Sorry that is too short for me, thanks.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Ok, but I can do one thing though. It's fine on my side but would another 24 hours help?
Expert:  F. Naz replied 4 months ago.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Perfect. Then it's fine. Thank you.
Expert:  F. Naz replied 4 months ago.

okay, I am sending you the offer please accept it so i can start working on this, thanks.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Which offer? you mean the switch to a live phone call?
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Oh you mean via email?
Expert:  F. Naz replied 4 months ago.

nopes, the offer for $250 in total

Expert:  F. Naz replied 4 months ago.

Yes on your email it will be there

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Wait a second, I was asked to pay $78 in total before I saw you as the tutor. Is this $78 included with the $172 or is this something separate? So that means I have to pay both $78 plus $172?
Expert:  F. Naz replied 4 months ago.

total is $250 so you will have to pay both 78 and 172

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Ok. I see what's going on. Actually I'm just going to answer this on my own. Apologies for the time waste but since I won't be accepting the offer, would the $78 be refunded back to my credit card? And how do I decline the offer? By not clicking on it right? Again, sorry about this.
Expert:  F. Naz replied 4 months ago.

Okay no problem, what are you willing to pay then let me know so i can see how much gap is there

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Well, I can only pay in total for only $150 (78+72) but that's a $100 difference right there and I'm pretty sure you won't be able to accept that amount let along the time restraint given. So I'll just answer these questions on my own. And I appreciate the help out but I'll do it on my own.
Expert:  F. Naz replied 4 months ago.

If you could make this $200 in total then i can accept your question, thanks. just a increase of $50

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I understand what you mean but unfortunately I won't be able to make this to $200 in total either. And I know it's only a $50 increase but even that is a lot for me hence as I've stated I'll answer this question on my own. I appreciate your time and effort but as a student, unfortunately I won't be able to pay $200. Therefore, will the $78 be refunded back to my CC?
Expert:  F. Naz replied 4 months ago.

yes it could be , contact customer service in this regard, thanks.
