I have a room for rent advertised currently. I got a text message first that I couldn't reply to at all. I then got the following email after I sent one to the email attached in the message;

Hi,

Thanks for responding so quickly, my name is Annie. I am 28 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

Then this one ensued once I said I only take cash for payments;
I am on a cruise ship and i will not be able to inspect the room till my arrival. I am willing to take the room as is. Everything is fine with me and i am willing to abide with your decision. Kindly get back to me with your Bank details so that i can transfer the deposit asap. Cheers.
