Hi
The Payment has been made, I receive another message from Paypal now after they sent me payment confirmation. i found the message in my spam box,you can also check your Paypal email spam and inbox very well for Paypal messages in case you are missing any one.In the last message i got from them,they told me that the total fund has been held at their desk and you need to send the shipping fee first to the shipping agent name and address and email them proof of money sent for verification before they can release the total fund to your account,you will have to try and do as PayPal instructed you to do so we can complete this transaction as soon as possible,i think the reason why Paypal deducted the total fund from my account and placed a temporary hold on it and tell you to send the shipping fee up front before the release of the total fund to your account is because l choose a secure trading when i was making the payment,so we can both be secured. I will advice you to try your bast as fast as possible to send the shipping fee to the agent name and address and email Paypal the money sent details so the total fund can be released to your account and we can fix date and time for the pick up. This is the agent name and address,
Name: Terry Dunn
Address:778 Southline Dr, Lebanon, Ohio, 45036, USA
let me know when you complete your part on this transaction.
Liz
