Funny. I was approved as well. Perhaps we should run up the price and not pay. Then what would happen ?

Hi,

About the deal here are my details:
this is my name:Charlie Fowler
and adress for the payment:
Street: Via A. Manzoni,
No:96, Napoli,
Zip code:80123,
Italy.
I will pay for the shipping fees and for ensurance in
case of any damage during the shipping .I will mail
you the tracking number from the package with the item
so youwill know when you can recieve it.
The fastest method of payment so we both can be
satsfied is Western Union.For this you have to go
personally at their office and make the payment from
your name and adress to mine.From there you will get a
conirmation in which will contain the MTCN(money
transfer control number).After that you will mail me
the following details:
-sender first,last name and adress
-the MTCN
-reciever first,last name and address
-the amount that you sent
With all these I will go to an Western Union office
and check the payment and if it is OK than I will make
the shipping right away and also I will need your
adress where you want the package to arrive.
After the arrival you will have a 15 days period to
try the item and if is not satisfactory with your
needs you can send it back on your expense and you
will recieve a FULL REFOUND WITH NO QUESTIONS.
These are the details that you need for the deal and I
hope that this will be the begining of a good
partnershipp and I will be glad if you will recomand
me to your friends for great bussines.

Im waitting your mail.

Regards!
PS: I want to ask you to tell the lady from Western
Union that this transfer is for your member of your
familly, and not for a selling, because I and you
will pay some aditional fees . I hope that you
understand my concern.

Can't run the price up. No way to enter a "normal" bid. First sucker to click the Buy It NOW button "wins the prize".
