    I'd be very suspicious.

    Have you sent them a message to their eBay ID? Just telling you that their ebay ID is bigknickers73 isn't enough.

    Sounds well suspect. Why wouldn't they want you to have their address if they were on the level?

    And by the way, having their ebay name means sod all as well as ebay won't give you any details if it goes tits up. Even if you buy through ebay :lol:

    Yup... I've always been happy to give out my address whether buying or selling (obviously when buying though - need to get it! lol)

    Stay very very far awa my freind got done outa £25 with someone who didt want to give out 2 many "personal details"

    Looks like the deals off anyway.

    It's a "Suggested Guideline" for buyers to obtain this information, not a rule for sellers to give it.

    yeah thats what the seller said about the rules when i asked before proceeding. For all i know the deal could have went smoothly but for a saving of £4 it wasnt worth the risk lol

    Ok - I never use it - just from memory!

    But if they refuse to give it when asked, its a sure sign all is not well.
