I've had a buyer say they didn't know they were buying the item... you click buy it now and then asked to confirm order...

I can honestly say I never get excuses.

I get alot of NPB but I never get an excuse for them. Auto assisstant opens a case on day 4 and closes 4 days later. I never receive communication from the buyer.

I have used one of the weirdest excuses myself and it's a true story, so here it is:

I have a Samsung Ultra series laptop that has a touch screen(Very fancy, very fancy) and after some time it broke, the aluminium hinges of the lid just snapped in half and I had to get it repaired. When I got it back from warranty everything was working fine BUT every time I closed the lid, the screen would become active. Sometimes it started playing random Youtube videos, other times BBC Radio 4.
So this one Sunday morning I wake up and come downstairs to check my sales and I have couple of messages, couple of sales- The usual.
Then I see a message about combined invoice that a SELLER has sent me. Odd.
I see the invoice and it looks like I've just bought 7 different items, totalliyng 480.
The seller has already sent me a message saying how he could sell me even more and that I'm a wonderful client and when I explained to him that it a mistake, caused by a broken touch screen 7 Series... Well, let's say he wasn't too happy.
True story and everything, I felt so ashamed!
It has happened once or twice after that incident where I come back to my laptop and it's added something to my basket or I just have 3567327 tabs open with advertisements playing in the background.

I sold a box set of DVD's for 35 and sent payment information to the buyer. It was their first transaction so I was keen to assist and offer advice.

She denied that she had placed the bid, called me a liar and told me that under no circumstances she would have paid more than 20 for the DVD's and wasn't going to pay for them.

She then added me to her list of preferred sellers?

I relisted the DVD's and they sold for 42. I felt like forwarding her the proof but thought better of it in the end.
