Lost in Translation...or else I'm going to Japan....

Received this email this morning regarding one of my ebay sales (actually the little green purse I made...going all the way to Japan...who knew...).
Hello. I completed payment.
I remitted 25.89 dollars (an commodity of 15.90 dollars and the postage of 23.15 dollars ) in total in PayPal.
Please confirm it.
Vintage Jewelry-Decorated-Green Gold Wicker Purse SWEET(Item #160127563286)
Please send it to Japan by air mail.

I want you to send the commodity surely by not shipping service but the air mail.

Please send merchandise as ahead of time as possible.
I want you to arrive within one week.

Please give me mail when the product launch ends.
I am looking forward to the commodity's coming.


Not sure how the translating software will explain that airmail has been discontinued by the USPS and is no longer available as a shipping option. Wanna make some guesses?
