    Regarding a refund: It all depends on the payment route you followed, really. Was it via PayPal? If so, you're covered - both original payment and return shipping (up to £15 though). Let us know and I might have more advice on what to do.

    Hope everything turns out well eventually, Discogs overgraders has become a plague that needs to be dealt with.
    Thank you - yes it was a PayPal transaction - that's good to know - thank you and anymore advice gratefully accepted!

    Have a look at this link - I've not used this service before (and in fact never heard of it before) but it might be a way to get some of your postage cost back >>>> https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/refunded-returns

    Good luck.
    thx buddy! I'll have a look at that and I certainly won't be purchasing from them again lol

With enough proof of the seller's wrong doing (pictures, audio files, correspondence) PayPal will rule in your favor most of the times.
    Cheers - that's a good point - I will photograph everything to cover myself!

    Feel free to contact me privately D. Maybe I know the seller and can mediate? Unfortunately, my days of knocking on doors are behind me. LOL!

    I could do with your advice/help. I bought 4 records from a Canadian seller on discogs which were all described as NM/NM- however they arrived none were in that condition. VG+ at best (all covers scuffed/dirty and records covered in scratches and finger prints).

    I paid a lot in postage too - $56 - maybe that was a bit high and I should of seen this coming or not? Anyway I contacted him about the condition of the records and he offered me some money back to keep them ($30 - I paid $116 in total with postage). I don't have any use for battered records and so I've declined and want a refund but he seems to be saying that he wont refund the postage, so only refund me $60 and again it seems (although I'm not totally clear) that he is expecting me to pay the postage of sending back as well. He also won't refund me til he gets the records back. This all seems a bit unfair as I paid him upfront with no question,

    So is it fair/right that I can't have a refund until he gets the records back and is it fair that I have to foot all the postage costs even though it is his fault as the records aren't as described? What would you do?

    Thank you in advance for your advice

    The same thing has happened with me, with records, and also another time with trainers.

    Take pictures of all records, and go in with all the information to paypal. They usually side with the buyer and not the seller and you will get a full refund for everything that you paid and to keep the items. When the seller finds this out they usually sort shit out very quick
