From: Mr. John Paynter Head of Investments, Standard Life International Re: Investment with S. L. International. Dear Sir/Madam It is a fact that we have not meet before neither have we had any previous business dealings, but I strongly believe that with understanding and trust we can have a successful business relationship. I am Mr. John Paynter, a principal staff with Standard Life International, Standard Life International is a business consulting firm, offering business advisory services worldwide. We are not a very big company but we have recently been confronted with the task of investing funds exceeding our capacity and have decided to seek partners to cooperate with us in investing the available funds because we have never done business of this nature. I have access to very vital information that can be used to transfer funds out of the project account to a secured account outside United Kingdom, I have the required machinery to get it done since I am still in active service, if it was possible for me to do it alone I would not have bothered soliciting for foreign support. We are brokering an investment venture on behalf of a client of our firm. This venture will involve the investment of Twenty Five Million British Pounds. We are by this letter considering entering into a partnership with you so as to allow us invest the available funds in your country and to appoint you as representatives and co-managers of the investment funds. We are ready to give you a commission of 10% of the available capital as soon as the proposed partnership between us is started. I wait your letter of intent to partner with me and kindly reply this Email: email@example.com Thank you. Mr. John Paynter Standard Life International
