SCAM ALERT - Reply via Kijiji for Car Sale:
Great reading from you. I believe you must have buyer's interested in the purchase . I am currently in the middle of work duty. Am buying this as a surprise gift for my Son.
To start with, I can only make the payment via paypal because it's very safe and secure for both of us. In case you don't have a paypal account I'll advice you to register for one at www.paypal.com. I won't be available to come for inspection due to my present location because I'll still be on the ship for the next 1 Month. I have a private pick-up agent that will contact you in-order to handle the pick-up at any location of your choice once the payment is completed.
Your asking price is pretty cool with me.. I'll like you to tell me the present condition and also Send me your paypal email address and so that I can make the payment if you wish to proceed. Await your response asap. Thanks !!
