I bought this in US and i just opened and used once. So it is not sealed. Meanwhile I got a gift iPad mini from my office and hence wanted to sell this. I registered the product in samsung website and 1 year warranty is available

I bought this along with case for 420 USD. Since I opened once, I would like sell this for 410 sgd, my final price

Thanks for mailing back, I\'m ok with the price and the condition, I
work with New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) and we are presently offshore
in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kupe project. We do not have access
to phone at the moment 15days off and 15days on and that\'s why I
contacted you with internet messaging facility. Regarding the payment,
i will be paying you through PayPal or bank transfer, please get back
to me with your bank info or paypal details so i can process the
payment or go to to create a free PayPal account if you
do not have PayPal account already. I have also contacted my courier
who will come for pick up and deliver it to my place in Darwin after
the whole fund has been cleared into your acct.

Await your reply

3)OK. I will transfer the payment as soon as I get on a computer and I will send you email after the transfer is completed. In the meantime, i want you to send me the full address of the house so I can give it to the Removal Company to calculate the cost of moving my personal stuffs down there.
I will appreciate that you put the screen protector.


I was just about to pay when i had this problem with the pick up, my
pick up agent says i will need to pay for the pick up before they can
schedule a pick up time, they charged me 245$ for pick up and
delivery, and payments for pick up made through them is made to their
corporate international headquarters which is in the CHINA and the
payments is made through western union money transfer, i will add the
245$ to the money i will send through paypal as soon as i have made
the payments, i will email you and let you know and please i will need
you to help me send the money to my pick up agent Headquarter in the
CHINA through western union money transfer, this can be done from any
post office, there is always western union money transfer section in
most post offices(you can do it online as well at, i would have done it myself but as i
am at sea and didn\'t bring my credit card aboard, i am a little
incapacitated. I will add 40$ for you to pay for the western union
transfer charges. I will appreciate your help here.

I wrote:
Sorry, I didn\'t get what you say.

5)I meant that I want to transfer your money now but i want to add 285$
to your money so you can help me get it and wire 285$ via western
union to the removal agency and pay western union commission with 40$.
I would have done it myself but i am on the sea as I told you earlier
and there is no western union office on the sea as you know and i do
not have access to my bank account online. The only mean of transfer
available is paypal and this is why I requested your help.
Do you understand now?

kindly assist.

I will like to inform you that i will first make the payments of my
agents fee to your account and when the payments clear and after you
have send it to them through western union i will now make the
payments for the rent
Please get back to me asap so I can continue with the transfer on time.
