subject Re: Couch & Love Seat – $1500

Hello Ryan,
I appreciate your response to my inquiry. I am interested in buying it from you. I would love to come and check it myself but I just got married and am presently on an honeymoon trip to Hawaii with my wife. I would love a surprise change of furniture in our home on our return. Pls do withdraw , the listing from Web as i dont mind adding $50 for you to do that, so i can be rest assured that the item is held for me. I should believe it is in excellent condition as stated. I will be making the payment via a Certified Check, which my secretary will mail across to you. I’ll be picking the item from you with the aid of my mover. My Mover will be coming to pick it from you once the Certified Check has been cashed. Pls I will need both your full name and physical address along with your phone number to issue out the payment.
I await your response.

Thank You,



Sorry, cash in hand only. If you can get a certified check, you can get cash.

    Well, to be fair.. he DID say he wouldn’t pick it up until AFTER you had cashed the check.
