Read my e-mail i'm in Uk now and i don't have any person show you the car , and for that i need have a warranty don't lost my time and i will come show you the car for the first person prove me the receipt from western union .
Please don't ask me show you the car before come my self there , because the keys it's with me and i need come my self show you this car in Doha.
I don't ask you send me or give me any money now,,,, only after you see the car... now i need have 100% warranty keep the car just fro you and come there next 2-3 days after you prove me the receipt.
I don't ask you send me any money before you see the car... only face to face make the deal, but i need to know 100% you have money ready and my self for keep the car just for you available... because another buyer want my car.....
I come to Qatar because I trusted his word, but when I arrived I called him and no answer, so I lost money and precious time on his promise.
Here is what I propose:
The service name that we'll use is Western Union transfers. You must find the nearest Western Union agency in any bank and you go to Western Union and you send cash (10.000QR-11.000QR) to any name you want for have warranty keep the car only for you and don't lost my time....When make payment you will pay transfer fee but don't worry about this because i will give you back for you don't pay extra money.
The transfer must to be like this:
sender name : your name
sender address : your address Qatar
receiver name : friend,wife name,brother,mother,father, etc...
receiver address : London , United Kingdom
(You probably do not have relatives in the United Kingdom, but it does not matter. You just assume for a moment that your member family is in United Kingdom. You go to Western Union and you say that you want to send the money to your member family, who is now in the United Kingdom. Then you send me a copy,photo of a receipt by e-mail. I will check if the transfer is real and I come to present the car) .This is a transfer from a person to a person and takes about 5 minutes.Or in case you have here person make this transfer for him name in United Kingdom
I don't have time lost with all the person ask me about the car.... and meet in UK with this..... only after you prove me the paper and check the transfer i can meet with this.... NO BEFORE THAT.
If you don't agree make this western union payment prove don't e-mail me back or if you are agree told me this and made the transfer payment prove and send the receipt for know keep the car just for you available.... because not only you want the car.
