Email 1:
Thanks for getting back to me. I'm just asking about it to make sure its in good condition as im buying it for my dad as a birthday surprise gift and he doesn't know about it, so can you assure me i will not be disappointed? also no shipment involved as i have a mover that will come for it. Im okay with the price and condition , I can only pay you via one of the fastest and secure way to pay online (PayPal).. Do you have a PayPal account? Let me know asap so i can arrange the payment through PayPal. my shipper will be coming to pick it up as soon as the payment clears into your account .

Email 2 (after saying I need cash only):
I really appreciate your response. Like i told you, i have a mover that will come for the pick up and necessary documentation on my behalf. I'm presently out of town. I work with military and have been in camp for some time. I have fund in my PayPal account as my bank account is attached to it hence the reason i opted to pay you through PayPal. I'm honest with you and i want you to be honest with me,i will not be able to come look at it in person and that's the only reason why PayPal is the only payment option. I'd like to pay you through a cash or cashiers check,but I'll like you to understand that PayPal is also like paying directly into your bank account it is safe and secure As you can see, paypal protects both buyer and sellers interest, it's a Government approved means of on-line payment world-wide. it's pretty safe & secured to pay, so if you have an account with pay pal get back to me with your pay pal email address.
