Well i need the money fast so i guess i will accept your offer for 650 $ .
Here is how i want to go about payment and delivery :
You have to send me your full name and adress.
After that i will go to the UPS store and leave the package there for you.I
will give them your name and adress and the package for you.
They will verify the product to see that everything is ok.Also the legal
After that they will send you an email containing a payment verification
You will have to fill that form.
You must go to an Western Union Office and make a deposit on the amount we
agreed on my name.And then fill the form from UPS with the details about the
payment (MTCN, name and so on.)
UPS will verify if the money is deposited on my name at Western Union and if
everything checks they will send you the laptop.
After the laptop arrives to you if you are fully satisfied with it and
everything is ok you will notify UPS that all is ok and only then they will send me
the details of the payment so that i can collect my money.
This is the safest way for the both of us.
Let me know if still interested as soon as posible.
