Just got this exact verbiage in an email today. The guy carried on all morning via email but would never answer my questions exactly. Finally I told him to just call me. Amazingly he did, but the conversation was interrupted by so much noise on his end of the call that we accomplished nothing. So then he emails again saying that there must be network problems on his end and he would prefer to just text. When I asked him what dates he was interested in booking he first said the 30th of February, then later he said the 30th of January, which was yesterday... it went on and on. I finally told him that I couldn't help with his project.
