Okay am willing to add an extra $50 for you to reserve it in my favor.. And I'll be mailing a cashier check for the payment, and once the bank posts the fund, which shouldn't take more than a day, I'll arrange for the shipping. Let me have your name and address so that I can arrange for the payment
I received an offer today from K5BCN with the same email address as above, a few email exchanges went good then the check and paying $50 more than asking price for me to take a check was the scam alert for me...
