Urulókë: for most scenarios the risk (from a monetary point of view) rests pretty solely with the buyer; which in almost all cases (except those scenarios where the buyer gets someone else to purchase on their behalf) will be the person seeking this arrangement in the first place; in order to get round a seller not shipping directly to them, etc.

Yes, there might be complications around something being genuinely lost --but this is dependent on whether the seller/buyer bother with insurance in the first place. I don't think there's a great deal of risk involved for the party forwarding something on i.e. this shouldn't worry anyone (--not that it seems to have anyway, judging by the responses.) Either way, requesting a package go to an address which is not your own, is no different (in principle) from getting something posted to a business/works address. It seems to work fine as an arrangement when I've needed it or others have asked me.

At the end of the day I wouldn't personally request this favour from anyone I didn't "know" --& this "know" I only developed by participation in this forum & from private contact (email).
