Good Day,

Is it still available? I want you to get back to me with your asking price and with more pics, details including the present condition.
My company will be paying by check or by bank transfer, hope to hear from u soon.
My Regards

My response:

Hello good friend. I am sunny in nigeria today. I hope to sell my items for sale to you! Condition is excellent and the pictshurs were deatil! I will accept payment of $1000 to my western union saddle hat account but first, you must withdraw a bond from your savings account, and deposit it into mine for $4000. I will then have my ambassador return it to you. Next, my uncle, who was in a plane crash PROOF =plaincrasharticle.com= has 4.5million dollars USD. If you will facilitate the transfer of these funds to the carribean I will reward you with 20% sunshine fun.

Hope sell soon!
