    As many of you know, I am selling my Tung on Ebay. There is a guy sending me weird e-mail through Ebay. He is talking about a PRS (Paul Reed Smith) guitar, that he absolutly want it and everything.
    We traded a few E-mails, I told him it is not a guitar and it's not a PRS either. He always E-mail back saying that he want it, that he will win the auction (he never bid so far) and that i can start packing it right now.
    Even though I prefer money order he want to pay via paypal.
    I'm kind of worried. He is just weird, what am I doing if he win?
    Is there anyway I can get screwed using paypal?

    I'm not really sure. I've done alot of transactions on eBay using PayPal & every one went OK. I usually like to ship to a confirmed address only because the confirmed address is the address that is on file with the credit card company & supposedly, you're covered. If you ship to an unconfirmed address, the buyer could turn around & say I never bought this & try to get his $$ back.

    I've shipped to an unconfirmed address to buyerd that had very good feedback & I've contacted people that they previously bought from.

    Personally, this guy seems weird & I'd stick to Money Orders only.
