How’s my old buddy? It’s been a long time. I have a big favor to ask of you. I need some money fast. I’ve got a great deal in the works, but I have to have another $6,000 to see it through. I tried to borrow it from Richard, but he wouldn’t give it to me. He claimed he didn’t have that much. It’s his loss. If you lend the money to me, not only can I guarantee I’ll pay you back by the end of the year, but I’ll throw in $2,500 in interest. But I have to have it immediately.
I hope to hear from you soon.
