I think a man is trying to scam my husband.

My husband sold a car door on Ebay. We have a broken down Tahoe and he wanted to see of he could gut it and sell it piece part himself. So far so good. Well, he sold a door for 50 dollars. The shipping was over a hundred. It was sold cheap but people were going to make us pay to get it to the junk yard so any profit at all is good.

Then the drama began. The man said it was damaged in shipping. I sold an item once that was damaged in shipping and we got the UPS report right away. It has been a week and no report. We have , however, gotten emails from UPS stating they tried to stop by and inspect the door and the man has not been home. The man is emailing every few hours demanding his 160 dollars back. We only made 50 profit. We would lose money giving it back. We asked him to return the door and he said only if we pay him up front for the expensive shipping. We said no. Now he is trying to trash our name. We think he is up to no good. My husband took photographs of this door before shipping. It had some very identifying marks on it. My husband asked him to photograoh the unique areas and send him photos. He refuses and says he is the victim and shouldn't have to do that.

We got an email tonight saying UPS has investigated. They charged us 130 for some unknown reason we have to call about, but they said in the email that the damage claim was denied. The man is still demanding his money back and is still "furious" at his loss.

What do we do?
