Thanks for the response,I would have loved to call you directly but due to the nature of my work we do not have access to phone at the moment,its 20 days off and 10 days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.

I am buying this for my first son who just graduated on top of his class at Charles Darwin University in NT ,He studied Building Design & Architecture. I want it to be the perfect graduation gift for him and am making it a surprise package ,Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don\'t mind my asking.I am already in talks with freighters that will handle the pickup and delivery .I will really appreciate if you can email more info

Due to the nature of my work i am a very busy man working all day,am a sailor am presently on-board, i don\'t have access to my bank account online as am not with my credit card details here but i have my ANZ bank account link up with my PayPal account so I will be paying you through PayPal to your nominated bank account or better still is if you have a PayPal account ,please get back to me with your BSB and account details or PayPal account so i can proceed with the payment and contact the courier agent who will come to pick it up and deliver it in NT for my son .Await your reply .


2nd Message
Thanks for the mail,i appreciate your honesty with the detailed explanation with regards to your words on the car really satisfied and i also appreciate your honesty about the condition of the car as that is what i really need most as wont be able to come for inspection as am on-board.

Happy to inform you that the fund is ready and available in my PayPal account so am ready to transfer the fund as soon as you get back to me with your payment details. Waiting to read from you ASAP.


3rd Message
Am so sorry for the delay i was so busy at work, I was just about to make the payment now when i had a little problem with the freighting arrangement, the freighters said i will need to pay for the freighting fees before they can schedule pre-shipping/ pickup date,they charged $1,650 aud for the pick up and delivery, but the problem is they only accept western union money transfer as form of payment which is sent to their HQ I have tried to see if I could get the money sent to them through western union\'s website but unfortunately I would be needing to use a credit or debit card which I didn\'t bring here.

As you are well aware of, I am away at sea and do not have access to western union, most post offices have western union section,will it be ok with you if I add the $1,650aud to the amount I am transferring? and as soon as the money goes through you can help me make the western union transfer of the freighting fees through western union money transfer? You are not obliged to help me, but i will indeed appreciate your help as I am a little incapacitated here.

Last Message
I have just made the payments now and i also requested that Paypal should send a payment notification message to your inbox here and i expect Paypal to have emailed by now,please check your spam/junk folder as I sometimes get Paypal notification there,I sent $16,750aud in all, Paypal said they would be holding the funds and it won\'t be credited into your account because of the excess payments of $1,750 aud i added meant for pick up and delivery, they said they have emailed you to this effect, you will need to send the $1,650aud to the freighting company headquarters in UK via western union money transfer,so that Paypal can credit the $16,750aud into your account as soon as you have emailed the western union details to them, i added extra $100aud to cover the western union charges which shouldn\'t be more that $60-80aud but just to be sure i added $100aud, Here is the pick up agent info needed to get the money sent through western union money transfer:

Patrick Johnson
International Logistics Centre
Fosse Way,Newark
Nottingham shire, NG24 4SP
United Kingdom

I will need the full address of where it will be picked up now,as my pick up agent will contact you to book a pick up time after they have received payments but they will have to book a time that is convenient for you.
