Am glad it\'s available. I\'m going on a vacation but I will instruct my assistant to prepare and mail your payment which I\'m sure you will get in about 4 - 6 business days. I\'ll add $20 extra for the delay. I\'ll pay by M O or cashier check so send me your info (i.e full name, mailing address and your phone number) so payment can be mailed out immediately. I will also make arrangement for pick-up which will be after you must have received and cashed the payment. Awaiting your info.

my response back,
Hi Ferdnand,

Thank you for your response. I’m happy that you’re interested in the TV as it is lovely. I also thank you for the generous offer of an extra 20 dollars. I’ll be happy to accept your payment of 120 USD which you can transmit to me via PayPal at your earliest convenience. If that is not acceptable to you, I’m also willing to deduct the payment directly from your bank account to save you the hassle of having your assistant mail a check or me a delay in payment. For this I will need you to please send me your bank name and account number, along with the following information:

1.) Your full name
2.) Date of birth
3.) Your full social security number (although I seriously doubt you have one)
4.) Your complete address
5.) Your mother’s maiden name
6.) Your father’s middle name
7.) The name of your first pet
8.) Your favorite teacher’s name
9.) Three flavors of juice that you like to drink for breakfast along with your eggs
10.) Your top three favorite M&M colors listed in order of reverse preference
11.) The name of the last movie you saw in theaters
12.) Your blood type
13.) Your home number
14.) Your cell number
15.) Your AIM screen name
16.) Your favorite flavor of ice cream (if you do not like ice cream, I will accept the name of your favorite breakfast cereal).

Once I’ve received all of this very important and necessary information, I will contact my bank to make a direct withdrawal for the full amount of the table. After this transfer occurs, I will wait until the next eve of the full moon to contact you with a specific location where you can meet me to pick up the table.

I wish you well and look forward to completing this transaction.

All the best,
