following is the correspondance that took place after I email the product from the Kijiji site:
My name is Sgt John Holmes, I work in CANADA army.
First of all I want to thank you for your recent interest in my 2006 Polaris Sportsman 500EFI.
The atv is in absolutely perfect condition, no scratches,no engine problems or other imperfections. Never suffered any accidents. The price is $3300 with shipping included. I'm selling the atv at this price because I opened a new retail business one year ago and it's taking more money than we expected.
The atv is in Gander, Island of New Foundland.Usually shipment takes maximum 2 to 6 days depending on your location and will be fully insured against damages, shipped in a crated container.....on my cost!!As a shipping career I will use World Transport, all the shipping/handling and insurance charges are included in the sale price. You will get the package with all the papers, clear title, bill of sale signed by me as well.
If you agree with my above terms, I'm sure that we can close the deal as soon as possible.
Because you are from NFL we are very hesitant to make this purchase b/c of distance and of course we could loose $$ and not have any merchandise. The only way we would is if it could be charge on delivery. Let me know, we understand if that does not work for you. Out of curiosity, how would you ship it here?
I told you the price for atv is $3300 CAD including shipping.
The atv is at the delivery service in Gander, Island of New Foundland ( World Trans ). I'm not in CANADA for the moment and the pick it up option is not available... but I can ship you the atv for free. I am in US because i was sent with my unit for sharing of experience here , and i don't know for how long. About 250 members of the US Forces are currently serving here.
Everything needs to be clarified and I'm doing my best to take this sale to an end. The payment will be made safely under Global Payments assistance using their purchase protection program (PPP). About the payment, shipping, handling and refund procedures I will notify Global Payments and they will contact you shortly to let you know the terms and the security.
So if you want to make this deal i will need the following details to prepare the shipping : full name and address;shipping address;phone #.
I will wait your mail ASAP.
Thanks for the more detailed information. We are willing to do this, or in other words we have a deal the cost $3300.00.
Thanks for the info.I will keep the atv for you and I will contact Global Payments. They will send you all the details to complete this deal.
We then recieved a large confirmation email from Global Payments Inc. I am unable to add it into this spot, however I do have the email with a Transaction Invoice Number. Below is the last email we recieved from the so called Seller.
I have receive the confirmation of your payment from global payment and I will start the shipping today to your address and then I will send to you all the shipping info...
I will wait your mail if you have any questions.
my comments to you:
Global Payments Inc, is not a holder for 3rd party money,They seem to have no idea people are using their company name to rip people off. This has been a huge learning lesson and if I could catch "John" he would have well.... Unless you see the merchandise in person, do not do it. It is a huge huge rip off. The company of Money Gram is ligit however they have no idea that this is happening either
