Thanks for getting back to me as regards my inquiry about the listed item is for sale. I would have loved to call you directly but due to the nature of my work we do not have access to phone at the moment,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. i will like to know if you are the direct seller and if you are the first owner.

I will be very grateful if u can give me a first priority and take the ad down. i will add a fee of $100 for taking the ad down.please, get back to me with more pic and the last price offer..I am already in talks with freighters that will handle the pickup and delivery .I will really appreciate if u can email more info

Due to the nature of my work i am a very busy man working all day,i don't have access to my bank account online as am not with my credit card details here but i have my ANZ bank account link up with my PayPal account so I will be paying you through PayPal to your nominated bank account or better still is if u have a PayPal account ,please get back to me with ur BSB and account details or PayPal account so i can proceed with the payment and contact the courier agent who will come to pick it up and deliver it in NT
