Hi Jane Doe,
I wrote to you before but i am having troubles accessing my yahoo account, so iam sending this email again. I was looking for jobs on the internet and came across your profile on careerbuilder and thought I would contact you since I don't have anyone else in the USA. I will be coming to the USA in about 2 weeks and would like to make friends with you. I will let you know more information about myself and I will reply back to you with some of my pictures. If you agree then message me back, I'll be waiting. Hope you don't mind. Don't reply back to this email. Make sure you message me to my personal email address email@example.com only, since i am using public email to send you this message.
by the way, I am a girl and people say i am good looking. I am 25 y.o.
Lots of kisses!
Hopefully your new girl friend
