Default Interesting Transaction...what would you do?

Wondering what you guys think on this one. Did I avoid getting scammed? Is this neg worthy for the buyer?

Back on Aug 8, I sold 2 cards for $510 to a newer boardmember. I promptly shipped priority mail w/ signature confirmation and on 8/11 usps attempted to deliver but there was "animal interference" so they couldn't deliver. After a couple days of seeing it not delivered, I PM'd the buyer to let him know the package was at the post office and he needed to pick it up. Another week goes by...still at usps. I PM the buyer again. Another week, same thing. I probably sent 3 or 4 PM's over the span of a month without getting a reply and seeing that the package was still at the post office.

Finally on 9/15 I get a response from the buyer that he was away longer than expected and asked if I had received the package yet. I let him know it's still at the post office and he responds that he'll pick it up in the next couple days.

A couple more weeks go by, package is still at usps. I'm beginning to fear that he has the package and usps never scanned it when he picked up. It's early October and it seems odd that usps would hold a package that long. I do a little digging and see that the buyer's ebay account is now suspended by ebay.

Fearing a paypal chargeback and never seeing the cards again, I called usps last week and asked them to locate the package and if they found it, return it to the sender as it's been sitting at the post office for almost 2 months. I received the package back yesterday with both cards and refunded the buyer the full purchase amount this morning. However, I'm little disappointed by having to give a full refund because over the last 2 months, the 2 cards have declined in value by $100-$150. Should I just be grateful that I didn't get hosed out of both the cards and then hit with a chargeback?

Sorry for the long post...just needed to share this and get your opinions.

If the cards went up in value would you send him some? No, so just be happy you got them back and leave a negative

Very odd situation. I wouldn't have let it sit for so long but I would at a minimum give him a neutral. A lot of time and money wasted in my opinion.

not sure about paypal, but if it's an ebay transaction buyer protection will get voided. it's buyer's responsibility to pick up the package.

Wait why is it a negative? It's not his fault, it's the post offices and the sellers. The seller is responsible to get the item delivered. If animal interference caused a delay the seller should have called it back after a couple of weeks. You let it sit there just as much as he did and had you acted sooner the outcome would have been totally different. You could have called it back, or pushed for delivery in which either way you're protected. Had he opened a case after doing nothing then that's different, but he didn't.

I love how this is the seller's fault. After 2 months, the seller is to blame.

What? How on earth is this the seller's fault? The buyer's home situation is the reason it wasn't delivered, and he was notified to pick it up.

Just when you think you heard everything. NO WAY this is the sellers fault.

I'm hoping you read the original post backwards... or it's opposite day where you live.

OP - did the original buyer say he was going away for a while?

No. He told me a frew times that he would pick up the cards. Then after going silent for 2-3 weeks, he PM'd me on 9/15 and said he was away longer than he had expected and that he would pick them up. It was about 2 weeks after that when I noticed that his ebay account was suspended...which was the final red flag for me so I had usps locate the package and return it.
