Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( timcharity@hotmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mr Timmy.
