The people in question had the option of settling this within the scope of Paypal without destroying the instrument. The buyer returns the instrument, the vendor returns the money. It's that simple. Either they buyer was an ass or the seller was (I suspect the buyer in this case).
In either event, the seller should be looking at a small claims action against the buyer for the instrument. Hopefully this can be done cross border.
Note to self, if I ever sell something using Paypal, make sure to empty my Paypal account immediately upon receiving the finds. Paypals dispute resolution method is too heavily weighted in favour of the buyer.

“You can use the donate button to raise money for a sick cat, but not poor people” - ah, good to see PayPal stay true to its founder's whackjob libertarianism.

PayPal can reach into your checking account or credit card and remove your funds if it wants to. If you empty a dedicated PayPal checking account (as I do) it can create an overdraft.

Wanna REALLY get pissed at PayPal? Top up an overdrawn account after their debit - and pay the bank fees.

Yeah, I very specifically set up the bank account I use for Paypal as a no overdraft allowed account, and there is no credit card backing it up.
I never did trust the buggers.
