Henry strikes again. I have a trailer for sale for $5000 on Gumtree. The conversation went like this: HENRY - "Is this ad still available?" ME - "Yes it is." HENRY - "Ok just wanted to make sure nothing is been left out. I will be purchasing this for $5200. Payment will be sent using PayPal and i will handle the PayPal surcharge as well. I will arrange with someone to have this picked up for your location once i have paid as i am out of town at the moment.In the meantime, can you send me more pictures (if available)? Regards Henry" ME - "Hi Henry, As I don't have a pay pal account I would prefer the payment to be in the form of cash, cheque, or money order. Unfortunately I don't have any more photos. Are you based in Brisbane?" HENRY - "I insisted on paypal because i don't have access to my bank account online as i don't have internet banking and i can't go to the bank due to the nature of my job, but i can pay from my paypal account, as i have my bank a/c attached to it, i will need you to give me your paypal email address so i can make the payments asap for the merchandise and pls if you don't have paypal account yet, it is very easy to set up, go to www.paypal.com.au and get it set up , after you have set it up i will only need the e-mail address you use for registration with paypal so as to put the money through. Henry"
So Henry doesn't have internet banking but has a PayPal account? I don't think so. I haven't replied to Henry.
