Email body

Greetings,

Investors are providing loan funding to anyone who has a good
business/project in need of loan at an interest rate annually
with minimal documents required to conclude funding modalities.

I am a retired banker, now consulting for investors.

Also, a finders fee is paid to anyone who introduces a project
owner for finance and we are ready to fund any project no matter
the amount.

Write me on my personal email: vp@celerionpartners.com
I anticipate your reply

Sincerely
Thompson
