Hello,> > Do you still have your goods available for sale and how much is the last price...? Get back to me with the presence condition of the goods... I will be waiting to read from you as soon as possible ok...

Hello ,
Thank you for the mail, i am buying this for my Dad ,i am a petroleum engineer currently on a rig offshore i really want this to be a surprise gift for my Dad so i wont let him know anything about this until it gets delivered to him , i am sure he will be more than happy with it.I can only pay with PayPal here, i will need you to give me your PayPal email address so i can make the payments asap and please if you don\'t have PayPal account yet, it is very easy to set up, go to www.paypal.com and get it set up , after you have set it up i will only need the e-mail address you use for registration with PayPal so as to put the money through.....

Pick up agent will come for the pick up as soon as i have made the payment,as a petroleum engineer I work mainly offshore, our phone is down on the rig right now due to bad weather, we can only communicate with our base for now. But if the deal is sealed, then i can look for a means to call you.


Hello,

Thank you for your mail and i am happy to read from you again but i want you to understand me very well, As i told you earlier that I am on offshore at the moment that is why its very hard for me to contact you because all our phone is dead . The money is not the problem but where i am, i would have love to send you the money through bank or cash but there is nothing i can do from here to get money from my bank account...

Secondly i want you to understand whats called Pick up Agent,they don\'t deal with money carrying at all,there work is to travel to any part of the country to pick up items, i would have love it can be but that is there work and that its how they work. i want you to understand all the terms and why its hard for me to send you the money through bank transfer but only Paypal from the Ship. i will be looking forward to hear from you as soon as possible.

Hello,
There is nothing i can do than to pay the paypal commission fees... Or is there any help you can make for me and not if kindly add up the paypal commission fees and let me know how much together so i can make the payment as soon as i read back from you... Also please drop yourself phone number so the pick up agent can call you as soon as he is ready to come for it ok..
