Rifle lost in transit..... Responsibilities/ Return buyer's $$$ ?????
I sold a long gun thru Gun Broker and the buyer paid and I shipped the rifle via U.S.Mail, insured in early August. Now it appears that the rifle is hung up/ lost within the postal system. The rifle has been "in transit" for 19 days and it appears that it is stuck in one location. I have started a CLAIM with the Post Office, but that could take some time before anything happens. I have keep the buyer appraised of the issue, but he is now requesting his money back. He said that he would notify his dealer to not accept the rifle and have it returned to the sender, should it show up...... Am I obligated to return the buyers money at this point or is there another way to consider??........ .... I have advised the P.O. that if the rifle does not show up, I will have to report the loss to the local Sheriff's dept. and the F.B.I. ... ........ any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated, thanks.
