  Information
Name:
   Jacobs Leah
Email Address:
   jacobsleah87@outlook.com
Received response to listing on Gumtree by SMS with email address to make contact (jacobsleah87@outlook.com). After making contact about which item he was interested in, he obviously didn\'t know what I had listed but was just after Paypal account details. After some back and forth he sent the following:-
\"Thanks for your response, am satisfied with the price, I am willing to buy it
for my Wife as a Gift. But due to the nature of my job and location, phone
calls making and visiting of website are restricted but i squeezed out time to
check this advert and send you an email regarding it and i will like to know
the present condition and the last price. I will not be able to come for
inspection because am a very busy type, i work long hours everyday,i have gone
through your advertisement and i am satisfied with it.
As for the payment,i will be paying you via the fastest and secure way to
pay online(PayPal).and as for the pick up i have a private courier agent that
will come for the picking up after the payment have been made .

You can now send me your PayPal email so i can pay in right
away and also include your address.

looking forward to hear you back....\"
