TexLawyer :

OK. I've been able to find out a few thing about this address, and, unfortunately, it appears to be a scam.

TexLawyer :

I've looked in several scam reporting databases, and this address has been used for several scams in the past.

Customer:

I thought so ,Thank you

TexLawyer :

It is likely that this address is a mail forwarding service. Essentially, a person can have an address which does nothing more than collect mail and then forward it on to somewhere else, likely overseas.
