I was just about to pay when i had this problem with the courier pickup, my pick up agent says,for them to deliver the item to my new home at Darwin, will need to pay for an upfront pick up fee before they can schedule a pick up time and date.They charged me $550 for pick up and delivery fee,which the payment for pick up are directed to their corporate international headquarters in China, and the payments is made through western union money transfer.I will add the $550 pick fee to your item payment.Will need you to help me send the money to my pick up agent HQ in 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 or you can get it done online via www.westernunion.com,i would have done it myself but as i am at sea and didn't bring my credit card aboard,.I will appreciate your help here.

i have just completed the payment and i expected paypal to have notified you to this effect.check your mail folders .I sent $1,250 in all.i added $650 but $550 will be sent to my agent in CHINA through western union at post office,the extra $100 is to cover the western union fee.Paypal said they will not release the fund until you email them the western union detail for verification,and also to enable my pick up agent to come for pick up and inspection.Here is the agent's details where the money will be sent.

First Name:Shengnan

Hi lynda I should be able to make the western union transfer for you but just waiting to receive funds into account as haven't received it yet but understand that it can take a couple of business days before it will go into my account,will let you know once I have received the funds for courier and make the transfer.

i think you need to read paypal message sent to you because have been informed ,you have been message to the payment i made on what you need to do to finalize this transaction,in having your fund released into your account immediately base on there security process.I was informed you need to check your mail inbox or spam inbox for there message.

If you are to go to any western union outlet location ..You get along with the cash you are to transfer with the charges which i think might be 18aud or more .You request for there transfer form when you get there ,fill it with the information given to you and yours.Once it done ,you tender the cash with the form.
The agent in charge will get it done and give you a receipt for the transfer.All you need is to mail the receipt to paypal via there message sent to you for there verification to finalize things up.
