Dear Sir or Madam:<*xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
My name is Robert N. McLeod, and I own www.assistingstudents.com. My website is designed to offer free mathematics tutoring for all age groups with the targeted age group being k-9 grade school students. Furthermore, I want you to know this letter is not a scam. I strongly believe my sincerity is supported by my website, and the information that is located at the bottom of this letter.
Iâve been an unemployed teacher for the past ten months due to a stress-related medical dismissal, and I am simply requesting a donation of at least one U.S. dollar to help allow me to continue offering a free tutoring service. The reason being I donât want to place a financial burden upon those individuals who canât afford to pay a tutoring fee. Your donation will provide me with an income until I am able to acquire another full-time teaching position.
You can send your donation to my paypal.com account by clicking the donate button on my website using email@example.com as the receiving email address, or you can use Robert N. McLeod, PO Box 496, Oxon Hill MD 20750. If you have received a duplicate of this letter, I want you to know the second email will serve as a backup just in case you didnât receive the original. Any financial assistance you provide will be greatly appreciated!
Robert N. McLeod
