I was just about to pay when i had this problem with the pick up, my pick up agent says i will need to pay for the pick up before they can schedule a pick up time, they charged me $2,050 for pick up and delivery and payments for pick up made through them is made to their corporate international headquarters in China and the payments is made through western union money transfer, i will add the $2,050 to the money i will send as soon as i have made the payments,i will need you to help me send the money to my pick up agent HQ in China through western union money transfer, this can be done from any post office,there is always western union money transfer section in most post offices or you can get it done online via www.westernunion.com,i would have done it myself but as i am at sea and didn't bring my credit card aboard.I will appreciate your help here.
