GetHuman3926426's customer service issue with Mercari from November 2019

Help with my Mercari issue
The issue in GetHuman3926426's own words
I accepted an offer from a buyer on Mercari. The buyer then messaged me to send her purchase to a different name and address. I contacted Mercari and I cannot change the label after purchase. I told the customer I could not change the address per Mercari's policy and asked if she still wanted the item. She says ok, but then messages me that other sellers have done it in the past. I contact Mercari again. They said she can cancel the order, update her address and then repurchase. The customer does not want to do this. She is insistent that I send to the unvalidated address. I message Mercari again because my window to ship is closing. The buyer violated Mercari's policy when she messaged me private information (the alternate name and address.) I am in an awkward situation and have found Mercari's customer service lacking. Do I just cancel this transaction and take the penalty for it - just to end the frustration!? I have a perfect rating with Mercari, the buyer has a perfect rating with Mercari. I don't feel good about this transaction and feel I will get negative feedback if I send to the validated address on the label that Mercari has provided me - which the buyer paid for. How would you resolve this situation?

How GetHuman3926426 fixed the problem
The order was eventually cancelled by Mercari but it took * inquiries over * days. Should have been cancelled on the *st inquiry in which the buyer violated Mercari's marketplace guidelines.
