"just have his associates come by and pick them up, and ship them back themselves".
That sounds more like the shipping charges scam.
They order the stuff with a stolen credit card. They tell you that they have their own special shipping company. Suddenly when it is time to have the goods picked up, they say that their shipping company wont accept a credit card for the shipment and can you do another charge on the credit card and Western Union the money to the shipping company for them.
They never come to get the goods and the CC charges are reversed. You lose the money you Western Union'd to their fantastic shipping company.
