My first question is: why wait a year? Person B should simply cancel the fir st check and send another, within 2 weeks.Â
Why the time delay?
Person A has lost his items, which could be sold elsewhere, and Person B has lost his credibility, which to my way of thinking is worth more than pretty much any old bike stuff.

OK friends...Â Â
Here is a situation that we all could find ourselves in.Â Â
Two reliable, mature & honest CR members agree to a transaction.Â Â
Person A ships object to Person B & he receives it.Â Â
Person B sends the correct amount of cash to person A.Â Â
Person A does not receive payment, it is lost in the mail. A year long wait prove this...Â Â
Who is responsible for the loss? Who is "out", the seller or the buyer?Â
