A TRADE COLLABORATION.. This is an official request for partnership and representation on behalf of my company. A trade collaboration to be very precise. I am Eric Alassane, a trader of rough gold & diamonds, precious and semi-precious gemstones. Anyway, after a careful review of your profile as well as your qualification and experience, it is logical to believe that you are capable and qualified to provide the partnership representation am requesting. To give you a better understanding of what your responsibilities will be as our representative, it is important that you understand some difficulties we are faced with presently in processing multi-million gold and diamond deals, receiving funds from clients. Firstly, there have been cases in the past of clients with delinquent payments and we were mostly incapacitated due to international boundaries to exert pressure on such clients or commence litigation in such cases. This normally results in very late payments or no payment at all from customers. So we felt that if there is an indigene that we could front as partner, our buyers will desist from taking undue advantage of our good selves. YOU WILL ONLY BE REQUIRED TO UNDERTAKE THE FOLLOWING: • Receive our gold with a representative that will be sent to accompany goods. • Meet with our buyer to complete the sales. Our buyer will obviously want to test the gold at the designated refinery and payment made after final assay at the buyer’s refinery under your close supervision. PLEASE know that all transactions are properly documented from point of origin and to international gold trade standards. We will pay you for your services based on percentage. On this we request a proposal. On behalf of myself and my company please accept my sincerest appreciation in advance for your willingness to render your services as we look forward to your prompt response to our request. Your decision to consider our proposal will be invaluable to us and we are eagerly looking forward to your prompt response.
