Greetings,
          I hope this finds you well. I need a favor from you.
I need to get an Amazon Gift Card for my Nephew, It’s his birthday but I can’t do this now because I’m currently out of town. Can you get it from any store around you? I’ll pay back as soon as I get back. Kindly let me know if you can handle this.
Thanks
Gene.
