20K-COIN

Dear Great,

I have recently inherited a LOT of money from my late aunty.
I am looping for various ways to invest this. I could see this as an investment.

It would have to be a lot less though. What would you go to?

Hi there sir.

Thanks for your message. Sir how much would you like to give me? Let me know. Cheers

Sir,

Well face value is 20 so that is how much I would give to you. How much do want me to give you?

Regards
Fred

No mate. THE PRICE THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN ME IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. I HAVE HAD OFFERS OF 250,000 POUNDS. THE PRICE I AM LOOKING FOR IS MINIMUM 500K.

Hi Sir,

Just sounding you out.

That's a shame though because I had 200k in mind and you obviously won't go for that!!!!!

Cheers all the same- Fred

WELL, I HAVE TALKED TO MY DAD AND HE GOES TO ME THAT ITS OKAY FOR 200K. LET ME KNOW BACK IF YOU WANT IT CHEERS. IF YOU DONT WANT IT THEN I WILL GIVE IT TO ANOTHER BUYER WHO IS GIVING THE SAME. JUST POP A OFFER ON MY ITEM AND I WILL ACCEPT IT.

CHEERS

Sir,

Who's in charge of this sale- you or your dad?

I am a little confused. In your last message you stated that you had more than one offer for
£250,000. I have just offered you 200k, which is obviously MUCH less than the offers you already have…

How's your maths? Only robbing a young boy on eBay won't mape me feel all that good, and as far as I am aware you don't owe me any favours? And certainly not thousands of them!!

Check out your figures with your old man, and send another message to me if you are still interested though.

All the best Fred

Hi there. Sorry about that. Its okay, I will accept 200k. Cheers, very sorry about that.

From: redfacedass
To: great-UK-items

Sir,

Why are you akologising?

Also, you haven't answered any of the questions from my last message.

Again- why won't you take the offers for £250,000? It does leave this whole deal seeming a little fishy.

Seriously, I am struggling to talp business with you. How old are you? You should get your old man on- so I can get some straight answers.

Hi there. Well you can call me on 07888 65**** sir I am genuine, just call me. Cheers

Sir,

Just made my offer for 200k (Fingers crossed!!)

Fred

SIR YOU HAVE PUT 2.00 POUNDS

From: redfacedass
To: great-UK-items

Sir,

Yes that's right £2, which is 200k. Ten times the value of the coin! Is there a kroblem?

Regards Fred

From: great-UK-items
To: redfacedass

No you think I’m a fool. 2.00 is not the same as 200k.

From: redfacedass
To: great-UK-items

Sir,

There must be some confusion! My offer is for 200 kence!

Just realised the letters on my peyboard have worn off I must have stucp the letters the wrong way round for the k and the p. No way would I kay £200,000 for a 20k coin!!

(My offer still stands though- and it is the current highest offer?)

Pind Regards

A TOTAL TIME WASTER, AND A JOKER. YOU HAVE MESSED ME ABOUT AND CERTAINLY A REDASS. CHEAP SHIT. IF YOU CANT PAY THEN WHY BOTHER EMAILING..........WASTE SOMEONE ELSE TIME IF U WASTE MINE AGAIN, THEN WILL GET POLICE INVOLVED. AND NO YOUR OFFER IS NOT THE HIGHEST, LIKE I SAID BEFORE I HAVE COSTUMERS,
NOT CHEAP IDIOTS LIKE U....................

From: redfacedass
To: great-UK-items

Sir,

By the way, I just thought I should let you pnow that you might have same peyboard kroblem as me only with the letters 'O' and 'U'.

See "costumers" in your last message; thinp you meant to write 'customers'. (Unless of course you meant- “One that mapes or sukklies costumes” in which case I stand corrected!)

Good lucp with the sale and all the best Fred
