And, by the way, this is an example of why we restrict the right to edit.
I knew you had a time parameter, never knew what it was.....
Not sure (time wise). If you note, I made a comment after the OP's post but the time frame escapes me. I made mention of the NIB statement in my post following his, so it was there when I posted my reply.
As a bystander, I'm relieved that the OP had indicated that he would 'make it right' with the buyer, at least he acknowledges that there is an issue.
Probably the stickler with this for sale and wanted stuff is it relies on honesty and competency on the part of the poster to provide the correct information to prospective buyers. That isn't always the case and it's not always premeditated either. Sometimes, it's difficult to convey the actual condition/circumstances, especially in this case where there were never any pictures posted to accompany the descriptions.
I will say that the regulars on this site are all above board when it comes not only to posting but buying/selling stuff, however, because it's a publically viewed forum anyone can register and then offer items, one reason I always check the post count, but that don't mean everyone does.
My suggestion if you can entertain it, would be to require at least one picture of the item offered, especially if there are any issues, cosmetic or otherwise that may impact the sale.
Just a suggestion.
