Or he might have asked you to pay for an amount to verify the booking and reservation at the hotel. But before he asked you for that, he had already set your mind to how lovely and wonderful having a vacation this summer at the Bahamas would be. And boy! He does sounds so convincing! He can actually make you feel like you are already at the beach enjoying the warm sun and the interesting people you can meet there. And all the wild parties Bahamas offer.
