Hello! My name is Michelle Bell.I got your email from the scentsy
website. We would like to order the scentsy products below for our
upcoming family function.
6x Baked Apple Pie Scentsy Bar
6x Black Raspberry Vanilla Scentsy Bar
2x Angora Scentsy Warmer
2x Aspen Grove Scentsy Warmer
2x Meander Warmer
I will need to know the exact total and how you would like to handle
this.. They are 12 Bars & 6 Warmers. Delivery is with in your zip
code. I will just need the exact total so we can see about ordering
them in time for the party. Thank You

Sounds good. So total would run $ 243.56 for everything we have
listed?? Our family event is in 3 weeks time so we would have to order
them soon. My uncle is paying for this and will send out a check
A.S.A.P! I will just need the names, address mailing information to
fill out the check payment. Thank you :)

It should be fine. I will inform you as soon as we send out the check
payment to continue with this order. Will be in touch soon. Thank you

I apologize for the delay in getting back to you. I have been encountering some medical issues that have been becoming more prevalent for me, but I am on the mend.. I wanted to confirm QUICKLY if you rcvd the check payment yet? An issue came, and I have just been informed the check was accidentally issued out for more than the required amount. I understand the additional amount on the check would have been issued out separately to my cousin to arrange for the other party items.
You will have to understand with us seeing as the check was not made out by me, but by my uncle. I would hate for things to get any further delayed since the event is approaching. So what I am asking is that you forward on the extra$$ as soon as you have received and cashed the check. It should be fine. I will just email the name and the address info where to return back the overage once the check clears. Please let me know how you would like to handle this. Thank you

Thank you for your email. I was getting worried since time is of the essence here.. I finally have just been informed you will be getting the check payment today. If you would just go ahead and deposit in the check funds as soon as it is received to avoid any further delay and to be able to place order when it clears! I will email the name and the address information where to return back the extra $$ once the check clears. Thank you
