    Unhappy Ebay Mistake - Any Advice? (Dont think I can do anything through)

    Seems I have done something so stupid, im kicking myself!

    Being selling some stuff on ebay

    I now cant find my processor anywhere (seem to remember putting the motherboard back into its box and the thought, oh dam forgot to take the proessor out, then I think I thought to keep it in there so it doesnt get damaged)

    So im sure I shipped the motherboard with the processor still installed

    The persion I sold it to, reckons its not there, dont believe that for some reason, He said he is not a theif and he has an i7 920, so he has no need for it, yet my processor is better (i7 965) and he could also sell it!

    Gonna be kicking myself for this one for ages, nothing i can do really, unless you guys can think of something?

    I don't think there's much you can do other than keep an eye on the buyer and see if he eventually sells an i7 965 on eBay and then have a go at his conscience.

    If you're 100% certain you accidentally shipped the board with the processor why not send him a bill for it but also with a postage paid jiffy for its return?

    I think you can just add the guy to your favourite seller list so you get updates when he lists things and keep an eye out, if he did keep the processor and has a brain he will list it under another account though. Think you might have to chalk this one up to experience unfortunately

    Also he'll probably sell the 920 rather than yours, and you wont be able to prove he's selling that because he's going to use the better one. Feel for you, annoying that people arnt more honest
