Ok, thanks for the reply. I'm very happy to read back from you. I'm currently at my son's place here in Exmouth-WA for his wedding ceremony coming soon. also, I will not be able to meet you for inspection and collection because of the coronavirus isues, I cannot cross the border, I will be here spending my leave with the new family till january 2021, but I have a personal representative agent that will be able to cross all borders and meet you for collection after payment has been made. I cannot take calls or make one due to my ear barotrauma from my last air flight, I barely hear clearly and my email is the best channel for me to communicate. I want the agent to deliver it to my new house in Exmouth-WA before my arrival. I am ready to make the payment so get back to me with the details below : Account number. BSB. Name. Final price: That is all I need to make the payment through a secure online bank transfer from my bank to yours. I will transfer the money to your account and my representative courier agent will meet you for the collection and deliver it to my new house in Exmouth-WA after you confirmed the payment. Please consider my payment method because I cannot travel around with cash, risky and I cannot visit you due to the distance. Best Regards.

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.
