Consider this scenario: You’re a law firm accountant. Early one morning while reviewing emails, you see a message from the firm’s real estate agent stating that the landlord has agreed to your latest counteroffer and is ready to move forward on the rental of your new office space. You continue discussions to finalize the deal, work on signing the paperwork and are ready to send over your deposit. A new email from the agent at the last-minute mentions changing banks and encloses updated wiring instructions.

You reply to the message confirming the change, the response says to move forward. And all appears well.
