Dear Sir, I am writing this letter out of a genuine desperation to find a reliable partner in the below outlined transaction. I have been unjustly treated by my partner in a transaction so, I seek your help, attention and genuine co-operation to our mutual benefit and 1 believe that you will not let down the trust and confidence 1 am about to repose on you. I am Mr. Lee Davidoff from Hong Kong (Asia) and for the past ten years, I have been working in a public Relations firm that pays me about seven hundred dollars each month. On the 20th of January, 2006 our company made a very big financial breakthrough when we made contact with Mr. Van D. Dirk and began to supply him his cow and pig vaccine named LIM KXT COW VACCINE. Van D. Dirk is the President of Dirk GROUP OF COMPANIES He is a millionaire farmer with cattle farms in most parts of the world, and a new one located at SOUTH AFRICA Moreover, he is one the biggest supplier of cattle beef and other dairy products to the whole of Europe, Africa and Asia. He had informed us about the huge amount of money he spends on the purchase of a particular but very important cattle medicine. Precisely, he buys US$ 5,000 per carton. He asked if our organization can source for a cheaper supplier. We did market research and discovered that we can buy these vaccines in china for US$2,000 per carton. We moved a proposal to Dirk GROUP of Companies, to supply him at US$4,500 per carton, which they accepted and have subsequently made a few supplies and our company is doing fine. I, however requested to my boss for an increase in our salary. He was so upset that he sacked me without benefits after ten years of dedicated workmanship. I was so desperate that I made contact with the Dirk GROUP of COMPANIES farms and informed MR Dirk that I have a foreign contact that will be willing to supply him this same products at US$4,200. per carton. MR DIRK in return confirmed to me that he is about to place order for one thousand cartons following a suspected outbreak of disease in his farms. I assured MR DIRK that my foreign contact will be in the position to manufacture and supply to him, infact I convinced him that my former boss usually buy from my foreign contact and that is why he sales to him at a higher price.I INFORMED MR DIRK THAT HE WILL HAVE TO PAY CASH IN ADVANCE BEFORE MY FOREIGN CONTACT WILL SUPPLY TO HIM. For the moment he has stopped all contact with my boss. Please consider on how to handle this profitable Project and kindly contact me immediately on my Email for details and negotiations as regards my commission. However, I will insist that my commission will be 20% of the total profit. Note: We will buy one thousand cartons at US$2,000. We sell to them at US$4,200; our client pays cash before lifting of the goods. (They must not know our purchase point in Europe). Thanks and God bless you. Mr. Lee Davidoff.
