Stalking Your eBay Seller Probably Not A Good Idea
from the just-saying... dept
Hey, not every transaction on eBay works out the way the buyer and seller hoped. There are ways to deal with that in a civilized manner... and that probably doesn't include showing up at the seller's house with a gun (the gun was left in the car, he didn't take it out) and angrily demanding your money back... especially when they already offered to send you your money back in the mail. However, that is apparently what happened. The buyer as so angry over the quality of a set of glasses that despite the promise to refund his money, the guy drove from Pennsylvania to Kentucky to demand $100 (the glasses had been sold for $59). The guy was later arrested and acquitted, but turned around and sued saying that his rights were violated. The court has mostly disagreed, other than to say that the police might not have had probable cause to arrest him in the first place.
