Violin destroyed 'on PayPal's orders'
It came to light after the blog Registry got access to an email from Erica, who was the original owner of the violin.
In the email, she explains that she sold a French violin for $2,500 (approximately Â£1,600) but the buyer disputed its authenticity.
Instead of returning the product as is customary, Erica alleges that PayPal ordered the buyer to destroy the musical instrument.
They somehow deemed the violin as 'counterfeit' even though there is no such thing in the violin world," she writes.
"The buyer was proud of himself, so he sent me a picture of the destroyed violin … it is beyond me why PayPal simply didn't have the violin returned to me."
PayPal responded by issuing a statement.
