Good Day ,

Mr. Woody Allen
Purchasing Operations Manager.
PT AMEX Corporation
I have listed products to offer?
Really? [Yes, your Amazon affiliate links. –Editor]
But that aside, what's the angle here? I mean, random spamming of companies looking to buy unspecified items? Um … perhaps inserting themselves as middle men, advertising your products as theirs, passing on the orders they get to you to fulfill, and charging their “customers” more money?
Either that, or Mr. Allen is really desperate for money.
And assuming he is, Mr. Allen, here are my answers:
- FOB EXW Boca Raton (Incoterms 2010).
- Cash up front, no credit. Payable as US dollars or an equivalent amount in gold or silver.
- Please allow four to six weeks for delivery.
- We don't talk about Flight Club (think happy thoughts—I'm expecting only four people to get this).
- Um, what part of “Please allow four to six weeks for delivery” did you not understand?
That should work.
