Yes am okay with all this detail you give to me with the price.So l want you to give
me your full contact details such as..Full contact name,full contact
address,postal code and your direct phone that the payment can be
made to you on time.
As soon as i get this i will instruct my financial to issue out  check payment for the
piano immediately..Importantly are mine going to provide for the picking up or you
will do that?Please get back so i can finalise all before travelling for my missionary

May the peace of God be unto you and your family..

Yes it is still available. It is in good condition and full working
order, but needs tuning.
I am in south Manchester if you wish to see it.

Further to the scam notification, this guy has been emailing me constantly... and i have now received a cheque for £2100.00. (piano for sale at £800). Not even attempted to cash of course.

I have found out that the cheque which ive got is for a "Finchley Rugby Football Club" and the bank is Allied Irish Bank.
