Question eBay question

Have you ever had a buyer ask you if you can send another item with your stuff? The buyer purchased a item from another seller, but the seller doesn't ship outside of the USA, so he ask me if he could ship it to my place and then I would ship it all to his address.

I see several problems.

First I would reserve the right to open and fully inspect the contents to make sure you are not participating in anything illegal.

However if anything turns up missing or broken when it's finally delivered the other seller will most likely blame you.

Don't think I'd do it.

I wouldn't do it either, more because you could be getting set up to be scammed....

I'd say it's a SCAM. Don't do it!

If the buyer knew the other seller didn't ship outside the US, why did he purchase the item in the first place? Reminds me of someone in Mexico asking you to carry a small package in your luggage for his cousin in LA.

IMHO you have nothing to gain and considerable to lose by handling the other item.
