    So what do you recommend my actions be?

    Now this person seems really dodgy but i have no idea what to do, i dont really want to loose out on the listing fee etc.
    What I said in #2 stands. You have to decide whether to risk it and potentially lose goods and money, or pull out and risk a strike, neg feedback and lost fees. I think I'd pull out.
  • All his auctions are paypal wins, 4 mobile phones rangeing from £80 to £120 in 6 days all via paypal. rest are mostly car service books and stamps.
    Don't send it. This has criminal written ALL over it.

  • just make something up. the guys not going to dispute anything. say he lives in a country you're not prepared to ship to, or he wanted it sent to nigeria or something.

    advanced search / item by bidder / include completed listings

    It sounds like if you play the waiting game, he will be suspended before he gets a chance to do anything harmful to you.

    So how is he paying for these things on PayPal then? How will he get his money back?

    If I was a gambling man, I'd wager he paid you through a credit card and will dispute the payment with his card issuer. Card issuer will reverse the payment, and paypal will deduct it from your account, along with a £7 fee for the trouble.

    I might consider holding off on the refund front for now. You will have to give this person a refund if you do not send the item, but as soon as you do they will be able to start a non-performing seller complaint against you.

    When would be the best time to give a refund then?
