"I would like to know if you car is still available for sale and what is your firm price. please get back to me on firstname.lastname@example.org for easier contact.
Thanks for getting back,i'm cool with the price likewise the condition as described on the advert,i work with New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kupe project.We do not have access to phone at the moment and that's why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.
Regarding the payment,i will be paying you through PayPal linked up with my westpac bank account,please get back to me with your PayPal details so i can process the payment,you can alternatively send your bsb acct name and number if you have no PayPal acct.I have also contacted my courier who will come for pick up and deliver it to my place in Darwin after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct.
We good to go now Louise,I will transfer the fund into your account soon. Please am trying to sort out with the pick up agent though am having little problem with them now but hope to sort it out soon. i will email you when am done with the payment.
I was just about to make the payment now when i had a little problem with the freighting arrangement, the freighters said i will need to pay for the freighting fees before they can schedule pre-shipping/ pickup date,they charged $1,650 aud for the pick up and delivery, but the problem is they only accept western union money transfer as form of payment which is sent to their HQ in the China. I have tried to see if I could get the money sent to them through western union's website but unfortunately I would be needing to use a credit or debit card which I didn't bring here.
As you are well aware of, I am away on-board and do not have access to western union, most post offices have western union section,will it be OK with you if I add the $1,650 aud the amount I am transferring? and as soon as the money goes through you can help me make the western union transfer of the freighting fees through western union money transfer? You are not obliged to help me, but i will indeed appreciate your help as I am a little incapacitated here.
Okay i understand please can you give them cash when they come over to you to pick up . Please give me your phone number once again so i can verify with Paypal. Get back to me asap
