Then I emailed him. See exchange below. Something didn't "feel" right so I Googled first his name, then his phone number. No hits on the name - found this site via the phone number. I hope this helps save someone else problems. BTW, we are going to send him an email telling him to send his agent to pick up the table and he can PayPal us when the agent gets "here". And the address will be to the local police precinct.
My Father is from Kansas and i have a pick up agent that will come for
the shipping of the item.I want to buy this for my dad as a birthday
gift and i want to make it as a surprise for him cos i don't want him
to be dissapointed .So consider your item sold to me and get back to
me with your PayPal email address or an invoice from PayPal so that i
can transfer the funds immediately.
Waiting for your reply soon.
