Paypal WILL NOT protect you if you get scammed
Since this is now pinned I though I would revise it
-ORaNGe- buys my ego
he wants me to ship to 111 abc Ave.
the invoice says 555 xyz Ave.
if I ship to 111 abc Ave. he can claim I shipped to the wrong address and get his money back and the item. because Paypal doesn't know he really got the item.
following ripped from
Buyer want me to ship to an address other than his confirmed address.

I sold an item to a buyer in Canada. He has a confirmed address in paypal but is asking me to ship to another address. He says that he recently moved and can not change his address due to a problem with his credit card. Am I protected in any way if I ship an item to an address other than the one that paypal gives me? He is being very persistent that I ship this item to him and I am afraid that he is going to leave a neg. This item was also over a hundred dollars and the buyer only has 5 feedback. Any advice will be appreciated.

don't do it. I just got scam recently by ship to different address and buyer's bank reverse the payment transaction. I think someone hacked the buyer's account and therefore ask to ship to different address. The buyer may telling the truth, but you neven know. I lose alomost 280 and I need the back to buy gift. **bleep**.
