money on!

    Why didn't it go like this?:

    "Can I cancel my order?"

    "No. You may not"
