Thank you for your response,i will like to let you know that the price(£250) is ok
with me.Concerning the shipping of the Boyd of London,i have a Shipping agent
that would be responsible for the pick up of it at your location.

I will be paying by a cheque and i will wait for the chequeto clear your bank before
the pick up arrangement is made,I would instruct my client to issue out a cheque to
you and the cheque would cover both the price of the Item and the shipping
charges,so the amount on check will be £2,960 .I would want you to pay in the
cheque into your Bank account and when it clears,you would deduct the cost of the
Item and then send the rest of the money to my Shipping Agent Information given to

Ps:I want you to remove the advert from the Internet and consider it sold to me.If you
consider sold for me am going to compensate you £50..

Email back with your following details..

Name on cheque:
Name Bank:
