I have received a PM that says the sender sent me the wrong book. She apparently got 2 books mixed up when wrapping them. She wants me to forward the book I will receive to the right person and the other person will send me the book I ordered. She says she doesn't know a way for her to pay the postage for this.

What do I do about this?

She could personally send you the cost of postage. These things happen and if I wanted the book bad enough, I'd do it. This happened to me once and the person graciously sent the book on to the right person and I sent them stamps to cover the cost.

Or she should offer you a credit.

I mistakenly sent two books to one person by double printing the wrapper.  This person was kind enough to send the wrong book to the correct person.  Once that person received the book, I buddied the original person a credit.

How do you buddy someone a credit? I'm sure she'll ask and I don't know how to do it, either.

She should buddy each person a credit to cover postage costs.
