Subject: you were very honest and straightforward

Dear Eitan,
I am coming to you for some help.  I hired a company from ***** since it is close to the scene area.  I realize that I made a mistake with this company and now they held some materials until I paid in full and that invoice was quite inflated.  So, I have made my mistake and now I am paying for it.  I should have worked with you because looking back you were very honest and straightforward.  I was hoping to get a faster report from the other company, which they promised and in the end it was expensive for what I got.
Now, I am asking for a couple things from you. I am ready to pay ahead for this service. 

If you don't want to work with me I understand.  I really did make a mistake on this.
Thank You,
