    listing a faulty item 17th Nov 19 at 8:28 PM
    I'm listing an item that is part faulty, it may or may not be fixable by someone with the right knowledge.
    How do I counter someone trying to repair it, failing and then returning it with claiming another fictitious faulty?

    I intend to fully list the issue in the item description also.

    List it as parts, so for instance if it is a camera don't list it as a camera, go though the options until you find parts /spares or other. Then say for parts or repairs only, or NOT WORKING in title, also in description and condition. Do not give any indication at all that it is repairable, just keep it as this does not work.

    List all the faults and damage you are aware of but make it clear again that there may be more as this DOES NOT WORK
