    I originally listed it on ebay, but got this email from the buyer:

    "Hello Karol,
    My name is Lisa Daniel i'M from NY, but Presently i'm leading a conventional church program in UK. I saw your item (280073998021) and i'll like to buy it for my son that will be starting a Computer science course in University of Nigeria Next week. Do not worry about the shipping of the item, i will take care of that what you just do is tell me how much it will cast for you to ship the item true USPS Global Express(EMS) which i think is cheaper and easy to use,then you should tell me total amount of the item and shipping cost so that i can make payment you immediately. Moreover i would have prefer to send you a cheque but simply because i want you to ship the item first thing tomorrow, i will be sending you payment via PAYPAL,so make sure you get the package ready for tomorrow shipment ok? And kindly send me your paypal address or your contact,so i can make the payment right away. Thanks
    Lisa Daniel."

    In the words of Steve Miller.





    And if it is listed on e-bay it is illegal to sell it here.
