Dear Sir, BUSINESS LOAN It is my pleasure to introduce M.M Lester & Associates, London, United Kingdom to your prestigious company. We are one of the fast growing investment managers and alternative financial resource providers for various business purposes. We serve as link between a host of Private Investors and you. We have in partnership with our client, designed an Alternative Resource Program called Private Investment and Financial Resource Program(PIFRP) in support of the efforts by the governments of the United States of America, United Kingdom, Middle East ,Germany and other continents in combating the surging rise in unemployment across both nations. Although the recent economic meltdown, is gradually fading out, but its impact are still felt by many privately owned businesses that have had to cut down on staff or closed down due to non availability of loan facilities from banks or the government. Our client is a sixt-nine years old widow; a high profiled business woman; a philanthroper and an anonymous private investor. She has to her credit over the years purchased quite an appreciable number of performing Mortgage Notes (Cash Flow Notes), Contract for Deeds and Promissory Notes with good title and clear profile. She is also a subscriber of stocks/bonds in major Oil Companies in West Texas, Bolsa Chica, California, Colorado, Arkansas all in the United States and also in other companies around Europe, Africa and the Middle East. And her available funding capitalization is in excess of Two Hundred Million United States Dollars. Having this much funds at her disposal and also considering the deteriorating state of the global economy, where small and medium scale businesses are closing down and laying off staff,(thus increasing the unemployment rate) due to none availability of loan facilities or funding from financial institutions or the government, she has decided to make available, a clear funding for a few worthy and interested small and medium scale business owners/ private individuals to a maximum of one Hundred Million USD and minimum of Ten Thousand USD at a minimal one-figure interest rate for up to fourty years, with no particular preference for the type of business or payment of due-diligence or any kind of fees whatsoever. Funding/Loan will be approved within 24hrs after due verifications and evaluation of your funding request by our Review Committee. Therefore we are seeking your participation in this program, thus save, re-finance, payoff previous loans, settle all pending financial commitments,expand your business, hire more staff and so on. This funding process requires nothing from you other than your honesty to understand the need to create more job opportunity for the unemployed. It is our belief that you understand these benefits and will respond to this email immediately while we will be happy to provide you further information and directives on how to get this business loan/ funding. This is absolutely legitimate and we have received quite an out standing response from similar companies. We will be glad to provide further information at your request. Thank you faithfully Matt K.
