It definitely looks like feedback extortion. And it must have worked quite a bit, considering most sellers probably didn't care about the 2-3 dollar refund for shipping just to make the headache go away.

OR- and this just came to me, perhaps they were asking for the shipping refund so they could send it back? If that's the case, they really need to learn how to convey ideas clearly.
The buyer was overseas, so he had to pay EMS shipping on top of the auction amount (guessing $2-$3), so he MAY have paid quite a bit to receive it. That may be why he is asking for that.

Regardless, eBay will cover you. Part of a sellers "buy in" for using EMS is because eBay is protecting us against this very problem.
