Bonita Kotila sent a message to Charles Koch that said:
I received an email that looked like it was genuine saying it was from you. Of course, I fear it is a scam but I sure could use the money. If you would have it in your heart to get back to me and listen to my story, I would be so very appreciative. I am not a slacker. I worked for the State of Wisconsin for 36 years but our family fell on hard times when my husband suffered an unexpected stroke after returning to college after working 38 years in a paper mill. Please help us out.
