Thanks for your mail... Due to nature of my job inspection will not be possible for me ,cus am very busy, as i work for long hours almost everyday, i have gone through your advertisement and i am satisfied with the condition and price of it.
As for the payment.. i will be paying you via one of the fastest and secure way to pay online (PayPal).
