I sent an email stating my bottom dollar and received an email back (which did not include my email I sent to him) as such:
\"I got your response. Well, I have read through your advert and from what I have seen, it is priced favorably compared to others so I want you to consider it sold to me because I am ready to offer you the demanded price. I am Tech Sft Mark Jones (Military) currently on duty serving the country. Presently I am out of town on duty in a remote area until December 20. We have a bad and fluctuating network here otherwise I would have called you and seal the deal on phone. At the moment, email and text messages works best for me.
Nevertheless, I am ready to seal the deal right away and pay you via PayPal accouint that is attached to my bank account as it is the only secure form of payment that I have access to right now. So, kindly get back to me with your FULL NAME AND PAYPAL EMAIL ADDRESS so that I can initiate the payment immediately. If you don\'t have a paypal account, it is absolutely free to set one up, kinly visit www.paypal.com. A shipper will be hired that willcome for thepick up upon the completion of the payment aspect of the transaction. Let me have the requested details to proceed withthe payment if we have a deal.
DON\'T BE FOOLED
