Hello John,
Thanks for the quick response,am buying this Piano for my dad as a
surprise gift because his birthday on the way, may i know the last price you are
asking?. due to my occupation as a marine engineer at this moment i am presently
working offshore,sometimes access to regular email are very poor in offshore due
to inefficiency of the immarsat service.

Fortunately the internet access working averagely and i was able to come across
the advert of Piano . I really want the Piano to be a surprise to my dad by not
disclosing the Piano until the delivery is made to him,so am sure he will be more
than happy with the Piano.I don't mind adding an extra $50 dollars for you to take
the advert down from the site so that i can be rest assured that am in hand of the

I insisted on 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 Piano and pls if you don't have
PayPal account yet,it is very easy to set up, go on 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..Notice you don't need to
bother your self about the shipment,i have an pick-up agent that will come for pick-
up,they will also determine and secure the shipment,Hope to read from you soon.

To answer your questions:

It is still for sale. The asking price is c. It is being sold because it is no longer
needed. More pictures are available.

I cannot accept payment by PayPal. I can accept a banker's draft drawn on a UK

Yours sincerely,

I have had identical emails from this person. I was very suspicious as soon as she said the delivery company would only accept Western Union, but that they had an office in the UK.

Glad I found this post, but I was already very wary.
