Another Scam: CONCENTRATED PENTOSAN 4 EQUINE INJECTION

 OPS SCAM WATCH~

Dear friend,

How are you doing? Firstly I will like to introduce myself to you, I'm Margaret Steven from Edinburgh, United Kingdom, working as a Procurement to The Era Global Veterinary Group. I got you email contact on internet when searching so i decide to tell you about this injection. My company have been making research about an injection, it is INJECTION FOR HORSE. our company usually buy the injection from France but since 3 months now, the company we use to buy the injection in France don't have the injection anymore and we have been making enquiry about the injection in all europe countries but we can not get it. Luckily the seller in France advised me that i can get the injection from asia either Malaysia, India, Korea or Macau and since then i have been looking for someone whom i can trust to do the business with. Our company use to buy the injection at the rate of $3,300 USD PER ONE PACKET AND EACH PACKET CONTAINS 10 BOTTLES. Luckily i was told that we can get the injection from Asia at the rate of $1,600 USD per catton and they need 50 to 800 cattons and they will pay cash once we get the injection. Now, all i want is for us to do the business on trust, we share the percentage peacefully, all you have to do is to buy the injection and my company will buy from you at the rate of $3,300 USD which means we will be having a profit of $1,700 USD per each Packet. Once i confirm that you have gotten the injection, i will come down to meet you up with our company purchasing manager to buy the injection from you but you have to act as the seller of the injection because i don't want him to know where you bought the injection from so that we can still continue the business in the future.

Please kindly make enquiry about the injection fast and get back to me so that i will inform them that we have gotten the injection. The name of the injection is CONCENTRATED PENTOSAN 4 EQUINE INJECTION (10ml) 1 Packet is 10 bottles. Attached is my picture and also the picture of the Injection.

Thanks and i look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards,
Margaret Steven
