I received two emails from Lisa Lamb wanting to buy my father\'s car for her father for his birthday. The first one was short and wanted to know if it was still available.

The second wss as follows:

\"Thank you for getting back to me,can you assure me that i will not be disappointed if i buy this Vehicle as a Birthday gift for my Dad? as I\'m ready to pay your asking price but not cash in person because I\'m an Oceanographer and i am presently on a contract which will end in couple of months,the contract is strictly no call due to the lack of reception on the sea area,but I\'m able to access my mail through my laptop and my only quickest payment option is PayPal,its safe fast and secure and i will be responsible for the pay pal transaction charges so you can get your expected amount.
If you don\'t have an account with paypal,its pretty easy to open one,Just log on to www.paypal.comand sign up.I hope we can make the purchase as fast as possible? as my Dad\'s birthday is fast approaching,am sure he will love this vehicle,his a mechanic and a handy man,so if there is anything that need to be fixed in it just let me know he will handle it.
I have a mover that will come for the pick up once payment clears in your account and he will handle the title for me.I look forward to hear from you with the information below.
