Subject: VERY URGENT
Attn: Jarman Adlermacher,
Thanks for your email response, I didn't know this person you are asking me, may be there is mistaken some where between you and the woman. No body supplied me your email, rather I got your email from our Chamber of Commerce here. Please you should be very careful with other people you are dealing with because people can be so cruel, nefarious and rapacious.
