Greetings Beloved.

I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed its 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 (mrsfarizahazeem2255@gmail.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day.
