Don't you mean the seller could claim it was not received.

Anyway, the card shows up in between two pieces of irregularly shaped cardboard that were taped together. The card was placed in a penny sleeve inside a toploader in between the cardboard. All is great except the seller didn't put anything on top of the toploader to keep the card from coming out.
Of course, I open the package and find the card hanging out of the sleeve and toploader and stuck to the tape that was there to hold the cardboard together. In addition, the card's top-left corner was exposed with no protection on either side.
I thought maybe I could get the card out and all would be fine. I carefully pull the card away from the tape and a couple of tiny specks of the card stayed stuck to the tape. That is also when I noticed that the top-left corner had been bent a bit.
The seller originally offered to refund the cost of the card if I shipped it back. I followed up by asking that he cover the cost of the card plus original shipping, and he came back saying that I had messed the card up and that he was offering no refund. He didn't budge a bit after that.
I just opened a case. Any idea if I will win this one or not? Thanks.
