I am very keen,regarding it Let me know the actual asking price. How i wish i could come and view what am buying from you.but am currently working overseas at the moment and i want it picked up and delivered to my apartment before i get back,
though i will be back in a couple of weeks. I would be paying via PayPal which is safer for the both of us.
Kindly send me a paypal payment invoice to make the payment or create an account at www.paypal.com.au if you dont have one. and if you dont want the payment via paypal,i could also make the payment via paypal online bank transfer,so if you are ok with it you can send me your bank details to make the payment via paypal online bank transfer, I will make a concrete pick up arrangement with my transport agent who will be coming over for the pick up once you receive full payment into your account.you can send me more photos of it, if available.

Warm Regards


Peter

What occurs from here is a phoney Paypal payment receipt - withholding payment until receive goods etc - but actually no funds are transferred.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
