    Change name of person but not address 18th Jun 17 at 3:24 PM
    Hi,
    Just sold an item on eBay, and have been asked to send to a different name to the one on PayPal. Same address just different name, and trying to work out if it's safe to do that? just concerned that if there was an INR the buyer could claim I sent it to the wrong person, even though it's the same address?
    What would anyone advise?

    I didn't think of putting both names on that's a great idea, thanks Soolin

    Is it the same surname ? Some people use their second forename.

    An electoral roll check maybe ?
