potential ebay scammer ?

Just sold a ps3 game on ebay and i checked the buyers details which it said london so i thought everything was ok but just 10 mins ago i received a message requesting the total payment details and the address has now changed to one in portugal WTF!

I clearly listed as uk only postage so is this a potential scam?

if they leave me negative will ebay help me and remove it ?

Possibly genuine but I personally wouldn't send. Send email stating that you have stipulated you only post to UK therefore cannot and will not post to Portugal.

my friend in Hungary has my address and hers on her ebay..so can bid and have things sent to me..or can ask sellers to send directly. Most do.

As Choc says tho if you dont want to just tell them?

Don't send it, you won't be covered
Cancel the payment and say it was a UK only auction
Report them to paypal/ebay

The problem is they can leave you neg feedback even if they are in a foreign country. buyer from Bulgaria but postal in uk as a courier company. wouldn't send,he left neg feedback, ebay are useless.
