Wow, ok, is this because it\'s a holiday today? I actually don\'t celebrate the Fourth of July so I can take care of the Moneygram as soon as you send the Paypal. Sorry, for all this trouble!! I appreciate your kindness and trust Alexander.

I was just about to make the payment when I encountered this problem. The pick up agent said I must pay for the freight fee before they can schedule a pick up time. I\'ve been charged $950 for pick up and delivery. The payment needs to be made through Moneygram. I will add the $950 to the money am sending to your Paypal account. Once am done making the payment, kindly help me forward the freight fee to the agent. I would have done it myself but I can\'t send money through that means due to my present location. You can find Moneygram in Walmart, to be precise. I\'m a little incapacitated but I\'ll appreciate your help here. Please respond a.s.a.p. so that I can know my stand.

Ok, very understandable. What is the company/ agent that you are using?

Once I make the paypal payment and is transferred into your account, the agent will contact you in-order to handle the pickup from your location and he will also be of assistance concerning the change of ownership by presenting all the information\'s/documents needed to complete the change of ownership.

This transaction is based on HUGE amount of trust and I expect to see this from your end as it is on mine.

I\'m very much interested and I want you to know that you don\'t have to surf around looking for buyers because you\'ve just found one. This is a gift for my Dad in Idaho, I hope you understand my eagerness to complete this transaction a.s.a.p...?

I am away at sea at the moment, I work as an Oceanographer presently assigned to an important mission outside the country.

Ok, it\'s serviced with all regular maintenance from the dealer, great condition - runs smooth! I\'ll be buying a new car, thanks. What\'s your paypal email?

Hello Patrick,

Thanks for your response. I am interested in the immediate purchase. I will take it for the price you\'ve mentioned and I will gladly cover PayPal charges from my end.

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 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.

Question: I\'ll like you to tell me more about the present mechanical condition, how often do you service it, mechanical history, have you ever experience any mechanical problem with it before and why are you selling it?

Look forward to reading from you at your earliest convenience.

Best Regards,

His \"Payment Emails\":

I will like to inform you that I have sent the payment and I expect paypal to have contacted you by now. I paid $20,950. I got a notification in my spam mail. Please confirm if you have been notified by paypal...?

I added extra $100 to cover Moneygram fee and the stress you might encounter. Here is the pick up agent\'s information needed for you to complete Moneygram:

Name: Daniel anderson

Please send me your address where the pick up will take place and also a contact number where you can be easily reached because I must forward all that to the agent in order to book a convenient pick up time immediately your account is credited and they have received the payment.

Great doing business with you.
Best Regards.
