He also gave me an address for delivery, so I've forwarded that to PayPal.

I was advertising a flash card on donedeal.ie and got quite a quick response from this Declan Brouder and quite frankly the alarm bells starting ringing with the email contact. He wanted to pay extra via paypal for 'shipping and handling' and wanted me to post it to Nigeria. I google mapped the address he gave me, it seemed like a legit address. But then I got a Paypal "You have a payment pending" email that just looked wrong (the indents). Anyhow, forwarded it to paypals spoof email address and they confirmed it. See below -
You Have a Payment Pending!
