I just had this entity hit the BIN on one of my listings, and immediately received an odd automated message about how to label the box (among other things).
A quick search came up with the results that this company buys items as an intermediary and then ships them to the buyer in Japan (though I wonder why the 'buyer' didn't buy directly from me since I offer international shipping ).
I ran across a few pages on the swamp talking about this entity as a buyer, and there were experiences that were all over the board. Some said they were fine, others said it was a complete nightmare to deal with them.
My worry is that I'll send this mpc to them (at a US address), and then potentially have a hell of a time if the 'buyer' in Japan has any kind of issue with what was purchased from me. And since I technically didn't sell it to the person in Japan, can I actually be held responsible if the actual buyer does have any kind of issue?
In my mind (a scary, scary place), I should only be responsible to get it safely to the buyer's address (in this case, the go-between's address). After all...I have no control over how the mpc will be handled/packed/shipped after it reaches the destination I send it to.
I just thought I'd pick everyone's brain on this one since it's a first for me (and sounds awfully similar to many CL scams).
