It was a transaction plain and simple, therefore, the buyer isn't required to return it. if the woman were to locate the buyer, and demanded the item(s) returned, then the buyer isn't required to give said item(s) back, unless, there was a contract of some kind, at time of sale. Once you sell something. that item is no longer yours, as you have sold all rights to it.

Umm... I never said she is required to give it back...

Well yeah, in the end it's her fault.  But ethically the buyer should realize they need to return the items they unknowingly "bought".

 

This also happened a few weeks back when somebody accidentally sold a watch case with a $10k wedding ring hidden in it.  The buyer returned it and it got all sorts of media coverage.

Ethics are Irrelevant in this case. It is not up to the buyer to fix a sellers mistake(s). it is up to the seller to make sure everything is in order, prior to selling said item(s) in question. That is what contracts are for. They are legal, and said actions can be taken depending on how they are written.

You can certainly see who here had a good upbringing, and who got the idea that it's perfectly OK to shaft their fellow man/woman. ;)

You don't understand what ethics are do you?  Actually you clearly don't...
