ST. LOUIS -- What seemed like an ordinary eBay transaction to one St. Louis man turned into a heartwarming interaction with the customer, 86 years old and new to online shopping, according to KTVI.
Matt Shoukry sold a VCR to a man in Phoenix for $40 and didn't think much of it.
“There is a need for VCRs out there because it's something you can’t go to Best Buy or Walmart and get…,” Shoukry said.
Shoukry said he typically sells items, gets a rating and review from the buyer and moves on.
But not this time.
Shoukry said his girlfriend brought in the mail last Saturday and found a handwritten letter from the VCR's new owner, a first-time eBay user.
“It caught my eye because it had a hand-written address on the outside,” he said.
Shoukry read the first few lines and told his girlfriend they needed to read the letter together.
