  Information
Name:
   Alexander W. Banks
Email Address:
   mralexbanks@gmail.com
Texted us on phone requesting that we communicate to email address.
After doing so, he responded back with lengthy letter wanting immediate purchase and will cover it with paypal charges. Goes into lenghty reason why to do paypal and has private pick-up agent that will contact us in order to handle the pick up at any location of our choice once payment is completed. Than asked questions about maintenance and condition of RV.
I responded back asking if he was a dealer or private buyer and where he is located and what was not working on the RV.
He responded back still very much interested and that he didn\'t want us to surf around for buyers and that we found one and that it was going to be a gift for his dad in Idaho and hoped we understood his eagerness to complete this transaction asap...? He said, he was away at sea at the moment, he works as an Oceanographer and is presently offshore in New Zealand Taranki Basin on kapo project.(Big alert there)
I responded back saying that we are not surfing around and appreciate his eagerness to do this quickly, but we are not in a hurry and don\'t do anything quickly and appreciate what he said he was doing for his dad, but we would rather deal with someone local who can come and see it and said goodluck in your job and finding a gift for your father, but we will pass. We have not heard back as of 10:53 a.m.
