    IMO this'll turn into a stolen credit card scam. I await to be proven wrong. Positive feedback doesn't count at this stage. If its a credit card scam chances are the real owner will only know next week, or next month, depending when he gets his bill, then the chargeback will happen.

    If this is your deduction then I suggest internet trading and ebay in particular are not for you. You have no evidence of any wrong doing apart from making a deduction on what he is buying.......:confused:

    I have contacted the buyer asking a few questions, ill let you know how it goes.
  • I have a French buyer just now who has provided a different name/address on EBay and PayPal. Needless to say they will not be receiving the goods until I have a satisfactory reply to my query!
  • Matt,

    I wouldn't bother sending it recorded, if the item is Seller Protection "illeligible" it offers no protection at all - only for elligible transactions does it need to be sent recorded if you think you will need to take advantage of the Seller Protection Policuy

    Even without seller protection, you will not lose a paypal chargeback for goods not received if you can provide the relevant tracking number to paypal. You are just not protected from credit card chargebacks.

    Matthew, since the buyer is no longer registered on the eBay site, you
    may consider the transaction null and void. You can file for a Final
    Value Fee credit by taking the steps below:

    1. Click on the "My eBay" link located at the top of any eBay page. You
    may be asked to sign in.

    2. Under the "Related Links" section on the left side of the page, click
    on the "Dispute Console" link.

    3. On your dispute console, click on the "View" link next to the item
    you wish to close.
    **IMPORTANT: Please ensure that there is a check mark indicating that
    the item is eligible for credit. If you close the dispute that is not
    yet eligible for credit, you will not receive a credit**

    4. On the dispute page, click on "Close Dispute," and select the reason
    you are closing the dispute.

    I dont see the item listed there :'(

    No dispute was started, was it? All you need do is refund the payment and you're off the hook. You will then need to open a dispute against the NARUed buyer if you wish to get your fees back.
