Dear Mr. Nathan,
Thank you for your email, perhaps we will be able to get along with each other after all. I have just returned from the Western Union office where, to my embarrassment, I discovered that after paying for my flight and the train ticket to Heathrow I didn’t have quite as much cash left as I had hoped. I have sent $1700 dollars as a gesture of good faith and have a plan to obtain the balance, plus enough for drinks on the plane and a taxi at the other end. Hotel safes pose no problems for Mr. Nodelay.
The transfer details are as follows:
Sender: Mr. B.Nodelay
Office: Mr Thomsons, 12 Park Street, Lytham St. Annes , UK
Amount: $1700 (exc commission)
recipient: Ivani Ntshwanti, 197 Louis Bothan Ave, Orange Groove, Johannesburg, South Africa
number: 765 882 1304
question: What goes 99 bonk?
answer: A centipede with a wooden leg.
I hope to transfer the balance first thing tomorrow before catching my train to Heathrow.
Mr. B. Nodelay
