From the bottom up my friends….

Mark, it’s me again!
Sorry for emailing again so soon – I’m just so pleased to be selling this couch, it’s been such a burden.
It was mine & my exes you see, so it’s kind of symbolic that I’m selling it & someone like you came along to buy it. I must admit, I’m a very spiritual person, & I just feel that maybe you were meant to buy it!
I see on your Facebook page (see the attachment) that you’re a spiritual person too, as your most recent status update reads” I THANK GOD FOR HIS KINDNESS OVER ME & MY FAMILY IN THIS MONTH…” I guess kind deeds repay other kind deeds don’t they, which is why you must be helping furnish your father’s apartment. I can only assume that it was God’s will that you found second hand Swedish furniture at bargain prices on an Australian noticeboard website. He sure does work in mysterious ways.
I’m going to add you as a Facebook friend really soon, so then we can LIKE each others photos & comment on each others status’ & even share the odd poke or too! Do you play Farmville? I never really got in to it. Do you have an iPhone? If so we should SO play Words With Friends OMG I am ADDICTED!!
I see that on your Facebook page your name is listed as Adegoke Oluwatosin though – is Mark your Western name? I went to school with a lovely Korean girl whose name was Seaun but she used to go by the name ‘Tina’ at school. I think it was because otherwise Mrs Hook would have had kittens trying to pronounce it & 3rd Form PE was scary enough as it was. She never fell for the “I can’t swim because I’ve got my period line” They sure did breed them tough in the Scotland in the 40’s!!
Anyway, I digress. Yes I found you on Facebook & have saved all of your details (see attached) on file. I can’t tell you how chuffed I was to see your phone number was listed there too, so you don’t have to worry about sending it! I have it now saved in my phone as +234 807 613 1400 so don’t even worry about emailing it to me. I’ll call you tomorrow so we can discuss the couch further.
Goodnight, sweet dreams!
p.s. My bangers & mash were amazing by the way.

Thanks too for your prompt reply also. How sweet of you to be buying on behalf of your Dad, even though you live far far away & are very very busy! Is he setting up a new home? Or are you decking on an investment property of his by the Adriatic Ocean? Maybe you are buying many pieces of modular furniture such as this for his up market Swedish bordello? Either way, you are clearly a very kind soul to be going to such trouble.
Oh wow, your work does sounds very interesting. Where exactly is your rig & what do you do?
I’m so impressed that you know that your message came through as a text – can you read minds? You’re amazing!
Perhaps you could send your phone number, so that we can have a quick chat? There are a few things I feel best discussed over the phone as opposed to over email. For example there are a few minor scratches to the couch as my pet tiger used to sharpen her claws on the couch before she got too big to be kept inside. Nothing major of course, just a lovely bit of patina really!
Also which courier company do you plan to use? I’m unaware of any courier company that go to the extensive trouble of filling out the change of ownership papers for selling couches, yours must be very thorough. I must say, so far I am very impressed with your service – I’ll be marking you as an A+ Trader that’s for sure!🙂
One small problem however, I can only receive payments by either direct transfer of cash or rice, as I’m not a huge fan of PayPal – I assume this will be fine with you though? Or if that doesn’t work for you – perhaps I could just send you my credit card number & you can deposit it directly? I want to make this transaction as smooth as possible for both of us🙂
Thanks again Mark – look forward to hearing from you.
p.s. I think I’m going to have bangers & mash for dinner. What are you having tonight?

Thanks for the swift response and do as well advise on the least amount you will like to give it away as i am buying this for Dad and due to the nature of my job and location…i will not be able to come for inspection,am a very busy type as i work long hours everyday,i have gone through your advertisement and i am satisfied with it.
As for the payment..i can only pay via the fastest and secure way to pay online(PayPal) here.
I have a private courier agent that will come for the pick up after the payment have been made …so no shipping included and With the issue of my details,transferring the name of ownership and signing of all paperwork will be done by the courier services company agent so you don’t have to worry about that.
You can now send me your PayPal email so i can pay in right away and also include your address in your reply.If you don’t have a paypal account, you can easily set up one…log on to http://www.paypal.com.au and sign up its very easy… i would have loved to talk to you on phone but i work mainly offshore, our phone is down on the rig right now due to bad weather, that was why i sent you a text, i even wonder how my message deliver to your phone but for now we can only communicate through the same mailing channel.await your reply asap.
