Hello,
Thanks for getting back to me,Like i said earlier i am presently in the Western Africa .there won't be any probs about the shipment,after payment ,the pick up will be made at your place. i have made arrangements with the prepaid shipping company.
As regards payment,this is what i am going to do.I have a client in the US who is owing me $3,700 i would instruct him to
makeout a certified check to you in that amount and as soon as it clears your bank. you can now deduct your money from it and send me my balance via western union ,i will be using part of the money to pay for the shipping and other expenses ..Although the value of the check is more than the asking price but i think i should be able to trust you with my balance.
So if my terms are acceptable to you,i would like you to give me your full name,address and phone number so that i can instruct my client to make out the check to you.
Pls get back to me as soon as you get this mail so that we can round things up in a timely fashion.
Thanks in this regard,
Victoria.

Victoria--
I attached a couple pictures. The one isn't very good, but it shows the
colors well. The warning label has all of the canopy information. It
jumped 2 days ago and worked amazing! I have mailed one canopy to
England in the past, and it cost around 30USD. My preferred payment
would be through paypal.com, and they charge a 2.9% fee. I'm willing to
share the shipping/fee costs with you, so If you send 875USD to the
paypal account c06gary.glojek@usafa.af.mil we have a deal. If I receive
payment today, I can mail the canopy either today or tomorrow. Which
country in West Africa are you in? Take care, I look forward to hearing
from you.--FG

i got this one too just reported it:

Hello,
Thanks for getting back to me, i am in the U K presently but there won't be any problems about the shipment,after payment ,the pick up will be made at your place. i have made arrangements with the prepaid shipping company already.
As for payment,this is what i am going to do. I have a customer in the US who is owing me $1,200 so what i would do now is, i will instruct him to make out a payment( Check or Money Order ) to you in that amount and as soon as you get it cashed. you will deduct your money from it and hold on to the remaining balance till i come back to the US in some weeks time ,as i will be using part of the money to pay for the shipping and other expenses. Although i know the value of the payment is more than the price you asked for but i think i should be able to trust you with my remaining balance and the item pending my return to the US.
So please if my conditions are okay with you,i would need your Full Name,Address,City,State,Zip Cone and Cell Phone Number so that i can tell my customer to get the payment sent out to you as soon as possible.
Pls get back to me as soon as you get this mail so that we can seal the deal in a timely manner.
Best Regard
Vickie.
