Thank for the response, i will give you my credit card details to make the payment for $2,750.00. for the web design. however i will need a little favor from you, as the content and the logo are with my consultant and i need to pay him up and he do not accept credit card payment, so i will need you to add an extra $3,500.00 to the money and i will pay it up, when the money is available in your account you will be helping me send it to my consultant so that he can send the logo and the content to complete my project. i will like you to send the invoice from the quote. I will need you to send the invoice of half payment for the web design, also i will love to compensate with $350 for your effort and i will be giving you my credit card to put through a total amount of $6,600.00. Presently am at the hospital for the surgery for my hearing disability, that’s why i won’t be able to go the bank. i hope you would be able to understand my present predicament and help me out.
