    Probably because he was told he could keep the whole outfit, minus the jacket.

    I had a bad feeling about this guy and blocked him, but then unblocked him to send him an offer. Should've stuck with my gut feeling lol

    Last message sent Feb 1. At this point I obviously reblocked and ignored him. Assclown sends me this tonight. I replied instantly, which probably made him extra peeved LOL

    @SpooPoker Do you still need those link, or did the Auction/BIN explain the two different lists?

    What an asshole. Offering $X via PM, having the seller accept your offer, then offering .75X saying "I'll pay immediately" is the biggest scumbag buyer move. I can't believe how often it happens.

    Is he an SF troll? He sent me low ball offers for an item. When I countered, he low balled again. I'm going to block him.

    So I made a big dumb mistake. Not sure how it happened given I always triple check shipping labels. But I mixed up 2 labels and the wrong items went to each person. The buyers still want the items they ordered but now its all very complicated.
    Does anyone have any tips on how to proceed, other than accepting 2 returns.

    I made that mistake once. Just provided shipping labels to each buyer and asked them to send the item to the other person, and gave them a discount for their troubles.

    Awesome, thank you. I was hoping something like that could be done. And am glad to hear someone else has had luck with it.
