Hi again ,
Thanks once again for the quick reply I would have loved to call You
but am leaving now to see my sick uncle in Finland ,i can only
communicate through email but I will, whenever i get there but before
that i will want to secure the place, I am very happy meeting a person
like you It \'s nice reading from you again and i will never ever want
to loose the room even without seeing the place ,I will want You to
know that i am okay with the cost ,if none is included again..... I
got to believe that the person that one wants to live with matters
most i believe that you\'ll be a nice person I just have my dressers,
computer table, kitchen utensils and a queen size bed,2 big luggage\'s
and my car to be shipped....
I got a message that my uncle is sick in Finland, i hope have already
mention that before and i have to go see him but i am making plans to
secure place so that when i come back i\'ll just move in into the place
we are talking about. and with the way we ve communicated, I am okay
with you and i want you to know that i don\'t want to make any travel
plans without securing a place down now, I will be signing a year
lease for the start if you are okay with that so I’ve let my uncle
understand more about you and the place, He is really comfortable and
he told me that it is a nice area he had lived in the states before
and he said that i should not afford to loose your place also he said
that i should try and make sure that i hold down the place,so i
thought of it and i will be making payment to hold down the place and
the mode of payment will be by United State Certified Money Order or
cashier check so pls let me know the one you prefer. And if YES pls
provide me with the following information to get the payment to
you.Your full name as it will appear on the payment, your work place
address or home address,to ensure delivery in your hands through
regular mails or a courier service your phone number on the package to
avoid package missing in transit.I will be moving to your place by End
of May ,Kindly get back to me with this requested payment information
so that we can proceed asap i would also want to know if
the ad has been taking off the site?am attaching some couple of
pictures of my self along with this mail for you to have an idea of
what i look like.
Feel free to ask me any question(s) you have okay
Thanks...
