TELEPHONE: 07031802988
EMAIL: mackrover@yahoo.com

Vehicle Details:
MAKE: HONDA
MODEL: INTEGRA
PRICE: 4950

get him to send the cheque, say it has cleared and he can send the corier for the car, when the currier come, give him a box or two or even ten, of really heavy stuff, he'll be forced to pay for the delivery, then when he gets back in touch, tell him you want the money for the bounced cheque, there s a link to a whole story about this that chewy put up. do it bud, well funny
