Sorry for my delayed response, but I'm a soldier detached in Glasgow (Scotland) for a long time and I have been very busy for the last couple of days. Anyway, thank you for your interest in buying my car. The car is located in US right now and has US papers. Why is the price so low? I had to move out of USA because of my job and I am going through a divorce. So all that I want to do now is sell the car at this price, because I need to sell it fast. The car is fully payed and you will have absolutely no problems to register the car in the States.

I will tell you a few words about my 2006 Nissan Maxima SE:
VIN#: 1N4BA41EX6C830151 Miles: 28,232
Engine: 3.5L V6 SFI DOHC 24V Transmission: Automatic
It is in immaculate condition, no scratch, no need for additional repairs, and hasn't been involved in any accident. The motor runs very well. The interior looks great(NO SMOKING). The title is clear and on my name, it is not a salvage one. I want this transaction to go smoothly enough as I am caught in the middle of some very important events and have little time at my disposal. I already have tones of emails so I hope you understand that I need to sort them out. The car is ready to be yours, but only if you shall understand and you won't make me loose time as it has already happened to me.

The price is $3,600 USD! THIS IS MY LAST PRICE! I will not negotiate the price!
Also, I take in consideration only those buyers who are really interested in buying the car, to be sure that I'm not waisting my time with endless discussions. This way, I'll be assured of the serious intentions.
So if you are interested please email me!

Hello there,

Look how we will do this:
Before leaving I had prearranged shipping with MoneyBookers so my presence in US isn't necessary.
The car is locked in a MoneyBookers warehouse in US(Florida), ready for delivery. I will offer a 5 day period to test drive the car from the moment you receive it from the shipping company.

So if you want to make this deal I will need the following details from you:
Full Name And Address
Shipping Address
Phone #
After I will have all this details I will forward them to MoneyBookers and I will proceed the order. The car will arrive to you with a lawyer from MoneyBookers and he will help you with all the documents including title.
MoneyBookers will contact you with all the details that you need to complete this deal and also to see that I am covered by them and if I am legit seller. Waiting your email with the requested details...

P.S. For security reasons I'm not allowed to speak on the phone and we will communicate by emails!

James Preston


MoneyBookers will supervise our transaction and will insure that everything is 100% safe. I forwarded your information to MoneyBookers. They will shortly contact you with all the transaction details. Please let me know after they will contact you to confirm we have a deal. Please follow their instructions exactly and make the payment. Immediately after they confirm me that they hold your payment, I will proceed with shipping the car to you.
The total price of the car(including ALL taxes and shipping fee) is $3,600.00 USD.

*Note that this is a QUICK SALE, who pays for it - gets it, no questions asked, my terms are clear and if you have the money you can have your car!
James Preston


you will receive all the information you need for moneybookers. please let me know when you got it and when you will be able to confirm the payment to them se we can proceed with the shipping process. thank you!


Hello ,
I spoke with Moneybookers and I think they already send you the notifications of the payment to finish this deal with me. If you receive the notifications from them, please make the payment of $ 3,600 to Moneybookers agent and send the info to them so they can check the transfer and confirm the payment.

The car will be crated, will have an insurance and will be delivered at your door without you being charged one penny more. As soon as I have the confirmation that you confirmed the payment to Moneybookers, the car will be shipped to you and also will receive all the documents that I have for the car - the title (witch is issued in US, is clear of any liens and I have it in hand).

Let me know when will you be able to complete the payment.

Lookig forward to hear from you!


you can make it however is best for you, just remember you need to send them a copy of the receipt for verification and confirmation before we can proceed with the shipping process, so please let me know when the payment is confirmed so we can make the arrangements. thank you!


can you please explain what happened why they didn't let you???


i don't think this at all, i used moneybookers many times before and i am their customer since 2004 and i didn't had any problem with them. if you want to proceed please let me know because i can't wait anymore i am in a big lack of time. you will need to find a moneygram location and complete the form and purchase a moneygram money order and then send the receipt to moneybookers for verification. I think this should be enough so please let me know if you could do it today. thank you!


o wow!! i can't believe it...i was so ready to send the money over....until i found this...i couldn.t believe my eyes....if anybody know anything more about this...let me know
