Subject: Mr.Didier Didier.
I write to solicite your assistance and support to enable me execute a very lucrative and high profiting business transaction.I work for an Ivorien based import and export firm ("a-MIC"), I work product sourcing manager.
Between the 17th -19th of may, 2002 a business seminar was held in BOUAKE Cote D'Ivoire of which I attended.While in the Seminar, I was opportuned to meet ALHAJI MUHAMMADU KANJA IBRAHIM,the President of ALHAKUMBALI DAIRY & CATTLE FARMS ETS. ALHAJI MUHAMMADU KANJA IBRAHIM is an accomplished and widely known and recognised millionaire farmer in this part of the region. He has cattle farms in different countries.On getting to know my proffesion,ALHAJI MUHAMMADU KANJA IBRAHIM informed me about the purchase of a very important cattle medicine.He informed me that he buys this product at $5,000.00 USD per carton, and that he used to buy morethan 1000 cartons quaterly.He asked me if my organisation could source for him a cheaper supplier of this medicine considering the recent trend of falls in the general price of beef in the world market which is affecting his business.
Back in my office, I discussed this proposal with my boss and he decided to handle the
supply by himself.We carried out a market research and discovered that we could purchase this medicine somewhere cheaper in EUROPE for $2,000.00 USD per carton. We moved a proposal to ALHAKUMBALI DAIRY & CATTLE FARMS ETS. to make the supply to them at $4,800.00 USD per carton of which he accepted. Owing to my role in the transaction,my boss offerred to be paying me 15% of total gain after each suply.But on the completion of the suply my boss renegated on our agreement and refused to give me my share of the profit.Since then our relationship has been at its lowest ebb. I have since accepted it as one of life experiences.
However, as God would have it, recently, I ran into ALHAJI MUHAMMADU KANJA IBRAHIM and he informed me that he would want us to urgently supply him with 1250 cartons of the same product before the end of June 2008.I used the oppurtunity to inform Alhaji that I can introduce him to the main producer of this vaccine who can supply him the product at $4,400.00 USD if he will pay in advance as he usually does. He was very pleased and has assured me that he is not going to contact my boss again for this vaccine. He is now waiting for me to link him to the producer of the vaccine. We will buy the medicine at $2,000.00 USD from EUROPE and sell at $4,400.00 USD TO ALHAJI MUHAMMADU KANJA IBRAHIM, with him making a down payment of 50% of our quoted price first.
If you are interested and capable of executing this supplies on my behalf,kindly get back to me urgently through my E-mail:email@example.com
Thanks for your cooperation.
