Hello,
I want to inform you that my assistant have sent out the payment to your contact address you gave me.... The payment will covered the packaging,logistic (shipping) and insurance .. You will deduct your item fee and send the rest balance to the movers via Western Union and they will proceed with the pick up.However i want to believe i won\'t have any problem with this and if i can trust you with my Money.

Please once you received the payment, i will like you to deduct your money for the item and send the remaining via western union or money gram to the manager\'s of the moving company that will come and pick-up the item at your place.I will provide the info you need to complete the western union transfer once you receive payment. Thanks once again for your understanding.
Best Regards.

Hi, Thanks for the response.I am willing to pay your asking price.I will pay you with a money order or cashier's check, as its the only way i can pay you at the moment due to the fact that i am away for an assignment.I will make arrangement for the pick-up after payment have been received by you. I don't mind adding an extra $40 just for you to keep it in my favor.Reply with your full name and address where payment should be sent,and a phone number where i can reach you.Please take the posting off craigslist today and consider it sold to me.
Expecting to hear from you soon. Regards. T J.
