Copy of email reply from James
Am sure there must have been lot of people trying to buy this from you
so i think offering you $16,650 wont be a bad idea.. I would have loved
to come for the inspection but i work in the army in which i have to
conduct Basic Combat Training and identical skills for all MOSs
(Military Occupational Specialties) this month so i’v got no spare time.
I have a pick up agent that will be picking it up after when you have
received the total payment from me so there is nothing to worry about
concerning picking it up, they will also handle all necessary paper work
when they meet with you. Get back to me with your paypal email or bank
details so i can transfer the money as soon as i can then we can proceed
with the transaction..

regards,

James.
