I am writing this letter in other to inform you of a business that
will benefit both of us immensely as long as you will make up your
mind to co-operate accordingly but before going into details, I want
you to take note that this business is not a child’s play or something
to toy with rather it is a business that will give us the opportunity
to make lots of money.
I have been unjustly treated by my partner in a transaction so, I seek
your help, attention and genuine co-operation to our mutual benefit
and I believe that you will not let down the trust and confidence I am
about to repose on you. I have been working in an import and export
firm that pays me about two hundred dollars per month for the past ten
I worked with this company as the product sourcing manager.
Between the 17th – 19th of Feb., 2014 a seminar was held in Bouake,
Cote d’Ivoire of which I attended. While in the Seminar, I was
opportuned to meet one Alhadji who introduced himself to me as the
president and CEO of his company. This Alhaji is an accomplished and
well known millionaire farmer in this region.
Apart from his farms here in Abidjan, he has cattle farms in MALI,
SENEGAL, GUINEA, BURKINA FASO and CHAD. Above all, he is one of the
greatest suppliers of cattle, beef and
other dairy products in this part of the West Coast.
On knowing my profession, he took me into confidence by informing me
about the purchase of a particular but very rare medicine for his
He informed me about the huge amount of money he spends purchasing a
particular cattle medicine. Precisely, he pays US$2,000 per carton.
He asked if my organization can source for a cheaper supplier for him.
Back in my office, I carried out a market research and discovered that
we could purchase this medicine cheaper somewhere in Europe for
US$575.00 per carton.
I discussed this proposal with my boss and he decided to handle the
supply by himself.
We moved a proposal to the Alhaji to supply him with this vaccine at
US$1,500.00 per carton which he accepted. My company made a very big
financial breakthrough when we started
supplying this vaccine to this wealthy farmer.
As these supplies progressed my boss made huge profit from the
contract.I requested for an increase in my salary and my commission
but my boss was so upset at my request that he sacked me without
benefits after ten years of dedicated service thereby reneged on our
I have since accepted it as one of life experiences. I was so
desperate that I went to Alhaji and informed him that I have a foreign
contact that will be willing to supply him this same product at
US$1,250. per carton. Alhaji in turn, confided in me that he is about
to place order for 3500 cartons of this same medicine following a
suspected outbreak of disease in his farms.I assured Alhaji that my
foreign contact will be in the position to manufacture and supply to
him this vaccine at a company rate of US$1,250 per carton. In fact, I
convinced Alhaji that my former boss usually buys the medicine from my
and that is why he sells to him at a higher price.
CONSEQUENTLY,I INFORMED HIM THAT HE WILL HAVE TO PAY CASH IN ADVANCE
BEFORE MY FOREIGN CONTACT WILL SUPPLY THIS VACCINE TO HIM.
Right now, he has stopped all communications with my boss.
I therefore wish to present you as my foreign contact so that you can
handle the supplies to the Alhaji. If you can handle the contract,
kindly contact me immediately for details and negotiations on what is
going to be my commission. We will get the medicine from the producers
at US$575 and supply the Alhaji at US$1250 per carton of 12
