I am George Stone, I got your contact during an intensive search for a foreign counterpart that could join me in a lucrative trade. I work as a product sourcing and marketing manager in an Australian based consulting firm that provides a wide range of products and services. My company is active around the world through numerous subsidiaries and partnership with many companies.
During a business seminar held in London late 2008, I was opportune to meet with one Dr. Anderson Bota an accomplished well known, highly recognized millionaire farmer and one of the greatest suppliers of cattle, beef and other Dairy products. He is the CEO of Botalo cattle farms South Africa Ltd.
During our conversation Dr. Arthur Bota confided and disclosed the purchase of a very important medical product for his animal husbandry. Thus he told me that he was buying from an Australian supplier in the past at the rate of $5,000.00 (Five Thousand US Dollars) per carton. He usually buys between 300 to 450 cartons every 3 months. Dr Bota gave me a task of sourcing for a cheaper supplier of Amaccineclox M1 vaccines due to the recent trend of falls in the general price of beef in the world market which affected his business.
Thereafter I found a producer of this same product in Malaysia that sells at $2,000 per carton, while it could be resold to Botalo farms at the rate of $4,100.00 per carton. This proposal was put forward and was accepted to the management of Batola Farms. They gave a local purchase order to supply 400 cartons of this product within 21 days.
I hereby solicit your partnership in this deal as it would be of great risk to me to put Botalo farms in direct contact with the manufacturer in Malaysia as I would be sidetracked in the deal. I will appreciate it if you could join me in this lucrative business so as to enable me introduce you to Batola farms as a supplier of Amaccineclox M1 vaccines.
If we buy at $2000 and supply at $4,100, we will be making a profit of $2,100 per carton and I’ll be glad to have 30% of the profit while you will have 70%.
Finally, be informed that if you could handle this transaction without an iota of betrayal then we will be making a good fortune out of this. Kindly indicate your interest through this email address: email@example.com
