Dear sir/madam, My name is Mr. John Peterson the CEO of JPETERSON HOLDINGS, London UK and i require your partnership representation for our North American customers to help me receive payment with any of your secured medium of payment (SMP) account type( which could be either of Home Equity Line Of Credit HELOC or LOC Account or An Attorney Trust Account) if you own any of these two account specification. i am willing to offer you 10% for your service for whatever amount that is received by you through this account. I sell my products to my customers in U.S.A and Canada which i find it very difficult in receiving my payments from them in the past as they have requested such secured medium of payment(SMP) I have had a lot of experiences in the past when they were paying through checks and money orders. We now accepted that all payments should be made by swift wire transfer into a home equity line of credit account in the United Sates. The reason why they requested for such account is that the funds will be more secured into such account and the IRS will never question any amount of money coming in or going out of the account. I need you to be my representative in the United States if you own such account. I will offer you 10% of any of my payment that passed through your home equity line of credit account as i have earlier stated. You will require to make no expense during the course of this transaction. This transaction is 100% legal and does not relate to money laundering and is free from Drug money. The amount of money depends on the volume of facilities sold which ranges from US$250,000-US$5 Million and above depending on the limit of your account. I will send you detail of the modalities of this transaction as soon as i hear from you. I will forward a copy of my identification to you as we progress with this transaction.,we are of the opinion that the ability to consolidate payments from North America will eradicate delays due to inter-continental monetary transaction between Asia and North America. Hence i am seeking and requesting for your partnership and assistance to be my executive and regional company representative there in the USA and i will provide the necessary authorization to our customers to get in touch with with you once you have accepted my request and probably have your details in our file here and we are most inclined to commence talks as soon as possible. Your consideration of our request is highly anticipated and we look forward to your prompt response and acceptance. Sincerely, Mr.John Peterson,(CEO) Email:email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
