i recently sent an item to a person from wisconsin. when sent the item was fine, but this person is claiming it's defective and wants the money back. i'm in michigan and the item was only for $75.00, minus shipping, since it's their word against mine is there really anything this person can legally do to me? since the item was fine i feel no obligation to returd the money, nor do i want the item back if it is now defective. the classified site i used clearly states that they are not responsible for the actual exchange of services or items, nor their condition. what i need to know is for the small sum of about $65.00 after the shipping costs were paid, can this person really engage a lawyer and cross state lines to try and get the money back when it's their word against mine? or would they end up spending more than it's worth in both time and money?



Damaged items?

Although the site may not be liable for the condition of goods, you as a seller would be if the person could prove the goods came damaged. As a practical matter, it would not be worth the person’s time to pursue this, except out of spite, and that rarely happens in these situations.
