Let me introduce myself. I am Thao Vu, 29 years nonsmoker Vietnamese lady coming to Singapore,I am doctor on cruise ship and I have limited time to surf the internet but I will find time to call you. I will like you to kindly calculate the total cost covering my first three months’ rent together with deposit but I will be staying long as soon as your room is available. I will also like you to kindly get back to me with some pictures of the room and your address for me to forward it to my mover agent to calculate the total cost of moving my stuffs to Singapore.I had attached a copy of my passport data page for you to have a picture of me. I will be waiting to read back from you.
Cheers Thao
This was the email sent to me ( as i have posted an add on room for rent in gumtree) . So after this mail i have sent the required data as she requested. After just a few minutes she replied me.
Below is her reply email From: Thao Vu Date: Friday, 20 May 2016 Subject: Room for rent
Hello, Many thanks for getting back to me again. I am very social person that respect humanity and this make it so easy for me to get along with whoever that comes my way in life. I am arriving on 30th of May and start working in Singapore. I will be securing the room by transferring the rent to you through PayPal and if you do not have a paypal account kindly set up an account with them in less than 5 minutes on I would have requested for your bank details but for the safety of you and i with giving bank details online, I prefer going through PayPal. I will be so happy to secure the room as soon as you get back to me with the PayPal money request. All you need to do is to log into your PayPal and click request money, you will then send the money request of total 3 months rent to my email address for me to transfer the money. I will like to pay in advance through PayPal and my reason is that, I will be presenting the proof of my rent payment to my employer and also to the immigration at the port of entry into Singapore.
Cheers Thao
