Subject: Product supply contract
Please receive my greetings and wishes for good health, personal and professional
I am writing to ask for your kind assistance to enable me execute a very lucrative
and high profiting supply business.
I am very confident that with trust and understanding, we will execute this business to
our mutual benefit and believe that you will not let down the trust and confidence I
am willing to repose in you.
I work for an Agricultural firm 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 Alhadji 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 cattle. 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 discussed this proposal with my boss and he decided to handle the supply by himself.
We carried out a market research and discovered that we could purchase this medicine cheaper somewhere in
Europe for US$575.00 per carton. We moved a proposal to the Alhadji 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. However as fate may have it, I went to Alhadji i and
informed him that I have a foreign contact that will be willing to supply him this product at US$1,250.
per carton. He then told me he is about to place an order for 2000 cartons of this product following a
suspected outbreak of disease in his farms. I assured him that my foreign contact will be in the position
to manufacture and supply him with this vaccine at a cheaper rate of US$1,250 per carton. In fact, I told
him that my former boss usually buys the medicine from my foreign contact and 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 Alhadji. 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 Alhadji at US$1250 per carton of 12 bottles(500ml).
Kindly be notified that at no point in time should you let Alhadji know the contacts of our real source of
this product in Europe so that they wouldn' t bypass us to deal directly with them.
Anticipating your response at the earliest.
Mr Jona Koloko
