I shipped the item first class to the buyer & when I checked to see if it had been delivered it said undeliverable.
I contacted the buyer to have them check with their post office to find out what was going on when he informed me he meant to have me send it to another person at another address. When I told him I couldn't send the package to an address not on file he said he had two addresses on file at eBay/paypal. He said the person he wanted me to send it to had moved. When the package came back to me it said NO such number, that address didn't exist.
When I pressed him on the matter, to again check to see if maybe the numbers were wrong and to again send me the other address he had on file he replies with nothing in the email, it was just blank.
When I asked him what was going on, I would like to complete the transaction, instead of answering my questions, he asks me " can you send jib"
That was all it said in his reply.
I had no idea what that means so I googled the phrase as I thought is was texting slang (I'm not very knowledgable on that as I don't have a cell phone and don't text)
One of the answers google came up with is it is slang for marijuana. I didn't see any other answer that would explain what he meant.
He has 9 feedback and it all is positive like the transactions went through just fine.
Lets say for arguements sake, he did mean for me to send this item to the other address on file that belongs to someone else, he doesn't seem to care that the post office says his address doesn't exist.
His answers are conflicting, evasive and weird.
I almost feel like I am being punked. I'm not sure how to proceed. Either way I feel like I am going to get screwed no matter what I do.
Has anybody had this happen before or do you have any advice on how to handle this?
