Good to read from you.I will send to you my Visa credit card details that will cover the cost of our booking,and the necessary arrangement for the guests.Moreover,we also made an arrangement with a logistics agent who will take care of all the guests logistics to include. 1) Accommodation 4)Transportation logistics during their stay. However,because of security reasons and confidentiality reposed on you and because they do not have credit card facility, we have decided that only YOU will have to handle the credit card information. So,once you receive my visa card account information, you are required to charge the total amount of {GBP 6,250} then deduct your deposit which is {GBP 850 } and send the balance of {GBP 5,400} to the logistics agent whose information will be forwarded to you once this is confirmed. N.B: All checks and balances will be made with you on 5th JUNE 2009 which is the final day of
the booking. So confirm this and provide me with your

Oh, I thought you were turning up tomorrow night.
Regarding the Armitage Bladder that we discussed on the phone the other day, do you want it in purple or monkfish colour. Also you touched on the subject of coming to the felching party – do you still want to go ahead with this? As I said, go to the website that you have used for all the relevant details Mark. Did you need some kind of help here? Are you still coming?

Mark, what is going on here, you asked for my address last
time we spoke. Is everything okay? When we spoke on the phone did you say you liked drinking “vinegar stroke juice?” I need to know in order to organise the reception drinks for when your team arrive. Do you need anything else? I would imagine having deposited your funds you will need some money from me, yes? That is clearly how these bookings work isn’t it?

My full name and address is:

Mark, can you confirm that you and your team are definitely up for
the felching party as I need to get the numbers down soon!

That’s fantastic Mark, I look forward to having a felching good time with you and watching you gulp my very own Vinegar Stroke Juice – full of protein! Anyway, I don’t know why we are talking about money as you paid me up front over the phone remember silly? Anyway, despite the fact that you have already paid me money for staying in my Hotel, Hotel Clagnuts, when do you want me to deposit lots and lots of money with you for no apparent reason Mark?

… I could bait Mark Smith no more. I think he smelt a rat with that last email.
