I advertised room for rent and receive an SMS from Annie Josh asking if it's still available and that she worked on a ship as a chef and had little time to surf the internet. Wanted my address to calculate shipping cost of furniture from USA. Her first email is below.

Hi, Thanks for responding so quickly, my name is Annie. I am 27 year old non smoker lady coming to Australia. I work as chef on cruise ship at the moment and i have limited time to surf the internet and also phone calls is also strictly limited due to nature of my work. I will like you to make the arrangement for the total cost covering my first three months rent together with bond. I will also like you to get back to me with your home address for me to forward it to my mover to calculate the total cost of moving my little stuffs from USA to Australia. I will be waiting to read back from you. Cheers.
