Hi Michelle

The payment has been sent so I would want you to deduct the total amount you stated for the rent and then send the balance through western union transfer to the travel agents responsible for transportation as soon as you can.
This is the travel agents name and address.

Mr Steve Merricks

Transworld Travel Services
134 Upton Lane
London UK.

Send the money to Steve Merricks through western union money transfer, then send the information given to you to my email so I could confirm to him so he could pick it up.
