Subject: Good Day,

Good Day,
I am contacting you regarding our company urgent need for (VERNONIA OIL LIQUID) a raw Chemical material available in India recently. It is the major liquid material our company has been using for the production of animal injections and vaccines since 2005 and for Purification of Oil and Gas. Our company is currently buying this product at the rate of $30,000.00.USD per One (1) gallon from the Original Company supplier in USA and Brazil.

Recently, I found out that this same material is Produced and sold in India at the rate of $12000USD per 1 gallon and I do not wish to let anyone in our company to know about this because of my interest in the business. I intend to present you as a supplier in India (You will be a Middleman between our company and the local vendor in India) so that our company will not know the main-source of the material. this is just a kind of buying and selling business and all you will do is to buy the 1 gallon of the Chemical as sample and keep it ready with you, so that you will show it to our Company purchasing Manager as a sample as soon as he arrive in India for the purchasing of the chemicals and be informed that our company use to buy quantity of the chemicals and required more than 50 gallons every month and you will purchase the chemical $12000.USD and sell to our company at the rate of $30,000.USD and both of us will share the profit.

If you are willing to co-operate with me. kindly send your reply to my Direct E-mail:([email protected]) I will send you our Company director's contact detail then you will send him an offer and as soon as he indicate interest to buy, you will let him know the stock is ready and you are willing to supply as many as required at a reduced price per gallon. I will also forward you the contact detail of the dealer where you will get the material in India. the dealer selling price in India is $12000.USD per 1 gallon and then all profits accrued would be shared between you and me, after deduction of all your expenses, etc. This would be a long term business relationship between you and our company.

NOTE, I am Mr. Steven Walter, a Citizen of Manchester City, England, and Im working here in SEGWAY COMPANY as a Production Manager.

Awaiting your reply immediately you receive this mail.

With best wishes,
Mr. Steven Walter
