Any recourse with post office for damaged book w/out insurance?

Recommended Posts

I just checked the mail, and a book that I ordered from ebay just arrived; the wrapper looks like it's been chewed up by a machine or run over by a truck. It wasn't very expensive, and I didn't request insurance; I wonder if there is any recourse for this? It was mailed in a plastic mailing envelope which is slashed open on one side and chewed up/torn on the other. One side of the book has a deep crease from top to bottom and one corner is heavily scuffed and blackened.


Any experience with this?

Did you pay with Paypal?

Contact the seller include pictures. If they don't refund, file a complaint.


This. Insurance protects the seller not the buyer, so I would request a refund. You might have to pay shipping to return it, but you will get back the price of the book and original shipping to get it to you.
