> They are in great condition, still pretty much new just been sitting in the garage for a couple years, still start and run great as we go and start them regularly to insure that they continue to run great. one needs new tires which cost about $20 each in stores. And the minimum I can accept for them both would be $800.00. And they have to be picked up, paid in cash when picked up.

The emails have continued I made a paypal account but did not use the link he provided, when he says he has sent the money I told him there\'s nothing there no email confirmation ect he hasn\'t responded back as of yet but I will post more if he does.... Here are te rest of the emails
Ok. i will await your PayPal email account so we can make arrangement on the payment.
Oh i see you are new about all this. You don\'t have to wait for any few days. I am using a merchant account with PayPal,so i can send as much as i like and your account will be automatically confirmed, verified and credited immediately. as soon as you send me your PayPal email i will make the payment and you will be notify in your email that the payment have been made.Very easy.
Await your response
Good ,I will now email my private courier regarding the pickup and get back to proceed with the payment.
K this is where things really get me.... He sends this email to me after I\'ve opened an account and sent the email to send a payment...
Hi, The response I have just received from my private courier was that they won\'t be able to come for the pick up unless a commission fee of $550 is paid first in order for them to be able to schedule a date and time for the pickup to be made. My private courier agent headquarters is in the CHINA and all commission payments made for pickup from anywhere in the world is sent to their head quarters in the China and the only form of payments they accept is Western Union Money Transfer.
I will add the said $550 to the money I will send through PayPal Account to your bank account. As soon as i have made the payment, I will email you to inform you, please I will need you your help to send the money to my pick up agent Hq in China through western union money transfer. This can be done from any western union post office, as there is always western union money transfer section in most post office.
I would have done it myself but there is no post office on the ship and i tried to pay online (www.westernunion.com) but i will need a credit card which i didn\'t bring aboard the ship. So i have to ask you to help me with the pick up fees on trust, I\'m a little incapacitated....I will be making the full payment as soon as possible. I will appreciate your help here....
Thanks for been nice and considerate about this.
So I waited n kept checking everything this is all done on my phone so it\'s never logged out of anything and phone is never off so I don\'t see how this person is gonna be able to really do anything...
Pls confirm you get a Payment confirmation from PayPAl about the full payment i have made into your account
I said k I\'ll confirm it as soon as it goes though
He said. Alright, and please make sure you check your email for the email confirmation
So I asked how long does this take normally his response:
PayPal is an instant Payment service, but to to be sure did you get any email from PayPal ? pls check your email INBOX OR JUNK AND SPAM EMAILS JUST TO BE SURE
I HAVE MADE THE FULL PAYMENT AND IT AS BEEN DEDUCTED FROM MY ACCOUNT, TO BE SURE OF THIS I CAN FORWARD YOU THE COPY OF THE PAYMENT I GOT FORM PAYPAL WHICH I THINK WILL BE SAME AS YOUR
He hasn\'t said anything after this one.... Yet...
