Hi

I'm so glad to hear the room is still available for rent. My full
name is Janey Johnson. Here is little about myself, i speak both
English and German, am single, fun, loving, clean, and respectful of
others, don't do drugs. My father is from Germany and my mother is
from US, am { 23yrs old/Female }. I was born in Munich Germany and i attend
Hamburg University of Technology Germany i graduated 2yrs ago.

I'm coming for a long term stay and am ready to sign a year lease as
soon as i get there but am presently on research work at Guam and will
be coming for my master's degree starting from MARCH but will be
arriving MARCH 12 . I'll like to pay for the deposit and a month
rent... I would have loved to call you but here is a remote area calls
are very hard to go through, so please try and understand and also
I'll would have like to come and check at the room before renting but
am very far... but with pictures that will makes me happy.

I'll like you to tell me more about yourself and if you have garage or
parking space cos i will have my own car come over, please let me know
the total amount for the first month rent and payment will be done by
via US Cashier's & Certified Check. So I want you to feed me back with
the following details so that i can ensure you are ready to accept the
payment.


INFORMATION TO FACILITATE THE MAILING OF THE CHECK

1* Full name :

2* Address {Not PO Box}:

3* City, State, Zip Code :

4* Cell number :

5* Month rent :


Waiting for your e-mail with the information requested so that i can
forward it to my father to issue out the check for the deposit and
month rent with that you can hold on the place for me till i come
