But I'm able to access email anytime as we will make use of laptop so my only quickest payment option is PayPal as i can send money via PayPal anytime.since I'm requesting this transaction to be done via PayPal, i will be responsible for all the paypal fee/charges on this transaction and if you don't have an account with paypal,its pretty easy, safe and secured to open one. Just log on to www.paypal.com. and I hope we can make the purchase as fast as possible?I have a mover that will come for the pick up once payment clears and i will like to see more pics i look forward to hear back from you soon.

Your PayPal e-Mail Address :
Full name:
Firm Price:
Phone Number:
Pick Up Address

I apologies for the long message.

Thanks

It seems like he's more at risk than me because I would have the money in my bank account before I go to the bank to pay it off and have title released.

What say the wise ones?
Sorry to sound negative but this looks exactly like the craigslist scams your mother warned you about, or should have. Google it for examples.

Don’t walk away from it, run.

I'm leaving to go on a great sea voyage any moment now. There are no phones, no lights, no motorcars, not a single luxury. Except email. And high speed internet for the PP.

I wish someone would track down just one of these dirtbags and send them to ISIS. That's a beheading I'd PPV.

I wouldn't care if it was legit, I wouldn't sell my motorcycle to anyone who talks like that.

I know someone that fell for the Nigerian prince scam. I was laughing for a week because I told her not to do it.
