eBay Buyer Request - Am I missing something here?
Short of it:
Listed a set for auction and it had 0 bids. A person messaged me and asked if they placed a bid for the current list price if I would end the auction early. I gladly obliged since my list price was close to what I wanted to sell for anyways.
Buyer messaged me after I ended the auction and is requesting timely shipping, that the item is clean, that there is no eBay invoice or other documentation included, and that I add signature confirmation. The buyer requested that I ship to specified address, but it is the confirmed address used by the PP account. The buyer has over 5K feedback for purchases - no items for sale or seller feedback. Member since 02.
I realize this could be completely legitimate and probably is - it could be a gift or something the person is quick flipping through some other avenue or eBay account. Something just seems off about it though. It feels like a drop ship to me, but as far as eBay and PP are concerned it all checks out. The buyer just seems a little too persistent though - I got detailed instructions sent to me like three times and of course they want it ASAP.
I only do a small amount of hobby reselling when it comes time to clear some room - just want to make sure I'm not missing something blatantly obvious that maybe some of you Pros have ran into in the past. I think everything is fine but wanted to run it by you guys first.
Thanks - Any help is appreciated.
