just a couple of minor questions:

a. Have you actually received the goods yet?

b. Does the seller have many positive feedbacks?

c. Have any subsequent messages suggested cancelling Paypal and using Western Union instead?

I dont know why but something about the quoted message makes me immediately think of our friends from Nigeria, who usually try to sell paramotors on ebay and send similarly bizarre messages...... (see elsewhere on the forum!)

It may of course be genuine and if so a reminder of why teachers so deserve their 12 weeks a year holidays....

I had two separate Nigerians try to buy a wing I had for sale. I smelt a fish and rang the number out of curiosity, got a gentleman on the phone who cannot have long been off the boat from Lagos. It seems to me a chap does need to be careful out there...
