I am fairly new to PBS. Up until today, I have had really great swaps. I received the incorrect book from a sender, marked it as Received the Wrong Book, and promptly messaged the sender. I have offered to return the book to her if she agrees to pay for the postage and have asked if she would send me the correct book.
I think what may have happened is that my book was sent to the person who was supposed to receive the book I got. My question is: should I just forget about the book that I originally ordered and try to get it from someone else, or should I have the original sender recover it and send it to me, or should I just ask for the credit back because that is probably the safest thing to do?
You can ask for the address of the person who should have gotten your book and a credit or postage to cover it, and then send it on to the correct person; they hopefully will do the same and you will both get your books.
For future reference, if you receive a completely wrong book, don't mark it as RWP until you have contacted the sender. You should find out if they mixed up shipments and are willing to help get them to the right person. You don't mark your book until you have actually received the one you ordered. If you never get it, they system marks it lost and you get your credit back. RWP -wrong book is for situations where you get the wrong binding, an ARC or something like the wrong edition.
