Dear Sir, Thank you once again,I have a new proposal for our gold business,in this situation,i have an investor who was in stock market and wants to divert some of his funds to trade in gold and since you and i are in the gold business what i have decided to do is for us to go into partnership. What i mean by this is that,the investor is ready to invest his money to buy the gold and i am ready to source for the gold,you and your partner in AMERICA or EUROPE only will sale the gold there in the US or EUROPE when we ship to you.So this is how the partnership will operate . Me and the investor will come as a team and you and your partner in US will come as a team and we will form partnership and sign a partnership agreement to work as one body.What the investor wants to do is ,if your partner have an account, a COMPANY'S ACCOUNT,the investor will issue a cheque or transfer money for 100kg of gold for a start and send the cheque to your partner to pay into his account i will source for the gold here,then the seller will send his SPA to you and your partner to sign.When the SPA is signed,your partner will now transfer the money to seller's account and seller will ship the gold to you and the partner to sale in US.After selling,the profit will be shared between us that is the investor 60%, me 10%,you and your partner will have 30%.Then the second shipment will be 200kg on monthly basis for 2 years. This is the proposal from the investor,please if you and your partner have accepted this proposal kindly let me know so we can start drafting the partnership agreement. Regards, Williams NEW PROPOSAL FOR GOLD BUSINESS.
