I\'ve seen lately, I\'ll have it for the listed price, please kindly send me your
paypal payment email and name to set up purchase,
i will arrange for pick up by my freight agent after the cleared payment via paypal.
I have just completed the payment and i expected paypal to have
notified you to this effect.check your mail folders(inbox,spam and junk
mail) i sent $16,600 in all.i added $1,600 but $1,500 will be sent to my
pickup agent headquarters in UK through western union at post office,the extra $100
is to cover the western union fee.
PayPal will not release the fund until you email them the
western union details for verification,and also to enable my pick up agent
to come for pick up and inspection.Here is the agent\'s details where the money
will be sent.
