Henry Edward, again.
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Henry Edward
Email Address:
   henrydwrd2@gmail.com
I\'d found out about Henry Edward on this site, when I looked him up after a suspicious conversation about my listing.

Henry:
Do you still have the listing for sale?Let me know the present
condition of it and why you are selling it.

Me:

Yes, I still have bed .

The bed is in excellent condition the photo\'s I posted in the ad were only taken three weeks ago. The only reason for selling is that I have moved into a granny flat and the bed is way to big for it.

I will be sad to see the bed go as it was made for me over 15 years ago and still looks the same. The only thing I have done in that time
is renewed the slats. You are more than welcome to view the bed.

Henry:
Ok just wanted to make sure nothing is been left out.
I will be purchasing this for $2700. 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)?

Me:
No problems, I will take more photo\'s when I get home from work and forward them to you.

Henry:
Hello ,

Thanks for your response. So i will be paying directly into your
PayPal account without any delay, and i hope you have a paypal
account. If you have one already, just send me the address to send it
to, which is the email address you use for it or you can send me a
paypal money request, so once i receive the details i will go ahead
with the payment through PayPal and then i will contact my shipping
company after you get the payment.

I will need your home address for the merchandise to be Picked Up by
the Shipping Company..

Me:
Email address for Paypal is -----------

Henry:
Thanks for the mail, as i want you to know that the funds will be
transferred for the item shortly via PayPal...so i will urge you to
get the item off the site as requested.....so kindly get back to me
asap...

Me:
Item will be removed once payment is received.

After this there was no reply, and then I found this site and sent him a link to a page all about him.

Me:
Hi,

I thought something seemed off with this offer.
