Can We Supply This Vaccine? Dear Friend,Before I could proceed, let me first of all introduce myself to you. My name is Mr.Malik Lara and as a matter of fact, I work with an Agricultural Firm as the Corporate Affairs Manager.
I am writing to solicit for your kind assistance to enable me execute a very lucrative Vaccine Supplying Business of great beneficial interest with you, hoping that you are not going to betray me at last, like my former Boss did. Please, there is no Obligation in this. It is absolutely a pure and genuine vaccine supplying business.
Sometime between 11th and 13th of Aug. 2010, a Business Seminar was held in San Pedro, Cote d'Ivoire, which I attended. While at the Seminar, I was opportuned to meet with the President of Armajaro Cattle & Dairy Farms WA. Ltd, Alhaji Konate Mamadou.
Alhaji Konate Mamadou is an accomplished gentleman and widely known Millionaire farmer in this part of t he region. He has farms in almost all the countries of West Africa. Above all, he is one of the biggest supplier of Cattle, Beef, Diary and it's allied products in this part of West Coast.
On knowing about my profession after the Key Note Address I presented at the Seminar, he called me for a chat at the end of the Seminar. After my discussions with him, he took me in confidence by informing me about the purchasing of a particular but very rare Medicine (Vaccine) for his Cattle, having noticed that our company can source and supply him with the needed Vaccine.
He also informed me that he buys this product at US$5,000.00 per carton, and that he mostly buys in excess of 1,000 cartons or above and mandated me to find out if my Organization could source for him, a cheaper supplier, considering the recent general drop on the price of Beef in the African market, which is affecting his business.
Back in my office, I discussed this prop osal with my Boss, who decided to handle the supply by himself. We carried out a market research and discovered that we could purchase the said medicine somewhere cheaper in Europe, at the rate of US$2,100.00 per Carton. We moved a proposal to Armajaro Farms to make the supply to them at the rate of US$4,800.00 per Carton, of which they accepted.
Owing to my role in the transaction, I had an "Agreement" with my Boss to be receiving 25% of whatever gain that is made from each supply, which he agreed. But on completion of the supply and the whole payment being received from Armajaro Cattle & Dairy Farms WA Ltd. My Boss reneged (negated) from the "Agreement" we had and have refused to give me my share of the profit. Since then, our relationship has become soured to a very sorrow state. However, I have since accepted it as one of life's experiences, as a man. Life continues.
However, as God would have it, I recently intercepted a letter of request (LPO) from Alhaji Konate Mamadou of Armajaro Cattle & Dairy Farms West Africa Limited, requesting my Boss to supply him 2,500 Cartons of the same product as soon as possible. I seized the letter and have personally contacted Alhaji Konate Mamadou to inform him that I can introduce and direct him to the producer who is ready to be supplying the product to them at the rate of US4,400.00 instead of US$4,800.00 he buys from my Boss, if he will pay in advance as he used to do before. He was very pleased and he is right now waiting to be contacted by my partner.
Now the business is this:- We shall buy the Vaccine from Europe, at the rate of US$2,100.00 par carton and sell it at US$4,400.00 to Armajaro Cattle & Dairy Farms WA Ltd, with Alhaji first making an initial deposit of 50% down payment of our quoted price, as mobilization fee.
AGREEMENT: I will be entitled to 40% of whatever profit we made from the supply, after the deduc tion of all the expenses. Thus, I am contacting you so that we can handle this plausible business together if you agree with the terms and condition stated herein.
If you are interested, I will furnish you with more details and as well, give you the contacts of the Manufacturing Company in Europe and that of Armajaro Cattle & Dairy Farms WA Ltd, the buyer.
On no account should you let the buyer know that you are not the main (direct) producer of the said medicine. Again, we should never allow them to know the contacts or the real source of the Vaccine, in Europe. Otherwise, they will bypass us from behind and go to deal with them, directly.
I will appreciate you mail me upon receipt of this Email Address; alternatively include your direct/mobile phone numbers for more detailed discussion on our next step in other to get the Ball rolling, immediately.
Yours partner in progress, Mr. Malik Lara.
