Do not ship until you have received payment.  The only way for the unpaid auction to be settled in his favor is for him to pay for it.  Do not ship until you have reviewed payment.  If you ship with a tracking number all he can do is open a snad case and at that point all you have to do is tell him to return it and once you have it you will refund.  Don't let the guy intimidate you, he hasn't a leg to stand on at this point.  He got the unpaid auction because he did not pay, too bad for him.  He did it to himself.  You are following the correct procedure here.  He can get you phone number from eBay so that mystery is solved, doesn't need your permission, it is in the agreement you signed with eBay.  Stop worrying.  Be sure to add him to your list of blocked buyers so he can no longer threaten you.

 NOW I HAVE TO SEND SHIPMENT

 

NO.

 

You do not ship until AFTER you have been paid!

 

Please STOP SHOUTING AT US, and try to explain your problem a bit more fully.

What is the Item Number?

Did the buyer pay?

Did you COMPLETE the nonpayment process?

Don't ship unless you have received payment.

They probably pulled your contact info through ebay and then did a google search for your private phone number.

Nothing is really private nowadays.

 

If you have received payment, and it has cleared, ship the item with tracking info. That way you can prove that they received it.

Don't send him the item which he is on unpaid case. File a report about this.

He could have gotten it from ebay by hitting contact information. If he did, you got his. Check your spam folder.
