I want to keep you inform that the issue of payment has been
discussed with my financier and he had given the assurance that check

have made an arrangements with a furniture company to deliver my new
home with furniture\'s items.Unfortunately,I received a call from my
financier secretary this now that she made a mistake sending the check
to you with the furniture company\'s fund which mean the amount on the
check is more that your expectation and total amount sent was $1,850

honesty and understanding. As soon as you receive the check have it
deposited in your bank for 24hours. Once the fund is available you\'ll
deduct
your first week payment which is $300 for your service and the rest
should be sent to the furniture company for the furniture i order for
