totally genuine I am sure however please forgive me if I wouldn't have responded had it landed in my inbox.
Go for it and well done.
well, I am jealous....
hi my name is george i am calling from your baaaank
Some people get all the luck
Lucky bugger, How come I don't get any offers like this......Stop dithering and respond straight away................PMSL..........
Take the 4 grand ! and the rest can get lost in the post.. lol.
If you only get the 4 grand, maybe the photos could be done remotely with a very long zoooooooooom! er.....
I take it that everyone is on the wind-up...
Yes you get a cheque for maybe £4000 but it will take forever to clear and then bounce and in th e meantime this John Ince will hastle you to pass over half if not all to the "wedding planner"...and if you give in then you will be out of pocket.
In the last year I have had emails along the same lines, once I had to tell the parties that they had double booked the Church as both were on the same day at the same time. Also been requested to do 4 "Royal" weddings, one in LA and the other in Aberdeen.
Ask for a Paypal 4 figure deposit and watch them go...
we are just taking the piss, John.
Good that is normally what I do to those guys...
The LA one I kept going for 12 emails!!!! and they agreed £20,000 plus hire of equipment and van rental on top.
I too would give this one a very wide berth. I am not convinced at all with it.
