Please send me your address, and shipping preference (UPS, etc). I will
This is *not* how it's done today. It appears to be a "quirk" of this particular seller.
First, he is technically right. In the quote above, he does not actually come out and say you are the actual purchaser. However, when he says "send me your preferred method of shipping and mail your check to me at such and so address", that is a VERY STRONG IMPLICATION that you are indeed the actual purchaser. A large majority of the population, upon hearing "send your check to this address" would believe it's a done deal.
As to sending a reply to *many* people saying "send your check, etc"... well, this boarders on the naive, ignorant or foolish. It's poor business to imply to one person that you have a deal (when you don't), much less doing that to multiple people.
What probably happened is that a better deal came along from someone else (higher price, buying both pieces instead of one, pick up rather than having to ship, whatever). No matter the reason, that is at best (in my opinion), unethical.
Not a perfect world...
