Hi Gadi!

It isn't a phishing E-mail. I'm just looking for a personal loan in order to 
start financing a credit card. I'm asking for 15,000 NIS max, not more. And 
it's really me - Shlomi Fish. I'm not trying to get anyone bank's account, 
just give them my account details so they can contribute money.
