Just sold a Red derailleur. Panicked when I got the 'your item sold' email because it had a US address in it. Turns out it's a US registered account but they want me to send it to an address in Whitechapel.
OK fine. But. The eBay account appears to be registered to a dentist in California. The person I'm supposed to be sending it to in Whitechapel is clearly not the same person (totally different name).
Seems fishy. Presuming I get paid, will I be protected if I send it to the address they've given me? It will be going signed for.
Was it expensive?
If you'd got someone's account details you'd more likely buy some £300 thing that can be resold for cash I presume, not a used derailleur for £20
Take a lot of pictures I suppose
Ebay have told me previously that as long as the request is made via eBay messaging they’ll cover it as they can see the chat.
Might be worth checking that’s still the case.
