advise on the least amount you will like to give it away as i am buying this for Dad and due to the nature of my job and location...i will not be able to come for inspection,am a very busy type as i work long hours everyday,i have gone through your advertisement and i am satisfied with it.
As for the payment..i can only pay via the fastest and secure way to pay online(PayPal) here.
have a private courier agent that will come for the pick up after the payment have been made ...so no shipping included and With the issue of my details,transferring the name of ownership and signing of all paperwork will be done by the courier services company agent so you don\'t have to worry about that.

You can now send me your PayPal email so i can pay in right away and also include your address in your reply.If you don\'t have a paypal account, you can easily set up one...log on to www.paypal.comand sign up its very easy... i would have loved to talk to you on phone but i work mainly offshore, our phone is down on the rig right now due to bad weather, that was why i sent you a text, i even wonder how my message deliver to your phone but for now we can only communicate through the same mailing channel.await your reply
Above Is the reply email i recived for my ad. Straight away you know it\'s a scam because they live off shore, they can\'t contact you, they ask for you to pay the fastest secure way, and ask for your address. I\'ve had this through another online selling service aswell. It makes me angry. Instead of being precise on the sale they ramble on about unessesary info. To try and confuse you.
