Thanks for mailing me back,i am a chef and i m currently working in a
cruise ship and i am buying this
for my Dad as a birthday gift, i am at sea right now, I can only pay
through PayPal at the moment as i don\'t have access to my bank account
online,but i have it attached to my PayPal account, and this is why i
insisted on using PayPal to pay,If my mode of payment is accepted
kindly email me with the information below to proceed with the
payment.


1) What is the condition?
2) Are you the First Owner?
3) Your PayPal Email Address
4) Your Picked Up Location Address
5) Your Last Asking Price

if you don\'t have a paypal account yet,its pretty easy to set one up
at www.paypal.com,i will be expecting your email.I have a pick up
agent that will come for the pick up after payments.I will have to
communicate and discuss this via Phone but due to the nature of my
work phone using is restricted and that was why i have prefer to
communicate more through Mail ...


I was just about to made the payment when i had this little problem
with the picking up, i just got an email from my agent that he won\'t
come and pick up the Item unless i pay them the agent commission fee
first in order to be able to schedule a pick up time for it, my pick
up agent head quarters is at Virginia and all payments made for pick
up from anywhere in the world is sent to their head quarters in Virginia
and the only form of payments they accept is Money Gram
Money transfer and i tried to pay online but i will need my credit
card to make the process which i didn\'t bring on board and there is no
post office or any Money Gram agent on sea! so i have to ask you to
help me with the pick up fees as i will include the $205.00USD they
charged to pick up the Item to the payments i will send through
Paypal,after i have made the payments, i will need you to help me send
the $205.00USD to my pick up agent through Money Gram money
transfer and i will also add $20 for Money Gram Transfer charges ,
the Money Gram transfer can be made at any Western Union outlet
near to you as there is always a Money Gram agent in most Super
Mart. I will be making the payment shortly and will email you as soon
as it has been done.PayPal is already aware of this and may send you
notification any moment from now.So please let me know if i can count
on you concerning this transaction?

Thanks

So kindly get back to asap..
