Hello, I’m in a meeting right now and that's why I'm contacting you through here. I should have called you, but phones are not allowed in the meeting. I don't know when the meeting will be over, and i want you to help me out on something very important right away from a store around and I will reimburse you when you get back to the office. Let me know if you can do this.

I need you to help me get a Amazon gift card from the store and I need you to send it to someone and i need to get it sent as soon as possible .

The amount I want is $100 each in five (5)pieces so that will make it a total of $500 I’ll be reimbursing back to you. When you get them, just scratch it and take a picture of them and attach it to the email then send it to me here ok and don’t forget to keep the hard copies for me.

Thanks you.
