bank regarding the Payment,item would be picked up by my pick up agent
company {Courier Exchange Logistics Company} which I've been using for
a while and they're very reliable. NOTE : I made an extra payment of
300 RM and i am sure you noticed that, you'll have to send the
extra amount to the Shipping Company through Western Union right away,
so that the pick up agent can come as soon as possible for the pick up
. I will need you to send the excess fund to my pick up agent
Headquarters where they normally confirm any commission payment via
western union Office, pick up agent Headquarter info needed to send
the money through Western Union :

amount to the Shipping Company right away so that you can get your
money immediately. It's Nice Doing Business With You
