I recently sold an apple watch and within a few minutes after sale, I get an message via eBay from the buyer that they want to ship the watch to their son as a birthday present in a different state. No Way Jose. So obviously a scam. The buyer had a American last name, and wanted to sent to "son" with completely different Russian Last name. Interesting part is that the **person who messaged me wasn't the buyer**. I didn't even notice this at first. It was a completely random other user (who didn't even place any bids), who messaged me after the the sale. ' A newcomer to eBay might very well fall for this. Never send to a different address than listed on paypal, as it would cancel seller protection.
