Default Need some insight from ebay afficionados, scam?

long story short, bought a cooling fan motor for our XJ from a very positive seller. paid with paypal right away, somehow according to the tracking number they gave it was shipped to Hawaii (especially strange since the listing says in several places that they dont ship there...)

I asked what the deal was and got this response

""Hello, The reason for this email is to inform you that due to an unfortunate manufacture re-call; we are forced to intercept the package and return the item back into our warehouse for the manufacture to process investigations. We are very sorry for the inconvenience, please be advice that the manufacture is sending us a new shipment which arrives to our warehouse August 27th. Item will be shipping out unless you think itís too much of an inconvenience we can cancel the order and process a refund. If you have any further questions feel free to contact our customer service. Thank you. ""

That response makes zero sense to me, not sure what I am supposed to do?

call customer service and ask why it was sent to Hawaii, get address straightened out for shipment today, or ask for refund.

Buy a plane ticket to Hawaii and pick it up yourself. Then lay yourself on the beach for a couple days.

I think they fucked up and they are passing the blame.
