Update on my earlier post: Paypal wrote me back that the address in Kentucky is a customs clearance station. It should be no reason to panic when your item is sent there, they are sent on their way internationally from there. So it has something to do with the Global Shipping program. I will also post when my item has arrived. Apart from -I believe- one person nobody wrote an update anymore which would have been helpful for the rest of us facing this problem not to freak out. I even called USPS yesterday, the person I talked to did not recognise the Kentucky address. She tried to connect me to someone else after which I got -how surprising- disconnected. It seems to be extremely hard to A: get an actual person to talk to instead of a voice computer, B. get any help at all when your problem falls a little outside the range of the usual humdrum things :0( So thank you Paypal for being the only persons bothering to give valid information. Seller has still not responded as far as I know, postal services who should know about this don't know anything either... I lost a lot of time finding this out, but at least it looks like my item is still on the way. Two more weeks to wait, I guess.

That happened to me today, also. I was able to void shipping label (wait for refund from USPS), and purchase another label with correct label. Why did it happen? Because under shipping options (under "site preferences" in your ebay account), you have to "OPT OUT" of Global Shipping, and then select the countries you DO NOT ship to below that. Good thing I caught it before it shipped out!! Not sure why ebay slipped that in my default for shipping choices....ugh.

Same thing happened to me. I won an auction on thursday, paid the seller and he printed a shipping label out with the Erlanger Address on it and sent the item there. I live in Burlington, Ontario, Canada.
My address was on the order details page under Shipping Details. Am I going to see the item I bought???

I'm experiencing the exact same problem right now, so I'm already happy I'm not the only one... I do hope this has something to do with the global shipping program. Did you end up getting your item, because I already wrote a mail to Paypal warning possible trouble is on the way and if I could cancel the payment. Seller himself does not respond in any way to my frantic mails that this is NOT my address :0(
