Just wanted to let you know that I havenít received the email you refer to and would like to speak with you directly when convenient for you. If itís ok could you send me a contact number or alternatively if you prefer call me on 07736 459754.
SCAMMER: unfortunately i can't use my voice due to my recent neck surgery
the idea is that i need the money into my bank account
so let me know if you can make a bank transfer or not
Sorry Duncan. I have a couple of friends from Belfast who are quite experienced with neck injuries if you would like to give me the address for collection I can send them around.
Of course I CAN make bank transfers as I am not a simpleton. Can you provide engines?
You gotta wonder who actually falls for these scams really don't you?
