Udate on my bad ebay transaction

For those of you who remember, I posted awhile ago about selling some expensive art work on ebay for super cheap so I could quick fund some diapers.
Long story short, it was one of my first few times selling, and I didn't know about DC and didn't get it.
The woman writes me saying she didn't ever recieve the item and that I need to refund her. I was unable to muddle through ebays bylaws enough to tell if paypal protects the seller and refunds the buyer, or if that was up to me to do. You all indicated that it was up to me.
We had two or three emails where I am telling her to please just give it a bit before demanding a refund (She originally emailed me like a wk after I shipped telling me to refund her.)
So, she writes me a super snotty email saying it's up to me to pay her back and ya-da-ya-da. By now three wks have gone by?
Anyhoo long story short as promised
After she emailed me the snotty email, I emailed her a kind letter saying she was totally right that I was at fault and I would gladly refund her the money since three wks had gone by and no art had come.
She got her money back and I never heard from her again.
I'm so pi**ed. I feel like if someone wrote me and just said you know what, you're totally right here's your money, I would at least acknowledge that. A simple frickin thank you would be nice, or I got the refund or something.
Now I just totally feel scammed and I'm BITTER.
A wk later she's demanding a refund? I tell her to wait a bit please....and then after three wks of her threats and crap I tell her she's right, I'm wrong, here's your refund. I'm soooo poor now.
Did I mention I'm BITTER?

That really sucks and i'm sorry
d/c is so important because some people are just dishonest and want stuff for free and w/o the d/c they can claim the item didnt come just to get the item for free and then get their money back, just know, things do not go unseen and there dishonest hearts will get whats coming to them

i wish d/c could be somehow private, like only the sender would know if it has it or not.

No kidding. That would be a good idea.

I'm sorry... that just totally stinks.

I'd write a nice note with the underlying demand of "did you get your money, I don't see it as being claimed in my paypal."

Re: Udate on my bad ebay transaction

No no....she TOOK my refund.
I just feel like since my note to her said "You are right, I'm sorry, here is your refund" and very little time had passed since she first started demanding one, she could at least write me a thank you, or a payment recieved, or something. The fact that she just took the refund with no acknowledgement of it just triple makes me think she sucks.

Re: Udate on my bad ebay transaction

That's a great idea. I haven't listed on ebay since this incident, but your suggestion might just help me get me sea legs back!
