    buyer bought expensive $800 item. paypal payment says confirmed address to Pakistan and seller protection eligible.

    I can tell his account is hacked. The account is from 1997 (usually all old accounts are from California) and has 2,000+ feedback.

    I called paypal and they couldn't tell me much since it's someone else's account but they pretty much confirmed it was odd and that they probably shouldn't of made it seller protection eligible. Nonetheless, they tell me if i want to ship it out I can since I'm covered through seller protection.

    I want to ship out because I got a really good sale price and it is seller protection eligible. But, how do I do it safely?
    If I am missing something here, fill me in....
    I plan on getting insurance so if it's lost I'll be covered.
    I plan on shipping method that will require signature and state the exact address it was delivered to. So I am cover for unauthorized and item not received.
    I just need to make sure I get item back if customs fees not paid.
    And if buyer states not as described, he has to mail back exact item in same condition or he won't get refund.

    So what can be the problem? Am I missing anything here?

    If you feel like you are in a scam, give your buyer a refund.

    Reasons I would not ship..
    - PayPal will back stab you, they do not have your best interest
    - International Insurance Claims are a pain in the ass (I only ship within the 50 states for this reason)
    - A return "item not as described cases" is your word against mine scenario.. Trust me
    - Scammers like to over pay = "good sales price"

    At the end of the day it is your decision.

    if u think something is wrong go with your instinct cancel the payment and ask the buyer to use escrow.com they accept shipping and they dont provide refund if he rejects it well your suspicions are confirmed

    Once an item enters a third world country like Pakistan, say farewell to it.

    im with bling bling, once the package is overseas, its gone, especially with paypal. i have been stabbed in the back many times by them, even with all proper information etc, ive had people pay me using vpn and then claim as unauthorized and paypal instantly sided with them and there wasnt really anything i could do about it

    Hello Whyyoumad, i think this comment by Midtownman is the simple truth.
    Scammers like to over pay = "good sales price", which is why they are mostly likely to pay higher than the required price.

    But since you've protected yourself as much as possible, you can give it a trial.
    Goodluck
