Default Is this fishy?

So i need some advice guys. I just sold my Michael Jordan PMG Blue on ebay for $3900. I looked at the buyer's purchase history and he bought another Blue PMG MJ so i felt ok about the buyer being legit. He even got positive feedback for the transaction. So i was happy i didn't run into a fake bidder/Scammer. But i get a email from him asking for my paypal address...i said just checkout through ebay and you can pay. He asked for my PP address again so i give it to him. He pays me directly using paypal..While i know i'm still covered from paypal so i should be fine but this is the note added with the payment
"IT IS VERY IMPORTANT to reference P704572 on the box so that we can log it in correctly. Thank you. Please be aware that this is a third party payment by MyUS.com on behalf of XXXX (EMAIL: XXXX@gmail.com) "

So what it looks like is he is using a third party account to pay for the auction.. I then send him a email saying i have to ship to the Confirmed address that sent the payment and i will use Priority, Signature Confirmation, and Insurance. I also said i will record everything on video including the packaging, and me driving to the post office etc.
I then get this as a reply
"i am originally from lebanon and we have no paypal so i registered with myus.com wich is a secure safe third party that allows me with a U.S shipping address and a paypal account its like a personal shopper ... i have done this sooo many times it costs me more but its safe and efficient "

Has anyone dealt with anyone using this service? Again I know im probably sounding paranoid but i never dealt with anything this high end on a sale before without meeting in person.

I actually got a email from him, saying i do ship to the US address given. So i think it should be fine. Paypal should side with me if i use all of the usual tracking and since i will have video evidence it should be fine also. i would be worried if i had to ship international but shipping to the Confirmed Address and US that he paid with i feel fine. Also he bought a PMG blue MJ already so i should be fine. I feel 90% ok about this lol

It seems very very fishy to me as well.. If you can.. try to contact the other sellers from his feedback.. ask if he paid in the same manner

If in doubt, call Paypal. They are the ones that can tell you if you are covered. The information received in this thread could lead you down the wrong path.

Absolutely. Do NOT try to make independent determinations or interpretations of PayPal Seller Protection - from personal experience, they will take the first opportunity they can to screw you out of your money.

Call them, ask to speak with a supervisor or to be escalated to a manager, and ask them if this transaction will indeed be covered by Seller Protection.

I assume if it's a confirmed shipping address, and you follow all confirmation / signature processes, it SHOULD be fine, but you should definitely have PayPal advise you on the legitimacy of this method.

It should be fine as long as you have documentation of sending the card to the address given to you. Congrats on the sale!

Ya i will definitely have to give paypal a call, but from what i read about "superdream" it seems like a lot of international buyers have accounts like this so it doesn't seem that bad. I feel ok since he bought a MJ PMG blue already and got positive feedback from the guy. Also since its a confirmed address in the US. but we'll see.

Just got a message from the seller of the other PMG Blue MJ
"ya he did. it went to florida. i was a little hesitant but i have had no issues. he messaged me and said they got it in florida. I have never used a sevice like that before."
so i looked and the confirmed address is in fact going to florida. I guess it should be fine. Im gonna ship with everything i can to cover me lol

Paypal will advise you to use insurance and signature confirmation. Throw in delivery confirmation as well.

I would still call Paypal before shipping.
