"Good to hear back from you. I'm okay with the price and the condition. Presently, i am out of town for my vacation and i won't be able to come for the inspection due to my location. Moreover, I would have loved to call but am out of service for days now which restricts calls.I have a pick up agent who will be coming for the pick up after the transaction has been completed. I will be paying you through PayPal as it is the only Medium at which i can send Payment at the Moment. I would appreciate if you email me with more pictures (if available) too since i won't be be able to see this in person. And if you don't have a PayPal account, It's pretty easy to set up a PayPal account at www.paypal.com. it's just a few minutes away from signing up. it's safe and secure for both Parties and i have been using PayPal to buy and sell for years now without problems. Pls get back to me with your PayPal email so i can proceed with the payment and contact the Pick up Agent who will come for the Pick up of the item. I will need these following details so i can proceed with the payment right away
1:Your PayPal e-Mail Address 2: Home Address
As soon as you get back to me with your PayPal email, I'll proceed with full Payment. I look forward to reading from you soon.
Regards
