We are small new firm engaged in export of goods to overseas outside my country.We have won various small exports contract at one time or the other,recently we were (engaged) contracted to supply cocoa, and dried natural rubber to tyre manufacturing companies in Peru, US and Canada, which was successfully done. However, in as much as we are able to successfully carry out these supplies, we experience difficulty remitting our proceeds from the sale of these products home.This is due to the fact that the fiscal policy in my country is very stringent and not favorable. Small firms like ours are not allowed before six months of operation, to open and operate a domiciliary account in foreign currencies abroad through which we would have been able to remit our proceeds home. To this end we seek a foreign company or individuals who we can nominate as our partners to receive our payments in their business/individual accounts on our behalf and in turn send the money directly to us. Thus we are willing to pay the individual or company 10% of the total sum for their assistance. This 10% will not be a loss to us instead we hope to incorporate these costs in our future charges to our prospective customers overseas. Currently we are not able to bring back home our funds totaling USD198, 801:00 (one hundred and ninety eight thousand, eight hundred and one Dollars) in Peru, US and canada from export we just made. We therefore solicit your assistance to help remit this money by sending your contact details to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can instruct our customers to remit these money directly to your account, or alternatively the checks will be mailed to you, should incase you don't want to release your account details We also require that you send us urgently your telephone and fax numbers for proper communication prior to any transaction. We are also hoping to build a long time business relationship with you should you be interested. Once we have built our trust on you, we will continue to straighten the Business Relationship. We hope you can be of assistance to our company. We are very much aware of various scams going on all over, and as such we are assuring you that at no time you will be required to pay or transfer funds that you have not received from our customers to us. We are sincerely a legitimate entrepreneur seeking for a trustworthy foreign partner. Please get back to us at email@example.com if you are interested Looking forward to hearing from you.
