Unsure as to why he’s sending me this but not wanting to disappoint the happy honeymooners (could this be a Mooney mass wedding, I wonder?), I quoted him a price of €96 p.p. per night.

So confirm this and provide me with your details as stated below.
(1) YOUR FULL NAME :
(2) ADDRESS:

so that we can forward the visa card to you.Also the names of the couples are listed below,

I also hope the stay of the couples will be made comfortable.

Sorry, €6000 for a car hire? I think you fell for a scam there, my mate Justin would do you a better deal then that! Nothing to do but to inform Mr William (wasn’t it Mr Ken?) that the banks in Spain don’t accept credit cards and to please forward the money (cash only, unmarked bills!) in a large brown envelope to my address.

If it turns up then I shall happily donate it to a charity (the “Save DJ Foundation”, it contributes to save me sandwiches).
