Thanks for getting back,i'm cool with the price and condition of it,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 just about to f 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.

Await your reply
THEN
Hi mate,i will let you know when the payment has been made and also contact my courier pickup agent to arrange time and date for the pickup and he will be responsible for signing all the necessary papers on my behalf thanks.

Please help me remove the ad and tell other inquiries that it's sold.
THEN
I was just about to pay when i had this problem with the pick up, my
pick up agent says i will need to pay for the pick up before they can
schedule a pick up time, they charged me $650 for pick up and
delivery, and payments for pick up made through them is made to their
corporate international headquarters which is in China
and the payments is made through western union money transfer, i will
add the $650 to the money i will send through paypal as soon as i have
made the payments, i will email you and let you know and please i will
need you to help me send the money to my pick up agent Hq in china
through western union money transfer, this can be done from any post
office ,there is always western union money transfer section in most
post offices(you can do it online as well at www.westernunion.com)...,
i would have done it myself but as i am at sea and didnt bring my
credit card aboard, i am a little incapacitated.I will appreciate your
help here.
