Default Anyone ever run into this issue before?

I have not experienced this problem with a stealth account.

A local person has bid on many items of mine and is the current high bidder and has also won a few already has sent a message telling me since they bought so much that they want to come to my home and pick up the items.

It is a stealth address and a stealth name.

I was thinking of cancelling the bids and telling them I do not meet with people due to safety issues but they wont buy it now items tonight already and have the stealth address, name etc.

Anyone run into this? How did you handle it?

I do not want to meet with anyone in person and surely do not want them coming around the stealth address with a twist to the address it would be an easy catch.

Any ideas?

Yes, you can definitely say you don't have local pickup but you would be happy to ship to them. I do this also Do you have your real street with a different house number and zip code??

Tell them your wife doesn't feel comfortable with this, so you'll meet them at the local grocery store parking lot.

Just offer to ship the items for free.

All one package, the cost would be minimal being a local shipment.

Good Idea is to say you are out of state doing business like one state or to be safe 2 states, and you usually take the merchandise packed up so all you have to do is drop off at the post office.... If you wanna make them happy maybe you can upgrade to priority mail shipping for free? Just a thought....

Thanks everyone.

Actually we are within 15-20 miles of each other and the address is stealth with a twist to the street number.

If they were to drive by the stealth address they would not find the home and probably would be reporting it.

Since I do a lot of antiques and collectibles I am thinking it is someone who is trying to find out who I am.

I can ship the items for free but I think I am more worried about the person just driving by the address and not being able to actually find it.

The stealth address is for example 123 stealth ave when the real address is 123 stealthvine ave.

your best bet is too say it is your company policy for safety. the End! pay and ship or receive non paying bidder mark.

Free shipping works well for these kind of folx. You can be clear that home pickup is a matter of privacy and you would prefer not to.

he/they could be planning on robbing you!!!
if you choose to do local pick up,make sure you meet in a bust crowded area,never your home,lets say outside a supermarket at teatime,take someone with you,just be as safe as possible
i heard a horror story about someone getting robbed on a local pick-up

dont mean to worry you but there are them sort of people out there

Am I wrong for thinking the buyer doesnt have the sellers address, only zip code?

They cannot see details unless they pull up info - and only phone number to reach you with that.

Complete stealth address and the house is not there.

If the buyer pulls the information and drives by the house the account will be toast as they most likely will report it to eb.

People have horror stories out there with meeting people even at McDonalds.

Craiglist is a nightmare for people doing this.


I think I may have fixed the problem by changing the address on the account to a PO Box.

Now if they pull the info they will get the PO Box instead of the street address.

I cannot offer free shipping because most of the items are heavy and even cost 8-14 dollars to ship across town. As of right now they are high bidder on tons of stuff.


Thanks everyone. This could be interesting.

Will keep you all posted as I have not run into this before.

I think the safety/life and time of the account is worth the extra bucks for shipping

if they are regular buyers and are happy with your items, just meet them at like a gas station or grocery store and give them their items. i wouldnt have them come to your house. they dont have to even know your name or address.

You are the one in charge, not them. Tell them you do not offer a pickup option and if they would still like to purchase you will be happy to ship.
