    eBay Scam - Item delivered to Argos for Click and Collect

    eBay Scam - Item delivered to Argos for Click and Collect 5th Aug 18 at 12:05 AM
    My nephew has sold an old ipad on eBay and the buyer chose to have the item delivered to their local Argos store via the eBay/Argos Click & Collect service.

    The item was delivered a couple of days ago and is now showing as collected by the buyer.

    The buyer has opened a dispute stating that the packaging was open/damaged and the charger is missing. They are saying they want to return it for a refund.

    Something doesn't seem quite right to me... - Does this sound like a scam ? - Wouldn't Argos have made a note that the item was damaged when they received it if that was the case ?

    Anyone have any ideas what we can do?

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks everyone for your replies.

    eBay got back to confirm that they were refunding the buyer in full and also allowing me to keep the funds. They said that Argos should not have accepted the parcel if it had arrived damaged.

    I still think the buyer was trying to scam - They have in the end ended up with the ipad and a full refund. We haven't lost out though, which was our main concern.
