buyer on ebay wants me to send ps3 to diffrent address

So this guy contacted me after he bought it saying that he wants me to send it to a different address, (not his papal confirmed address).
The ps3 has been paid for but the money will not be released to me until he has left me positive feedback because paypal consider the transaction "high risk" when did they start doing that?

Just wondering if i am taking a risk in anyway by not sending to the confirmed address?

Dont do it! Dont do it! Scammers delight a free PS3 because someone 'hacked' their Paypal and changed the address excuse. Contact the buyer by telephone, explain that you can only send to the Verified address for both parties benefit. If they dont agree, relist. Theres even the reason on Ebay for pulling out of the transaction 'buyer attempted to ship to non verified address'

First thing he is gonna do is claim non-receipt to his confirmed paypal address. When paypal ask you for prrof of postage, it will have a different address on it. PayPal will refund him and he will have the PS3....Post it to his confirmed PayPal address regardless and make sure you do it via a courier so that you can produce a tracking reference number and this will also proove as receipt of goods, otherwise you are leaving yourself wide open to be conned.

I'd have done it only if you'd bypassed Paypal and he was the one taking the risk by making sure you already had the cash. As that's not the case I agree with everyone else use the paypal address and keep proof of postage or pull out altogether.

depends if you have expanded seller protection.....

i think it comes into play for everyone soon but at the moment just for powersellers

soon unconfirmed addresses will be a thing of the past for everyone

DO NOT SEND OUT THE GOODS! This is exactly how I got ripped off on a Wii last year - the "buyer" paid from a hijacked account and then sent his "son" round to collect the Wii from my house. I got the thieving toerag to sign a receipt to say he'd collected, but Paypal did not accept this and I lost £180. Nowadays, I only send to verified paypal addresses.

It did seem a bit dodgy, thought I would check with the helpful people of hukd

Thanks everyone! :thumbsup: rep all round

all they have to do is

LOG into there paypal on a friends PC/laptop send you the payment. You send to there 'other'' address and he claims someone used his account.

Or

They could tell there credit card company it was a fraudulent transaction and you end up losing out as the money will get returned to sender.

top tip..

1. ONLY send to confirmed address's
and
2. never accept paypal if there collecting. CASH ONLY

First thoughts would be dont do it, however starting today sellers no longer need to send to confirmed addresses
ebay.co.uk

From 7th October, eBay.co.uk sellers will no longer need to post to confirmed addresses in order to be eligible for Seller Protection. PayPal is also making several other improvements to Seller Protection, such as removing the annual coverage limit and more. Learn more about Seller Protection. These changes are available to all eBay.co.uk buyers and sellers at no additional cost.

I would still not take the risk. When my case was being investiated Paypal clearly told me that the final decision rested with the credit card issuer. Therefore, as they do not wish to swallow the cost of the fraud themselves, the credit card issuer will demand the money back from paypal in any event. And dont think that if you clear your paypal account there is no money to take, right? This won't work as you simply end up with a negative account i.e., -£180 which you then get chased up for by Paypal.

As a seller, I will always continue to send to the paypal registered address, especially if it's a valuable item.
