Thanks for the quick response, I am buying this for my first son who graduated ,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?. I don't mind adding extra £ for you just to take down the ads as first buy priority . I am already in talks with freighters that will handle the pickup and delivery .I will really appreciate if you can email more details and pictures

I am very busy with work, i am a sailor 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 bank account linked 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 Sort code, Account name & number and other account details or PayPal account so i can proceed with the payment and also contact the courier agent that will come for the pick up and deliver it to my son.

Hello again , I am glad to inform you that i have made the payment as discussed! PayPal said that they have sent you a confirmation email so kindly check the inbox of your registered paypal email.(a fake PayPal email will be sent to you requesting for money to be sent to the email address provided) I had a little problem with the agent they said they can only schedule the pick up date and time after they receive their pick up fee in their head office via western union,but due to me being house bound due to my throat cancer surgery,i'm unable to get to a western union shop to send it. I added the £305 they charged for the pick up and £40 for the western union charges,you will receive the total sum of £845 in your account after you have made the payment of £305 in cash at the post office and get back with the transfer details as instructed on the payment confirmation. Here is the details needed for the transfer below:
First name: Fuzhong Last name: Zhang Address: Lhasa 850100 Country : China
Please let me know once you've sent the money so that i can make necessary arrangements
Thanks for your help

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.
