Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to assist you.

Yes you can do this.

There are a number of third party tools available.

You can use this site here for free
http://www.sendanonymousemail.net/

This allows you to create an anonymous email account:

You could also just create an account through any free email service for the purpose of not using your real.

If you do wish to actually email back and forth with person than I would suggest you just create a gmail or yahoo account with a fake name and no connection to you or your real account and use that.

Thanks,
Chris

can you do the same thing with a text

Expert:  Chris L. replied 3 years ago.
You mean with a text from a mobile phone?

There are websites for that as well such as this:

I am not an expert in mobile phones however so I cannot say how good that is, you may want to ask about that in the cell phone category just to confirm the best way to do it.

The information I gave you for email though is good and I have used those methods before.

Thank yuo,
Chris
