I've had an enquiry about sending a Tilley lamp to South Korea and a
quick look on interparcel.com suggests that it will cost the thick end
of £70 to get it there, which the proposed buyer seems okay with.

Anyone sent to South Korea before? Horror stories?

I did 2/3 years ago.
Buyer bought it on Thursday and paid instantly by paypal.
Then insisted I ship on Friday, which I thought nothing of it (now days that
will raise alarm).
I got item shipped on Friday morning and informed buyer.
Then within 10 minutes paypal e mail came about card being stolen and they
have reversed payment �250.
Luckily I knew the local post office manager and phoned him to stop the
parcel.
Ended up loosing �60 shipping costs.

And why is that different from what could happen with any other country?

Mind you, it does show how bad EBay are at protecting sellers. Amazon would
not claw back the payment.

Because it is known fact that all the stolen card details are always used in
the far east.

Known only by you I expect.
The guy who recently used my credit card details lived in London.
