Subject: BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY
I write to you because I am in dire need of financial assistance. I lost a substantial amount of money I invested in a company here in the UK hence I am near bankrupt. My Lawyers have advised me to declare that I am bankrupt so that my creditors will be off my back. But that is a partial solution. I need to support my family and to continue to give them the comfort they are used to.
My business takes me to South-East Asia. Presently, I cannot afford my travel expenses.
Besides, it will weaken my case if I were to file for bankruptcy. Therefore, I need someone to travel on my behalf to do the transaction.
There is an animal injection for horses, cattle and other big animals; it is called TERMACINE XP 1000. I do supply indirectly to some vetenary clinics and Diary Farms in Denmark, Netherlands and the Arabian Gulf States. The buyer purchases directly from me.
I purchase the product from a Malaysian woman at the rate of US$ 2,094 (US Dollar Two Thousand and Ninety-four) only per carton. I do the supplies to the vetenary doctor at the rate of US$4500 (Four Thousand Five hundred) only per carton.
In each month, the minimum supply is fifty (50) cartons. In a certain month the supply could be as high a hundred and fifty (150) cartons.
If you are interested or you need further clarification, I will provide you with the contact email addresses of the seller. However, you need to keep me abreast regarding any form of correspondence with the seller.
