After sending an email advising the advertised price of the item received the following reply "Greetings, I am interested and I agree to buy at your price. How I wish i could come for viewing and inspection as am currently overseas at the moment and i want it picked up before i get back, although I will be back in some couple of weeks but i will be very glad if you have more pictures. Due to my inability to make a bank deposit, I would be paying via PayPal which is safer for me. Kindly send me a paypal payment invoice or create an account at www.paypal.com if you dont have one. I will make a concrete pick up arrangement with my transport agent who will be coming over for pick up once you receive full payment into your PayPal account. Have a nice day. Few more photos will be appreciated as well."
