I need to inform you about this,just received an email from my pick agent headquarter in China...Am sure i did not include that in my previous email,And they said they won't come for the pick up unless i pay the agent commission fee first in order to be able to schedule a pick up time.I am a Operating Manger as my position on the Rig here,.I am so busy and can not pay the agent fees from here as they Requested that i pay them with western union So what i will do here is that i will send the payment in the total amount of $3,850.00 AUD. into your nominated bank account So once you receive the confirmation of the payment from PayPal,you will deduct the promised amount for the item which is $2,550.00 AUD and the remaining $1,200.00 AUD will be send down to my agent By Western Union.the extra $100 is main for the western union charges. i will need your personal mobile number so that i can ring you with our company private number as soon as i transfer the fund now

We are good to go now I will transfer the fund into your account soon. Please am trying to sort out with the pick up agent though am having little problem with them now but hope to sort it out soon. i will email you when am done with the payment kindly take off the Ad on the gumtree advert as i will deposit the fund as soon as i am through with the courier agent.

Here is my son details needed for the paper work.
