did he ask you to insure it or anything for shipping? If not..then for all you know his claim is against the shipping company. Realizing he broke it..he'* got nothing to stand on.

Yep,sounds like he'* SOL to me too. He should know there are no warranties on ebay unless stated. Remember,you can respond to the neg feedback he leaves.

Well, can you share it with us??? This bonehead doesn't have a legal bone to stand on! I've been through it before on Ebay and he is blowing smoke up your behind.

Probably nothing wrong with the motor you sold him. It sounds like this sucker is hard up for cash. Is this individual your dealing with a newbie to ebay, or is he a fellow that is in good standings with ebay with positive feedback? After 9 weeks, and him trying to threaten you with an attorney, he has no legal ground to stand on! All items are sold AS-IS with no warranty expressed or implied.

For all you know he could be trying to send you back the part that he replaced! If you don't specify a warranty on eBay as a seller the buyer should always assume none. Generally eBay auctions carry no warranty expressed or implied on the part of the seller (unless otherwise stated by the seller). Have heard of Paypal offering a buyer protection but again that doesn't fall on you as the seller.

Alert EBay to the fact that someone may be trying to commit fraud.
