A: Not sure what they are contacting you about. I assume this is an ebay or similar tansaction. You would only be open for misrepresentation if he can prove the shoes aren't what they say they are and you willfully mislead him. If you talked by text now is a good time to download that. Also get a screen capture of the offer he responded to. If you said "label says..." as opposed to "these House of Wanque shoes..." you are impliedly warranting they are what they say they are.

A lot also depends on if you are a dealer in shoes or if you are just someone looking to sell old stuff.

Do you have some bill of sale from a dealer? That would help you. Your exposure is presumably the cost of the shoes. You can decide if that warrants you getting a consult from an attorney locally--which of course is the optimum course.
