Ive recently sold some brake stuff and in the listing specified UK only, also the full non UK exclusion list including PO boxes
One of the buyers took 2 weeks to pay and im in the process of parceling it up to send out tomorrow when i decide to google the address
Turns out the address is to a shipping company in Devon, who it would appear specialize in sending on mail to Eastern Europe and Russia.
A quick google on the shipping company( Zapp East Ltd) reveals a host of problems for ebayers sending things that then disappear. Some things seems amiss with this because the reports were that the buyer submitted a refund claim very quickly and were unwilling to wait any length of time.
Of course he may not be a scammer at all,simply looking to get hard to get parts and attempting to circumnavigate the exclusions list to do so. Not strictly against their rules but maybe just exploiting a loophole
I've reported all this to ebay and pointed out that their exclusion list fails to exclude this type of forwarding .I've also asked to see if i can simply refund him. Though to be honest i wouldnt be happy about sending him the stuff,even if it was totally legit. Just too many variables for me
