I had a Zero feedback bidder from Canada hit the BIN on a redemption card, total sale $30. 6 days later dude hasn't paid, today I file a NPB, this afternoon he paid. His feedback is now 1 but it was a seller that said NO COMMUNICATION NO PAYMENT.

A little background on the buyer. I saw a post on the HI (Hobby Insider)site & the name looked familiar & sure enough it's him. He's posting about buying a bunch of auto's on the cheap on E-Bay. I post in the thread "Small world, the auto you purchased on the 20th was mine (this was on the 24th), let me know if you don't want it & I'll cancel the auction". Didn't hear a word from him on e-bay nor on the thread. I had 2 people from the site PM'd me saying beware of this guy. They had thier FB dinged by him after he made false claims on E-Bay. They both said he has multiple ID's so he's going to be impossible to fully block.

I want to insure he gets the package & I think USPS International Express mail with signature is my only option, it'll cost over $20 to ship but at least as the seller I'll be protected.

Do I have any other options that you know of to get tracking of the package because that's really all that's required?

Normally I ship stuff to Canada that's under 100$ vial 1st class mail & have had no problems. That's comming to an end quickly because of one bad apple.

I know it's a long winded story but I don't want my 100% fb dinked by a scammer, let me know what you think, please.

Think I paid 18 something to track a. $100 card to Canada with sign. Just to be safe! I all know is the new custom forms can bite me, after you fill out the form the PO has to type it into the system, took 20 minutes for 4 packages, at $3.13 a piece, plus as of the 22nd, no more stamps on packages, without CF ,will be mailed back to you!
Funny I just got a package from Canada, mailed from Canada in three days, 88 no custom form! Don't get it

Goodluck Bud on that, keep us updated
