Apology :I was just about to make the payment when i had this little
problem with the picking up,I got an email from my agent...he said he
won\'t come for the pick up unless i pay him the agent commission fee
first in order to be able to schedule suitable a pick up date and time
and my pick up agent Headquarters is in the United Kingdom and all
commission payments made for pick up from anywhere in the world is
sent to their Headquarters in the Uk and the only form of payments
they accept is western union money transfer and i tried to pay online
( it requires a credit card to make the
transfer online which i don\'t have access to and there is no post
office on sea.(there is usually a western union section in most post
offices). So now i will include the $550 they charged to pick it up
and take it home(1st class treatment)to the payments i will send
through PayPal.After receiving the confirmation email from PayPal
after i have made the payments, i will need you to help me send the
$550 to my pick up agent through western union money transfer. The
western union money transfer can be made at a post office or online at .I will be making the payments shortly and will
email you as soon as am done.


he seem to be way to fast to write the emails and why would he tell me his occupation!

please look out for him!

i was wise to it very fast!
