Suggestions please?

I did a BOB exchange and got the wrong books from the other person.  I offered to send them on if she would buddy me a credit, but she says she has none to give.  I don't want the the other person to not get their books, but I don't feel I should have to send them at my expense. Shoud I just suck it up and send them on anyway?

Thanks for your input!

I'd just let her know that you will hang onto them until she has one to send, and remind her that they can be purchased in the kiosk. You could also suggest a money order to cover the postage. Personally, I wouldn't just send them, then you would be out the books you sent (because you sent her books in exchange), the books you orderd, and the money for postage to send them to the correct place. It was her mistake, it is her job to fix it, and that entails paying for postage one way or another.

Did she send the books you ordered to the person who ordered these or does she still have them?

She PM'd me today after I told her she could buy a credit in the kiosk saying she had no money to buy a credit.  Ugh! I feel bad that I have someone elses books, but I guess I will post them and hope to at least recoup the cost of sending her BoB, that she got and gave me positive feedback for.  I guess I need to give my first negative feedback...I hate doing that, but sheesh!


ETA-  She "guesses" that the other person got my book, so she doesn't have it anymore.
