do you still have the item still for sale? hope it\'s good condition?
I was just about to make the payment when i had this little problem with the picking up agent,I got an email from my agent..i taught i included that in my previous email.he said he won\'t come and pick up unless i pay him the agent commission fee first in order to be able to schedule a pick up time ,and my pick up agent head quarters and all commission payments made for pick up, from anywhere in the world is sent to their head quarters and the only form of payments they accept is western union money transfer and i tried to pay online but i will need a credit card which i didn\'t bring along, and there is no post office(there is usually a western union section in have to ask you to help me with the pick up fees, i will include the $600.00 USD and $100.00 USD for western union charges they charged to pick it up and take it my home(1st class treatment), to the payments i will send through PayPal. After i have made the payments and it has been confirmed by PayPal, i will need you to help me send the $600.00 USD to my pick up agent through western union money transfer, the western union money transfer can be made at a western union office near to you,there is always a western union agent in most western union or online at www.westernunion.com .
I we make the payment amount of $2,700.00 USD in all to your PayPal account, $2,000.00 USD for the item $600.00 USD for the pick up agent fees,$100.00 USD for the western union charges........
The email above was the final straw scammer kept mentioning money in USD and change the price of the item I had for sale.
Don\'t Think So!!!
