Thanks for your reply, I'm seriously interested in buying this item for my brother as a gift. What's your last price? What's condition of it and Why you want to sale it?,I won't be available for pick up for myself or him,moreover, and currently out town due of my work so i will not able to come for the inspection. I really want this as a surprise gift for him so i won't let him know anything about this until it get delivered to him. You can mail me back with your PayPal email address if you have paypal account or if you don't have an account with paypal you can set up an account at now cos it's secured and reliable. So that I can make the payment to you right away.Do not worry about shipping or picking up the item as my pick up agent will come and pick it up from you once have made the payment to you. Get back to me asap. Regards

Obviously bogus, double checked here to be sure.
