ebay case opened against me, what are your thoughts

I listed a cell phone the first of may of this year. I was then contacted on May 3 to purchase. He made the purchase, received the item and left positive feedback. Well today I wake up and see he sent me a nasty message and opened a case against me. Saying the phone was damaged, not as described and he want's half his money back. He has had the phone for almost a month and a half. Why would he wait this long? Do you think he is scamming me? I escalated the case myself to ebay, cause I think he is. If he had a problem with the phone, he should have said something the day he got it. Not this long out.

What are your thoughts?

ETA- it had a high quality screen protector on it from day one and in a case from day one.

Ya I don't know how anyone can make a complaint after month and a half. If he had truly tested and satisfied with the phone why would he suddenly change his mind? Makes no sense. I say he either lost it or damaged it and wants to scam you instead.

Yea, thats what I figure. I hope ebay sees it my way. I can't believe he could open a case after this long.

Does eBay have a time limit like the 30day PayPal rule? I would imagine they do. I don't see why he would've left positive feedback if it were broken when he got it, I mean surely in a month and a half he would've tested it.

I don't see how he can do anything after leaving positive feedback. He won't win. I'm sure of it!

Sounds like he broke it and now wants to scam you. After a month and a half, I can't imagine ebay siding with him!

First of all, did he pay through PayPal? If so, and it's been more than 45 days, then PayPal won't be able to force you to pay him anyway.

And I agree.. he left POSITIVE feedback. Why would he do that if the item was damaged when received? Secondly, he had you ship it to his friend, how do we know the friend didn't damage it. Thirdly... yeah it sounds like a scam to me.

Let us know what Ebay says!

God bless!

What happened to the bulk of this thread? There were pages of responses when I last check yesterday evening!
