Buyer Emails 

Thanks for the swift reply. I am still interested in buying it as I am
satisfied with the conditions because i read thru the AD..I will make
my payments with a certified check and Also I will be responsible for
the pick up when check clears. Kindly get back to me with below information 
in order to avoid any delay as i dont want to loose the item.

Name to be on the check.
Address to mail the payment to. (NOT P.O.BOX)
Phone number both land and mobile.

As soon as the information is been supplied,I will give you an update on
the payment as i dont want any delay in getting the puppy.. I will be 
highly grateful if you can withdraw the ad from the site and make 
me your favorite buyer.

Also,I will like to inform you that the payment check will include 
both your charges and the shipping fee.This is how it will go. As 
soon as the check clears in your bank,You will deduct your charges 
and keep the difference to the shipping agent that will come to 
your home door step to get the puppy from you and you will help 
me pay them at the point of pick up in person, so the puppy will 
get to is destination.
Please let me know if you will still sell for me as i will need to 
confirm this before the payment is been mail out to avoid any 
inconvenience,Reply me with the details to make payment to if 
you are okay with it..

	I was just about to make the payments when i had this little problem 
	with the picking up of theitem, as i explained earlier that i am on 
	sea and i tried to book pick up with my pick up agent, but they 
	asked me to pay first before they can make the booking, and they 
	only accept western union money transfer for payments and they 
	don't accept pay pal or bank transfer and I tried to send the 
	money online but i could not and I am on sea and there is no 
	way i can find a western union agent to make the transfer to my 
	pick up agent, I'll like to know if i can be able to entrust 
	those funds in your possession you'll be sending them the funds, 
	so i wanted to ask if it was okay for me to include my pick up 
	agent's fees in the payments I am about to send through PayPal,my 
	pick up agent charged $570 plus insurance and all of that,this I 
	would have done myself and not bother you but for the fact that I 
	am currently on sea Please let me know as soon as possible.I will 
	more than appreciate if you mail me back, and I will be making the 
	payments shortly.

PS:the shipping company's Head quarters is in usa and any pick up fees 
to be paid is sent to their head quarters by the payee, so the money 
for pick up will be sent to their head quarters in usa through western 
union money transfer(this can be done from any post office) or you can 
do it online at www.western

or my daughter in Nebraska? Send me an email to my email address {        }

Lincoln, NE as soon as the payment sum is received and then my shipping company crew 
should come for the view. Also let me have your full address contact to have my client

First of all I have to tell you that I can't use the phone due 
the casino policy. Here on the cruise ship, the dealers have 
prohibited to use the phone. The trailer is already at the 
shipping company in Jackson, MS ready for the shipping.The 
shipping process will take between 4-6 days, depending on your 
location. I have a contract with Google Checkout so this deal 
must go through them.
As I said in the first email I work as a casino dealer on a 
cruise ship and I can't meet you or bring you the trailer, 
so that's why I am using a shipping company.
Since this is an online transaction I wanted the both of us 
to be safe so for this deal I am using Google Checkout , and 
that means that you have 5 days from the time you receive 
the trailer to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not.
Here is how it works:
1.First of all I will need the following details from you:
- Full Name
- Full Shipping Address
2. After I will receive the details from you, I will forward 
them to Google Checkout.
3. After they will process your info, they will send us both 
invoices.Your will make the payment to Google Checkout and the 
funds will be 100% insured by Google Checkout.
4. Google Checkout will contact me and I will ship the trailer 
to you. After you receive the trailer you will have 5 days to 
test, verify and do whatever you need to the trailer.If you 
will buy it, then I will receive the payment from Google 
Checkout. Please take into consideration that I will get 
paid only after you receive the trailer and make sure 
everything is as agreed.
5. If you will decide that you will not buy it, Google 
Checkout will refund you and I will have the shipping 
company come pick up my trailer.

If you wish to make the transaction, please send me the 
necessary info so that we can proceed.
