**** shipment to "Ship Happens"?

I had someone buy an item I had up for auction this week but I'm having some complications. The add was "ships to U.S.", ...in other words, doesn't sell to non-u.s. residents.

The guy who bought it supposedly lives in Canada, according to **** "member since" he joined **** the same day he bought the auction item, therefore has zero feedback, has no confirmed address with paypal yet, and is asking me to ship the item to a place named "Ship Happens" in Washington just south of the border where he will pick up the item. Supposedly this is a shipping depot. They have a website, but it's dinky and I don't know if it's a legit business operation or if I'm just setting myself up.

I've never heard of this place. I'm trying to work with this guy and I've been sending email back and forth with him all week explaining that I will not ship to an unconfirmed address and the reasons why being "potentially getting scammed and getting a chargeback, losing my money and my item".

But, I might give the guy the benefit of the doubt if anyone here can verify they've heard of this place or sent packages there. Item was purchased for $70 so it's not a "ton" of money, but certainly more than I'd throw out the window.

Opinions? Know of this shipping company?

I never heard of it, and I can't say I blame you for being a little Leary of a name like that. Still I don't live in Washington, so It could be real?? Good luck!

Re: **** shipment to "Ship Happens"?

I've never heard of it. Seems to be a small business. And it's a P.O. Box.

Here's a forum website that talks a little about it: http://www.dualsportbc.com/forums/forum26/191.html

I'll see if any of my friends up north have heard of it.
