SALES OF VALUABLE HISTORICAL AFRICAN MASKS FOR GALLERIES AND MESEUMS. TEL: 002379348780 E:MAIL firstname.lastname@example.org DATE: 08-11-06 REQUEST FOR PARTNERSHIP ATTENTION SIR/ MADAM, THE LOCAL MANYU COMMUNITY OF THE SOUTH WEST PROVINCE, REPUBLIC OF CAMEROON WEST AFRICA, IS WILLING TO SELL SOME OF ITS IMPORTANT ARTIFACTS OF ANCIENT AFRICAN TRADITIONAL/ CULTURAL MASKS OF HIGH VALUE AND HISTORICAL MEANINGS. THE LOCAL TRADITIONAL COUNCIL IS READY TO SELL ONE MASK AT THE RATE OF 2.000.000FRS CFA (3000EURO) AND WHICH CAN LATER BE SOLD TO WESTERN PARTNERS (EUROPE, AMERICA AND ASIA) AT THE COST OF NOT LESS THAN 15.000EUR PER MASK. I HAVE ALREADY MADE SOME CONTACTS TO TWO MESEUM OWNERS IN EUROPE AND CANADA RESPECTIVELY WHO ARE READY TO BUY THESE VALUABLES AT THE RATE OF 15,000EUR BUT ARE NOT WILLING TO DEAL DIRECTLY WITH THE LOCAL AUTHOURITY CONCERNED, BUT WILL RATHER PREFER TO DEAL WITH WESTERN PARTNERS. BEFORE THE SALES OF THIS MASKS, TRADITIONAL RITES OR CEREMONY WILL BE PERFORMED TO BEG THE AFRICAN gODS TO ACCEPT THE RELEASE OF THESE VITAL MEANINGFUL VALUABLES. THIS MAKES IT DIFFICULT SOMETIMES FOR FOREIGN BUYERS TO DEAL DIRECTLY WITH THE PRIMITIVE LOCAL AUTHOURITIES. SO THEY PREFER TO BUY FROM EUROPE, AMERICA AND ASIA AT A HIGHER PRICE. RATHER THAN BUYING FROM THE LOCAL AUTHOURITIES AT A CHEAPER RATE BECAUSE OF THE STRESS INVOLVED IN PERFORMING AND FINANCING THE TRADITIONAL RITUALS AND RITES. WHAT I WOULD ADVICE YOU TO DO IS TO BUY THESE MASKS AT A CHEAPER RATE FROM THE LOCAL AUTHOURITIES AND LATER SELL AT A HIGHER RATE TO INTERESTED WESTERN PARTNERS WHOSE CONTACTS I ALREADY HAVE. YOU WILL MAKE A GOOD PROFIT. YOU WILL USE ONE AFRICAN WHO WILL FACE THE LOCAL COUNCIL OR COMMUNITY FOR THE PURCHASE ON YOUR BEHALF. THIS WILL FACILITATE ALL THE PROCEDURES AND WILL ENHANCE SMOOTH TRANSACTION BECAUSE HE TOO UNDERSTANDS THE PEOPLE AND THEIR CULTURE. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS TRANSACTION, PLEASE CONTACT OUR FOREIGN REPRESENTATIVE MR INONI E. 00491734269644 E.MAIL : email@example.com THANKS MR T. KAMARA JR. P:S I WILL SEND TO YOU SOME SAMPLES PHOTOS AND HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF THE MASKS.
