The Guys E-mail response:
Thanks for the swift response..Am willing to offer you $2900 and total condition of it also a clear picture of it and i will be happy if you remove the AD from the site and consider me as your favorite buyer buy ignoring all other offers .

I won\'t be able to come over with cash or mail a cheque because presently, I\'m working away in Darwin on a research project but i have equally arranged the private courier agent that will come for the pick up and transfer of ownership after payment have been made, so you don\'t have to worry about that.

Kindly send me your PayPal email so i can pay in right away and also include your address in your reply.If you don\'t have a paypal account, you can easily set up one...log on to www.paypal.com.au and sign up. its very easy.I await your reply asap.

I was just about to make the payment when i had this little problem with the picking up,I got an email from my agent...he said he won't come for the pick up unless i pay him the agent commission fee first in order to be able to schedule a suitable pick up date and time and my pick up agent corporate international Headquarters is in the China and all commission payments made for pick up from anywhere in the world is sent to their Headquarters in the China and the only form of payment they accept is western union money transfer which i don't have access to get to the post office and there is no post office on sea.(there is usually a western union section in most post offices).
So now i will include the $950 they charged to pick it up yand take it home (1st class treatment) to the payment i will send through PayPal.After receiving the confirmation email from PayPal notifying you about my payment, i will need you to help me send the $950 to my pick up agent through western union money transfer ASAP at the post office.I would have done this myself but i'm incapacitated because i'm away at Darwin river. I will really appreciate your help here, kindly get back to me as i need to know if i can proceed with the payment.
