Emailed asking if item still available... same old story.... THIS IS A SCAM. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS PERSON!

Thanks for your mail. I would be glad to pay for it as soon as possible though I will not be available to come for supervision of the item, due to my flexible schedule. I will be paying you with my PayPal account because it\'s attached to my bank account and its safe and very secure way to make payment online. If my means of payment is accepted.
Kindly provide me with the necessary information below to proceed with the payment.

1) The pictures (both front and back).
2) What is the condition?
3) Are you the First Owner?
4) Your PayPal Email Address/ Name For The Account or Send Me A Money Request.
5) Item Pick Up Location Address.

I\'ll be responsible for the pick-up and the pick up money will be included in your payment to avoid delay and to enable pick up company to schedule an appropriate time for the pick-up at your location after payment have been confirmed by paypal,as i have other properties to be moved alongside with yours.. And if you don\'t have a PayPal account, you can easily go to and sign up. It’s very easy and reliable of funds.

Request your urgent Reply.
