    And I think you know that.
    I didn’t order it, why should I be inconvenienced by the inability of the seller to actually cancel the order?
    Because of the law.
    Can you quote that bit of the law please?
    It's called theft.  You are retaining something which you know you haven't paid for.  

    But if you want chapter and verse:

    "Theft is defined by section 1 of the Theft Act 1968 as the dishonest appropriation of property belonging to another with the intention to permanently deprive the other of it."

    Hi,
    why would you want to keep when you had cancelled the original order?
    It’s a matter of principle, if you’re given too much change in a shop do you automatically run straight back to the shop?
    Yes, and have done.

    OP just trying to justify theft for something they ordered.

    I'm sure you would be up in arms if you paid for an item and they sent you an empty box.
  • OP - just out of curiosity, what is it ?

    No.  I check the change at the time I’m given it and query any discrepancy at the time.
    Which  particular principle are you referring to? 
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    I've had an item delivered this week from an Ebay seller where I cancelled pretty much as soon as I'd ordered as I spotted whilst ebay vehicle checker said it would fit on zooming right in on one of the images I could see it wouldn't.

    I've had confirmation of it being cancelled and the refund so have messaged the seller asking if they would like to collect it/send me a returns label.

    I'm not willing to pay for the return but 100% doesn't belong to me.

    If you have changed you mind and now decided that you want the item then contact the seller and arrange payment for it
    If you don't want the item then refuse delivery
