    Once you've contacted one of the debt help charities, the people you owe money to have to stop changing you for at least 30 days. Why not give you and your family a harassment-free holiday season by getting started now?

    Not very ethical to publish somebody's private email without permission.

    Unless it's your email, you have no evidence that it was published without permission. Whoever wrote it seems keen that their story gets some publicity in order to encourage others in similar situations to seek help.

    As Martin wrote, "As I haven’t been able to ask the sender’s permission, I’m keeping it anonymous".

    It's at least arguable that the anonymous emailer strongly supports Martin's objective in publishing the unpublished copyrighted work and the help it will provide to any others who act on this to seek help and maybe have a better holiday and new year season as a result.

    Best to leave it to the person who sent the email to complain, if they want to. I think that's very unlikely to happen. Much more likely in my opinion would be them sending another email thanking Martin for using their first one to encourage others to take action to help themselves.
