    You better be honest if you dont want a bad rep, also if you tell him it's real you probably have to send the money back so you will loose money with paypal fees if you use them.

    so i would be honest and just relist the item :)

    yea thats why im probably going to not do this anymore after i sell my last 2 things....it was quick money though :( and easy but it doesnt feel right

    anyways, should i just be straight up with him and ask for not a bad rep

    or should i be like i bought it for really cheap at a flea market in California so it probably is fake

    Nope. Just be honest and cancel the transaction or you could get into big trouble with PayPal. I'm assuming you don't want your account frozen for 6 months!

    Tell him that at the time you posted the auction you thought it (they?) were authentic. Play nice and dumb and say you've done some research or someone you know saw the item and told you it was fake, and that you're sorry and will give him an immediate refund/and or cancel the auction. Anyone with that many inquiries has too much time on their hands and will go to the ends of the earth to cause you grief in my experience!

    Thank the gods for second chance offers. ;) I would just ignore him and if he tries shit, file a non-paying bidder claim. He did win the item, which means he is bound by contract to pay for it per ebay's TOS. You're in the right here, not him. If he was gonna bombard you with stupid questions he should have done it before he bid.

    I'd tell him you believe it is the real thing but don't know for 100% sure because you bought it second hand as well...

    In this case you just play dumb, tell him the place you purchased it from told you it was real & it looked real to you. Then let him know you'll do whatever he wants to accomidate him. If he wants to return it, good. Just cancel the transaction & sell it to someone else
