I have a vehicle for sale on craigslist. On 10-03-13, I recieved an email stating

Contact me at mjgoody120 (at )gmail . com or text (207) 517-0079 with your firm price. Thanks

Emailed him at adress, and this is what I recieved back

I got your response. Well, I have read through your ad and from what I have seen,it is priced favorably compared to others so I want you to consider it sold to me because I am ready to offer you the demanded price. I am Tech Sgt Mark Jones(Military) currently on duty serving the country. Presently I am out of town on duty in a remote area until December 20. We have a bad and fluctuating network here otherwise I would have called you and seal the deal on phone. At the moment, email and text messages works best for me.

Nevertheless,I am ready to seal the deal right away and pay you via my PayPal account that is attached to my bank account as it is the only secure form of payment that I have access to right now. So,kindly get back to me with your FULL NAME AND PAYPAL EMAIL ADDRESS so that I can initiate the payment immediately.If you don\'t have a paypal account, it is absolutely free to set one up, kindly visit www.paypal.com. A shipper will be hired that will come for the pick up upon the completion of the payment aspect of the transaction.Let me have the requested details to proceed with the payment if we have a deal.
