I've never met anyone from STATE. I'm not sure but I don't think this guy is really going to pay me $700 for my laptop. Here was my response to him: br>
Larry I'm sure YOU would be willing to PAY me $700 dollars for the ITEM, but unfortunately for me I'M only selling LOCALLY to people IN my AREA that are smart enough to ONLY pay what my COMPUTER is WORTH. Thanks anyway.
I hope I didn't blow the sale.
