    1st contact was asking if still for sale
    2nd was below

    Thanks for the mail,i am buying this for my son as his gift because i would not be around to celebrate with him i am a petroleum engineer currently on a rig offshore and due to the nature of my work,phone calls making and visiting of website are restricted but i squeezed out time to check this advert and send you an email regarding it. I really want this item to be a surprise gift for my son so i wont let him know anything about the item until it gets delivered to him,i am sure he will be more than happy with the item.I will make the payment through paypal because i don't have access to my bank account online as i don't have internet banking, but i can pay from my PayPal account,as i have my bank a/c attached to it, i will need you to give me your PayPal email address so i can make the payment as soon as possible for the item and pls if you don't have PayPal account yet,it is very easy to set up, go on www.paypal.com and get it set up ,after you have set it up i will only need the e-mail address you use for registration with PayPal so as to put the money through.I have a pick up agent that will come for the pick up immediately you have receive the payment in full.please get back to me with your last price.
    Jordan David

    I was just about to pay when i had this problem with the pick up, my
    pick up agent says i will need to pay for the pick up before they can
    schedule a pick up time, they charged me £700 for pick up and
    delivery,and payments for pick up made through them is made to their
    corporate international headquarters which is in the Africa and the
    payments is made through western union money transfer, i will add the
    £700 to your money i will send through paypal as soon as i have made
    the payments, i will email you and let you know and please i will need
    you to help me send the money to my pick up agent Hq in the Africa
    through western union money transfer, this can be done from any post
    office ,there is always western union money transfer section in most
    post offices(you can do it online as well at
    (www.westernunion.com)..., i would have done it myself but we cant/
    bring some of our personal effects along, i am a little
    incapacitated.....I will appreciate your help here.
    Jordan.

    told him its no problem i can sort thr payment asap

    and i bet some ppl when they get the fake paypal payment will sent the cash onwards
    i bet they get a few 700's sent a month

    I have just made the payments now and i expect paypal to have emailed you by now,i sent £11,250.00 in all, To (leebez666@aol.com) paypal said they would be holding the funds and it will not be credited into your account because of the excess payments of £700.00 i added meant for pick up and delivery,they said they have emailed you to this effect, you will need to send the £700.00 to my pick up agent Headquarters via western union money transfer,so that paypal can credit the £11,250.00 into your account as soon as you have emailed the western union details to them, i added extra £50 to cover the western union charges which shouldn't be more that £20-30 but just to be sure i added £50.
    Here is the pick up agent info needed to get the money sent through
    western union money transfer:


    OLAOLU SCOTT,
    12 UNICEF CAMP ROAD,
    IBADAN,
    OYO STATE,
    23402
    NIGERIA.



    I will need the details of the transfer once you have sent fund . . .
    1.The MTCN number that is the 10 digits number on the Western Union receipt
    2.Sender's name and address used in sending the money
    3.Actual amount sent.
    4.Question and Answer.

    Now give him a fake MTCN etc and make him waste his time going to the nearest WU.

    Take a look at this: http://www.thescambaiter.com/forum/showthread.php?t=109
