    Bizarre update to my last status: After nearly two weeks of silence from the "seller" and a barrage of mails from yours truly, she has finally and surprisingly replied, telling me that she's incredibly sorry, but that her life is crumbling around her, and that she wants to repay me, in instalments, with interest! I'm a bit nonplussed.
