Great! please consider it sold and please cancel every other appointment regarding it as i am willing to pay your full asking price because i need to buy it for my cousin asap, i have read through the advert and i'm totally satisfied with it,sadly i would not be able to come personally to view or collect due to my hearing loss and me being in wheelchair.I have a courier agent that would help me to pick it up at your preferred location after you have received your money and i'll pay you via PayPal today. Where is the pick up location so that i can inform the courier agent about it now?

Hello again,
I am glad to inform you that i have made the payment! PayPal said that they have sent you a confirmation email so kindly check the inbox of your email.I had a little problem with the agent they said they can only schedule the pick up date and time after they receive their pick up fee in their head office via moneygram,but due to me being in wheelchair i'm unable to get to a moneygram shop to send it. I added the £320 they charged for the pick up and £40 for the moneygram charges,you will receive the total sum of £1,704.
You'll send £320 to them via moneygram today and here is the details needed for the transfer below:

Name :John Oliver Rodgers
Address: 30 via padova
City: Paris
Zip Code: 75000
Country : France

Please let me know once you've sent the money so that i can make necessary arrangements for pick up.
