Dear Sir/Madam,

I am Engr. Eric Williams an American citizen working here in Iraq Rig of Crude Oil pipeline maintenance and services.

I am using my personal email to discuss with you and kindly let me know if you are interested. It does not have to affect your professional business and it does not need your traveling anywhere hence it can be done on telephone.

Actually, our department deals on servicing of Crude oil & Gas pipeline. There is one chemical call crystal Purifier which is used for the servicing and maintenance of Oil pipeline. Our company normally purchase it from one company in China but unfortunately the company we used to purchase the products has closed since six months now; consequently, our company has run short of the Crystal Purifier.

I was privileged to locate a company in Turkey that has the products (Crystal Purifier) and they sell the product at the price/rate of 100 Euros per gram while our company used to buy it from China at the rate of 250 Euros per gram. The deal now is that our purchasing manager wants me to give him the contact of the company so that he can purchase direct from the company. If I give him the contact of the company he will purchase direct from the company at the rate of 100 Euros while I have told him 250 Euros as of the price we used to buy from China.

Please I need your cooperation and understand so that you will stand as the seller of the products and you will sell the product at the rate of 250 Euros per gram while you buy from the company at the rate of 100 Euros. Both of us will have to share the profit of 150 Euros of each gram 50-50. This is going to be a long time transaction which may last for years and I know each purchase should be up to 10Kg per month. Kindly think about the proposal and reply me if you are interested.

please get back to me immediately because it is urgent.

This proposal shall be strictly between me and you.

Thanks for your audience.
