Ethical question about a webcam

My question is should I return the camera or try and sell it??? I have a webcam that I got for an online class, the class is over and I no longer need it. I have all the packaging, disk and paperwork, PLUS the receipt. Should I take it back and get the money put back into bank account, or just try to sell it?? I have had it listed on CL for about a week with no responces. Want it out of my house, but would like some $$ for it b/c it was only used three times.
DH says take it back, but I would hate to be the next person getting it, although everything is there and it works just fine.

IMO Do not take it back because that is stealing. It's like clothes, you can't buy them and use them until you out grow them and then take them back. Try and list it on ebay.

I agree with PP, don't take it back. I would continue with CL and perhaps try eBay as well. You might get more responses there.

Re: Ethical question about a webcam

I agree with the other posters about taking not returning it. Just sell it somewhere. If it was needed for part of the class then you should just think of it as part of the schooling fee. If you don't want to waste time looking for a buyer you can always give it away. Find out if you have a freecycle in your area.

I wonder if someone taking the class next semester would buy it.

Re: Ethical question about a webcam

What about selling it on campus? My school has a board where people can put signs up to sell things. Someone else who is taking an online class might want it
