Warning: Scammer (David Henry) selling Porsche Parts out of Arizona

Ok. Here is the reason why I was inquiring...the other shoe dropped today. WARNING: Do not buy from this d _ _ _ _ _ bag! Through ebay, the "bag" and I negotiated a Buy it Now price (last week). I paid up and over what I was expecting to and he was happy to accept. He then came back to me and asked that I insure the shipment - I complied and sent a second payment to cover the insurance. I have been waiting for the relay board and assorted items in the listing. LINK

On Monday (5th), I receive an email from the "bag"...operate with this ******* at your own risk!

I was "giving him a chance to do the right thing...he refunded my payments this afternoon. I am therefore "outing" him due to unacceptable behavior!!!

Tony

"Hi Tony, I've decided the buy-it-now purchase of the relay board does not work for me.

I have two option to offer you:

The first is to both agree to cancel the order and I will relist the board as an auction at $585. It will be open to everyone and see what it is actually worth.

The second is for me to just cancel the order which I can do. I've had the board for a number of years and I will set it aside for a coupe more years and then relist it again.

Either way I will refund all the monies I have received from you.

Think about it a let me know which way I should go.

Thanks,
David"

What are you really asking? Are you looking to see if this guy is legit and not a scammer-Why not message him on Ebay?

I have no idea who he is and I have never done business with him, but my thought process was to come out and be direct to you as to what you are asking for...that's all

Gordon has a point. If he were a friend of mine, I would be wondering why you want to talk to him before I told you how to find him. It's just human nature.

Well David Henry has been outed. I personally just wouldn't be putting people's address on a Internet forum. But that's just me.

What I haven't shared with everyone here but David knows is, I passed on a $385 board to purchase his because of the added components. ******* screwed me in more ways than one with this move! To say I am a little agitated is an understatement...

Tony

PS: Thank you Matt!

ive ruffled plenty of feathers here over the years typing stupid shat w/o the proper use of emojis to provide the tone of my post and stuff was taken the wrong way. mix in a rolled eye or slamming a beer character to really let us know how you feel.

He is a scam artist because he realized he under valued something? Yes, that sucks and I would be mad as well- I would list him as a bad seller. Not a scam artist.

KC: First, he didn't undervalue anything...it appears he "thinks" he did. I passed on a similar item for $200 less (thus my point)...he wasted my time, misled me to his intentions, has no apparent morals and did this to a member of the Porsche community. He is a scammer...sorry.

BTW: He doesn't qualify as a bad seller...he didn't end up selling!

alright tony, great use of the rolling eyed emoji!


we'd all be better off if this exercise was closed. can I get four more votes to make five?


what the lux is the topic that get's a thread removed like warm milk from the shelf at the 711 every time? let it go tony. it's been burned into the internet now, any further ranting really just erodes your credibility. consider that.
