Dear Friend, I know this email must have come to you as a surprise because we have never met before and what Iâm about to discuss with you here might sound very apprehensive , it is just an opportunity that come across oneâs way in a life time and I feel I should make use of it. My name is Ms. JULIAN BROOKS, Iâm a chartered secretary and I work for British company called ROYAL COMMERCIAL HOLDINGS based in old Windsor Berkshire, United Kingdom. This company is a contractor to the United Nations (UN) and was recently awarded a contract to supply some vaccines used on animals for related diseases. Presently, these vaccines are very expensive here in the United Kingdom but relatively very cheap from a source in Malaysia . The price of the vaccines in United Kingdom is two to three times more than the price in Malaysia according to my findings. If my proposal sounds interesting to you, then this is what you have to: You will buy the vaccines from the source which I will provide you with the contact details and sell to my company through my boss whom I will also give you his contact details too. You should be prepared to share whatever the amount of profit you make with me You should not in anyway disclose the cheap source of this product that I will give to you to my company or disclose my company to the source in Malaysia . I want you to know that I demand from you in totality assurance and sincerity in this mutual beneficiary business opportunity. A friend of mine have done such a business before but was betrayed at the end and never got her share of the profit till now and I donât want such to happen to me. I do not have any particular person in mind I just needed somebody I can trust to enable me make use of this opportunity to make some extra money since my salary is low compared to the cost of living here in the United Kingdom. Lastly, if you wish to take up this offer, send your reply to email@example.com and I will reply you with all the contact details of the source in Malaysia and that of my boss whom you will contact and send your quotation to when I must have given you the price to quote and my boss will then issue you an LPO (Legal Purchasing Order) which will permit you to enter into contractual agreement with my company.I will also give the price of the vaccines in United Kingdom for you to compare the price and see for yourself.Please should you find my proposal offensive or against your personal integrity, I advice you disregard this mail.
