Sold used MacBook Air on eBay and got scammed
I sold a used MacBook Air on eBay in early May. The computer was in perfect working order. I packaged it and had my wife ship it via UPS with a tracking number and insurance. The buyer received the unit, and complained it wasn’t working. I informed him to take it to apple as it is fully insured. He refused and shipped it back. Upon receiving it, I was suspicious, so I took it to the Apple store (manufacturer). They informed me that the underlying cover was removed and swapped for another unit. The unit the buyer returned is not the unit I shipped. I contacted PayPal and opened a dispute and they sided with the buyer. I have 3 affidavits, proof from Apple the unit is not as shipped, and the UPS information. I am now out $988. What can I do?
