I note your predicament. Please clearly list each item needed and the cost.
Also provide your bank account details for transfer.

Now that we are getting in to delicate financial territory, I think it best if I ask
you to add a security phrase to each of your emails. This will ensure that I know
that the email is genuine. For greater security I will change the phrase each time. I
hope this does not complicate matters too much for you. It is really not too
difficult and even someone with your limited education should be able to follow it.

Most important is the placement of the security phrase. This we will agree now and
will not mention again. In this way, if someone intercepts our communication, and
tries to use the security phrase, they are most likely to place it in the wrong
position. I will then know that the communication is false.

ALWAYS place the security phrase straight after the salutation. So, to be clear, your
email will start "Dear Uncle Stink" and then you will place the security phrase and
then complete the email.

I hope that is clear.

Your Uncle Stink

Security Phrase for your next email:
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
