Dear Friend, I wish to introduce you to a very lucrative business. I worked as a product sourcing manager with an import and export company here in Cote d’Ivoire. In a business seminar I attended sometimes in 2014, I met one Alhaji, who is the president & CEO of a big cattle and dairy farm here in my country. Alhaji informed me that he needed a particular vaccine which he usually buys at USD2,000 per carton and he buys up wards of 3000 cartons every three months. 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 boss has supplied this vaccine to Alhaji for more than four times now, making a very huge profit. My problem now is that my boss …
