So getting to the skinny I ordered a PSU off a gentelmen on this fourm.  He sent it 3 day mail and it arrived today.  The box looked slightk y rough but the contents wher well packed and didn't jar around.  Needless to say I got it home and it's RMA material.

Now I could bitch to the seller and demand money back or take his offer of just paying shipping for a replacement (he had two). But instead I thought hell let's file a claim. I filed online sending a welp of photos of the packageing, the item and supplied then with screen shots of the deal s pms as well as the bitcoin TX ID. I also threw in a link to the TX as well.

Now here is where it gets crazy.  I'm talking with my father in law about all of this.  All the while he's telling me "be prepared for no responce then all of a sudden a NO". Moments later I receive a call from the usps. I expained to them I used crypto to pay for the item. Also expressing my concern over if they view it in any form of value.

Whereas it is not "Legal Tender". It is an item of value and has a price tag.  Go figure they are going ahead with the claim.

Monday I will go down and show the post master it doesn't work.  More then likely with a paperclip in hand to show it's a paper weight.

I will update this as shit starts rolling

IF I shipped you the PS for free, would you expect USPS to tell you to "Get lost?" I highly doubt it. Just because you paid in peanuts (to them) it still has a "value" Just like a car has a blue book, almost anything that is a normal product has a used value, etc.

At least thats what I would think!
