oh i see.

1) try to communicate clearly to him/discuss with him, that you will only return the shoes if he refunds you ALL of your cost as this is not your fault as it was significantly not as described.

2) if he still is a jerk about it, i would honestly just keep the dam shoes.

If not, I agree have one more attempt at it. But with respect to your first e-mail, I don't believe you were direct/clear enough. Did you clarify with him whether you got the return address right? What if the address was off by a digit. Are you sure someone refused delivery? Why don't you ask him if there is another address to send the shoes to and if he wants them, you'll send at his expense.

In my email I included the address I sent the shoes to (I xxx it out when I posted it here). I also confirmed his address by email before sending and this was the same address as the return address on the box he sent me.

I tend to agree with you I don't want to be a jerk here. These aren't my shoes and I want to try to find a reasonable way to get them back to him, but I am not paying to return the shoes to him a second time. Judging by the emails he sent me, I doubt he will wire the money to pay for shipping the shoes back to him.

If another email will clear your conscience, go for it. If he's still a jerk about it, then forget about it and recoup your shipping costs on B&S. I certainly wouldn't re-pay to ship the shoes back.

How about I send this email:

I am disappointed this is not resolved yet. I have no interest in keeping these shoes and I would like to return them to you. But as I am sure you can I understand I do not wish to pay (for a second time) the return shipping costs out of my own pocket. If you are willing to pay for the cost of shipping, including insurance and delivery confirmation I will ship these shoes to your PayPal address.
If I do not hear back from you in 7 days I will assume you are not interested in the offer.

^ Go for it. Just be prepared to get a nasty response (in which case it will make your decision quite easy). And be sure to save all the emails in case he decides down the line to pick a fight about the PayPal refund. Some (many?) people on eBay are just plain crazy.

As far as I'm concerned, after returning them once on your own dime, you've done more than you're ethically obligated to already. Especially considering the nasty response you received.

It's good that you want to do the right thing but no reasonable person would fault you for dropping the issue as is.

The guy is a jerk - but i will give him a pass for that. What if the package got delivered to the wrong house for what ever reason. Then he thinks I trying to rip him off. He was a jerk when I tried to resolve it, but what the hell I decided to him a second chance. As of yet no response to my email.

If you want to, I'd send him an e-mail letting him know that you will return the shoes if you first receive the $18 you have already paid plus advance shipping costs to re-send the shoes. If he is not interested, I'd put them in B&S, recoup the out of pocket expenses as well as a little bit for your time and trouble.

I would call Paypal (they do have a customer service number if you look around the site). Explain to them that he shipped the wrong shoes, issued a prompt refund, you shipped the shoes back and they were refused, and the seller sent an email saying he doesn't want to be contacted again regarding this. They can put a note in your account with the info so if he ever does try something he won't get his money back.

Thanks, good advice. I did send an email to the seller, but no response yet>

Sell them on EBAY but this time with an accurate picture of the actual item.

Well I gave it a few weeks and no response from the seller. So I am unloading these for $35 shipped to recoup my costs.

I dont think there is any way for paypal to reverse the refund. In any event, the seller should have opened an ebay dispute if there was a problem. I issue the refund once I get the returned item so there is no issue. It seems to me the seller pretty clearly told you to take a hike and forget about the shoes. I'd forget about it.
