Hello XXXXXX,
Are you available to assist? I am out of the State now and I've got credence in you to take care of this. I would have called your phone but I presently do not have access to my mobile phone.
Springwater Rod & Gun Club, needs some gift cards for donation to Veterans at Hospice and Palliative care units for preventive items against Corona Virus Disease ( COVID-19).
I have decided to make it a personal duty. I will be responsible for the reimbursement.
Pat,President.

Xxxxxxx,
Thanks for writing back and wanting to help. This is a simple donation as part of a charity pledge to the Veterans made on behalf of the Club, I have decided to make it a personal duty & I will be liable for the refund.
I need you to purchase varieties of Walmart,Nordstrom or Target gift cards which total $600. 6ty of $100 each. You can get them at any Kohls, CVS, Kwik, Macy's, Wal-Mart, or Walgreen's, Drug stores, and any convenience Stores or Online E-codes.
I tried purchasing the cards online myself but my credit card company is denying the immediate approval. I'll be responsible for the reimbursement of cards bought. Will a check be fine for a refund?
Take the pictures of the pin #'s and send to Veterans Hospice Palliative Care notify me when it's done and have me copied on the mail.
Note: Donated by "Springwater Rod & Gun Club"
