Hi thanks for reply, i am a marine engineer, i am at sea right now. I
am buying this for my son as a surprise gift. I can only pay through
paypal at the moment as i don\'t have access to my bank account online(i
dont have internet banking with it), but i have it attached to my
paypal account, and this is why i insisted on using paypal to pay,all
i will need is your paypal email address to make the payment, and if
you dont have a paypal account yet, you can set one it cant take you
less than 3mins to do that, i will be expecting your paypal email so l
can pay. I have a pick up agent that will come for the pick up after
payment has been sorted, l will be waiting for your reply asap..

MY REPLY Perpetual, As I said in my last email, I do not intend to contact your father until you have filled out both of the rental application forms that i sent you PLUS sent me an Official Confirmation from the University of Calgary regarding your acceptance at their facility. Trust works both ways. Unless you do this, the Condo will be rented to another party. Thank You Geoff From: Perpetual Lawson [mailto:pelawson1@gmail.com] Sent: January-20-16 1:27 PM Subject: URGENTLY Hi there, I got an email from my father that he has emailed you to asked for the total price and you payment details so he can issue out the payment....Kindly get back to him with the total package for 2months and email him your payment details so he can issue out the payment..

'Perpetual Lawson' responded to a property ad on Gumtree and told me her father would be taking care of the rent for her. He turned out to have the exact same details as a scam already published on this site. 'Perpetual's' e-mail is pelawson1@gmail.com
