I'm requested a few books from someone. But one they PM'ed me they were unable to send. Wish was fine and I asked them to cancel it so I could get my credit back. Today I got an email that it was enroute to me. I PM'ed the person to let them know.

I know I can wait it out and say never recieved to get my credit back. But is there anything we could do now???

Are you sure the book is enroute from the same person? If he or she canceled, the order (s) would have rolled over to another member (if available). Check your transaction archive, PMs, and the books enroute to you tab to see if it is the same member.

Yes, I'm betting it rolled over to another member. If they cancel it .... it'll roll over to someone else if another copy is available. If you cancel it, you would have gotten your credit back.

So I'm pretty sure the book IS enroute, but from a different member, and the only fair thing to do is when you get it mark it received so they get their credit.  It wasn't their fault and you'll know for next time that if you want your credit back you must do the canceling.
