I am in England and sold an item on ebay to a buyer in Scotland.


Payment was by PayPal and delivery was made by a courier.


The buyer is now unhappy (as they didn't read the description properly) that the laptop they bought is broken.


The listing described the problems perfectly and said the laptop was "for parts or not working".


Therefore I have no issues about defending this, should it go to court.


However, the issue is which law applies: England and Wales or Scotland?



I am not acting in the course of a business.

What is he quibbling over exactly?


The laptop was listed as "for parts or not working" in the condition field.



In the description,



I said the laptop switched on but overheated so was selling the whole thing for parts or not working only.



Buyer complained the battery was at the end of it's life (although still working) and created a PayPal dispute.

batteries are not covered by any warranty whatsoever



and as you did mention anything concerning the battery

in your description



he has no chance.




please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
