Is a scam?

In a previous post, I wrote about selling your textbooks
back using online companies. I tried Cash4Books. I was
quoted about $60 dollars for my books. I mailed them
in. About a week later, I received an update that they
had been received and were being processed. A few days
later, I found out that my geography textbook that I
was quoted $25 wouldn't be accepted because it had a
free copy mark on it...

I immediately was infuriated because I thought I had
fallen into a scam.

I had bought the book online through and
didn't recall any free copy marks on it. Were they taking
books from people and then reselling them without paying
for them? I contacted Cash4Books through email and very
quickly I received a response back by phone. They still had
my geography book and could send it back if I paid for the
media mail shipping. Fair enough. I also had them credit me
for the shipping cost when I mailed all my books to them. You
can either mail your box and get a credit or send your box with
a prepaid shipping label. The customer service manager was
very polite and did everything she promised. My credit was
in my account within a day. I will use them again. Cash4Books.

Update!! Since I made this post in 2007, I've continued
to use Cash4Books.
I've recommended it to several friends
and they've had good success with it
as well. If you're
