recieved a text message concerning a bus i am selling on ebay. I contacted mike dustin
using the email provided and recieved this in message


Thanks a lot for the email. I am away at sea at the moment, on the west aquarius submersible to be precise, we do not have access to phone at the moment, its 15days off and 15days on, which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility, i\'m glad you accepted my offer. I am buying this for my dad in Canada, i\'m a Canadian. I decided not to choose the local market of Canada and to choose the U.S.A eBay market as its a far larger one than the local Canada one and gives me more freedom of choice, the shipping cost and all will be worth it at the end of the day, I want to purchase it for my dad he will love this as a surprise so much, he is so much of an enthusiast! does it have any history I should be aware of? Are you the first owner? I am already in talks with freighters that will handle the pickup and delivery to my dad. I will really appreciate if you can email more info and pics. As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit, using paypal instant bank wire transfer service, I will need your bank details. If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up a paypal account proper at www.paypal.com and I will make the payment through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email address. Do let me know how you want to go.

I want it to be the perfect graduation gift for him and am making it a surprise package ,i want to be sure if it is still in good condition , preferably if i can get more close up picture (engine and interior inclusive), i will not be able to come for inspection now all i really need from you is the exact details of the car.I am already in talks with freighters that will handle the pickup and delivery .
