Thanks for you response XXXXXXX
Please I want you to help me with an ITunes gift card worth $300 at $100 or $50 denominations from any store around you for a friend of mine going through cancer in the hospital. She needs the cards to download her favorite music and videos to boost her confidence on her next phase of surgery and fight over cancer which she's going to undergo tonight but i can't do this, I will surely reimburse you as soon as I can. Email me and let me know if you can do this,so i can give you her email address so you forward it to her directly
If you receive one of these emails please let Charlie know ASAP.
