Thanks for getting back to me, i can see all qaulities i want in a roommates in you, and am happy to hear more about you, actualy, i ll like to secure the room down before my arrival, i plan to arrive in 7 days time after you have recieve my payment, cos i ll be coming down from Dominica Republic and i plan to stay for 12 months or more if thats Okay by you.
Moreover, I am comfortable and happy with your rent amount/move-in cost, My client to forward you a Money Order of pay, from which i will like you to deduct the necessary fee for the place, and you will help me send down the excess balance after your deduction, to my travel agent, for my airfare to the apartment.
I will need your full contact details as follow, phone number, full name and address and phone number so as to prepare the Payment. Also i will like to know the nearest airport to the house, so as to give you a call to pick me up on my arrival at the airport...
Please, kindly get back to me with answers(yes/no) to my answers;
1. Is any Western Union located where you can easily wire the balance around you?
2. Can you get the check taken to your bank, the same day you receive it?
3. Can you get the excess balance send the same day you get the check cashed?
4. Is the room in good condition?
Keep in touch
sigh....what a brat lol so i replied with:
The room is secured. You can stay for 12 months thats not a problem. Im glad the move in cost of $1250 is good with you. However, I will not accept a check over the amount of $1250, I will not take on the responsibility of wiring/transferring money to someone else when its not my $$ to begin with. You will have to find an alternate way to get the cash to them as i stated before, i will only accept $1250 for the move in cost.
please agree to meet these requirements before i release any information to you.
1. Is any Western Union located where you can easily wire the balance around you? no
2. Can you get the check taken to your bank, the same day you receive it? yeah sure
3. Can you get the excess balance send the same day you get the check cashed? i will not accept a check in excess amount
4. Is the room in good condition? of course
hope to hear from you soon!
