So had I until I sold a 1000 dollar video card to Australia, and the guy had a bad address listed in his paypal account.
I sent the item, with tracking, etc, via USPS with customs forms, etc...
He claimed he never got the item. When I checked the tracking number it showed it was at the post office in Australia, "undeliverable address".
He put in a dispute with Paypal. I sent them all the forms I had, from customs, USPS, even the tracking number and status. They gave him a refund, with no real explanation to me. But I still didn't have my item.
Fast forward 6 months, I get my video card back finally from USPS. Now the value of the card is around 500 dollars, and I have a negative balance with Paypal, as I took the money out as soon as the transaction cleared, as does everyone I assume.
