photograph holding a sign of my choice (that way I know it is not an old photograph)

1. A photo of you holding a sign saying “Hello Big Boy”

2. £5 by Western Union

conclude this transaction quickly. If you are agreeable (there should be no reason

If he has any brains, this should be the last email I send him
