For the more musical in the audience, the label attributes the violin to Maurice Bourguignon.
This is entirely typical (if one is to believe the endless parade of PayPal-bashing commentaries) of PayPal's behaviour towards the relationship between buyers and sellers on eBay; in essence, if there is a dispute, the buyer is right, the seller is wrong. And no correspondence will be entered into (as they say). Indeed many comments to the Regretsy page have suggested that the destroyed violin may not even be the one dispatched by the seller, thus the buyer would be the proud owner of an antique violin AND a nice shiny refund.
Of course this is the same PayPal who's current President Scott Thompson will become Yahoo! CEO on Monday next week.
In an update to the Regretsy piece, the author noted that PayPal is now (finally) looking into the matter. One assumes that PayPal will be requesting the buyer send all the pieces back to the seller (at the seller's expense, of course) and will then consider the matter closed.
