If you have one already, just send me the address to send it to, which is the email address you use for it or you can send me a paypal money request, so once i receive the details i will go ahead with the payment through PayPal and then I will contact my shipping company after you get the payment. I will need your home address for it to be Picked Up by the Shipping Agent"

If I get the money in to my account can they recall it?

Sounds a bit odd, most of these 'overseas buyers' are nothing but scams, not sure what they can do with your PayPal email, name, and address though? I would ask to speak to them directly over the phone, speak to the 'shipping agent' directly before handing over any details....
