Bad expierience on Ricardo [not their fault]

Regrettably, first really bad experience on Ricardo. A seller in Kerzers insufficiently packed a stone-topped raclette grill and when it arrived, the top was broken in two. Immediately sent a photograph and asked for a refund. As she had 100% positive evaluation, I wrote and said it would be a pity if negative evaluation was given for the first time {by me} so if she would refund the whole amount, we would even give her positive evaluation and everyone would be satisfied.
Long story short, it turns out she is a policewoman : she wrote a hugely long email saying "blackmail is punishable under Swiss law up to 10 years in prison, even if it is only for CHF10.--"! She even copied in her work place, being the Polizei Kt. Bern.
Firstly, we would have thought the Polizei Kt. Bern had other things to worry about {well, we hope they have} than 10.-- worth of Ricardo goodies and secondly, it is not frowned upon to use one's workplace email address for personal transactions on Ricardo?
Input would be interesting for which TIA
