Hello
However i want to believe that i won't have any problem with you and i
believed i can trust you with the rest of the money.Like i said in my
former conversation i am presently on business trip so please once you
receive the payment kindly take it to your bank and have it cashed
then deduct your required amount with the amount i offered you and
send the remaining difference to the shipping company representative
via Western Union, Immediately you send the difference to them they
will come with their truck to pick up the item from you.I will provide
you with the shipping company representative's information and the
means which you will use to send them the remaining balance via
Western Union.
I am really sorry this fault is from my assistant so kindly help me
out by sending the remaining of the money to the shipping company
representative so that the shipment can be completed.I will be waiting
to hear back from you soon.Provide me with the physical address once
again where the package will be picked up so that i can be assured and
also send me your cell phone number..
