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.

Trying to buy a car from me that I offered online. Is very eager to make advanced payment. Not interested in seeing the car or any details about it.

Thanks for quick reply. It was so lovely to what I can see so far... I'm actually looking to get it before my husband's arrival... I would have loved to come myself but I work in the Army and I'm leading the Basic Combat Training and identical skills for all MOS this month so I don't have much time on the schedule. In this case, I will arrange payment through PayPal/bank transfer any which you prefer as it will be easier to make the transfer using my iPad. I will also arrange for a courier agency to pick up from you after payment and they will schedule pick up date and time with you. Are you the first owner? what's your preferred location for pick up? Looking forward hearing from you, thank you and best regards,
