Hello,

I know this email might seem a little strange as it is out of the blue but I ask for 2 minutes of 
your time to hear me out.

My name is Adam Gershkovich, I have worked very hard all my life but due to me caring more about my 
business than my health and ignoring all the tell-tale signs, I am now dying of thyroid cancer.

All family members and close friends that I trusted over the years have all betrayed me.

I have always believed in the relief of poverty and the advancement of education which is why I 
want to give away the last of my wealth ($30.5Million) to non-profit organizations. 

I can not do this on my own and need your help to secure and distribute the amount, which is why I 
have contacted you. I do not expect you to do this for free which is why I will give you a 
percentage of the said amount.

If you do decide to help me I will get back to you with more information.

Thank you for your time

Adam
