No ref to quality.
It was decribed as what it was Philips Toucam 810B
no reference to quality. Its quality is the same as 90% of highstreet low
res webcam costing �10-20. I directly compared it with a Mikomi from Argos
reduced to �10 from �25 and the difference was negligible, I subsequently
returned it and bought a MS VX6000 for �49 which is obviously better. She
said she had a similar webcam and difference was like night and day and the
lens must be broken which it obviously isn't

said I would refund DOA within 7 days of receipt
no other conditions. I did ask her to return it using a cert of postage and
she used recorded that cost 60p more

I think she bought it on impulse as she asked me to send it asap as it was
urgent which I did, and then reconsidered on receiving item.

Used it for whatever urgent purpose she had, then sent back when no
longer needed?

Either way, just refund and resell.

Not always. I quite often get asked questions by potential buyers where
putting myself out a little would help a sale. Eg, quoting for
delivering larger items which I'd listed as "for collection only".
Buyers' feedback can be extremely useful when picking out the
timewasters who need to be avoided, from genuine buyers for whom it's
worth going that extra mile.
