Other than an email address you've given me NOTHING to go on. There's honestly nothing I can do at this point. I've yet to be shown anything that says he's doing something wrong.

he send me payment through PayPal for 150 dollars over my asking price and wants me to ship it to someone thats not even his name or address.( typical online scam) Its already been reported to PayPal. Just wanted to inform you guys before someone gets screwed if you want to ban him or not i did my part to let sellers know.

Long as you got your money, (alot more that you wanted) ship it to where ever he wants. Put tracking on it and if he doesn't get it for some reason, you did your part and done what he asked. He has more to lose than you. (jmo)

How so? Reason I ask is that by default paypal requires you to ship it to the confirmed address for there seller protection. If you ship it to some other address, you are not covered. If the idea is that he asked for a diff address to ship to, at that point it becomes a situation of who does paypal want to believe.

If however you know of something I am missing in regards to that please let us know as that is a main reason I have not done a few deals here due to that.

no no NO! Don't do that, ever!

If you ship to any address other than the one confirmed on their PayPal account. They can claim they never received it, even though shipping shows they did, file a claim and YOU'RE stuck giving them a refund. And you're out whatever you shipped.

*confirmed and verified aren't exactly the same but you're covered as a seller if they have either and that's the address you ship to.*

PM sent to Raceway00. He's only got one option, that's to post in this thread.

He obviously knew how to send PM's, so he would know when he logged in that he has one in his inbox. He chose to ignore mine, and now he's gone.
