Yes, you read that right, he wanted to send me $1000 to help me in my time of need. I was so astounded that I told him he’d made a mistake but he quickly informed me that he indeed wanted to send me the money because he was a former crack addict who’d robbed many homes and he wanted to “pay it forward” by helping me! And he refused my offer to pay him back when I was able to! My heart was filled by this man I never met and subsequently lost touch with.
