ESTICO GLOBAL OIL AND GAS COMPANY is giving you an employment to be our agent in a financial transaction. My former agent (Mrs. Deborah Silvia) in U.S.A just died from “Breast Cancer” last two months ago. We do have a lot of clients in U.S.A who buy our product sand they make large payment into our late representative (Mrs. Deborah Silvia) Retirement Account. This is the account our entire customers uses in making payment of my goods purchase.
My company is looking for a representative who can receive payment from our clients for Six months, since our representative passed on, my companies are unable to collect payment from clients and base on the charges Western Union Money Transfer collect that is why we are not using western union money transfer. My company wants to take you as the company representative over there.
We received your detail from (Retirement Account) customer’s list and the company chosen to use you. You
are entitling to 10% of any payment made to your account as our agent and I will introduce all my customers all over United States to you as soon as you accept to be our representative, because we deal on Oil and Gas Products and it will do you and the company a great deal if you agree on this because our payment

Have a nice day.
