I would personally refund and move on. They can spontaneously wear out for any number of reasons.
They can play fine for years then one day without warning squeak hideously. The little felt pads that hold the tape against the play heads can fall off. In terms of low probability of customer falsehood, I would say this one is pretty low and also audiobook listeners are in my opinion less likely to scam than the average person.
So I would believe them. I still sell a handful of cassettes each year. I refund immediately if a buyer says they have a problem. I still listen to them in my car, and even sealed, never used but older tapes can deteriorate in just a few years. They can have mechanical damage, the oxide can flake off the tape, they can be magnetically erased. Lots and lots of potential for problems.
