Can You Really Make Money Trading Commodities Online? Un-Legalese-ing The FCO

Updated on September 14, 2009

This full corporate offer being valid for acceptance by the buyer within TEN (10) banking days of the date of this document.

This deal has to be fully agreed upon in two calendar weeks, or ten working days, or it's off.

DELIVERY: First Shipment to begin within TEN (10) banking days after receipt of an Acceptable Letter of Credit 100% Confirmed by a Prime World Bank. Following Shipments as per the Contract and Letter of Credit Terms and Conditions subject to Seller's Prior Approval.

What this clause states is that the first shipment has to get moving within two calendar weeks once the L/C has gone through. The L/C has to be issued by a Prime World Bank and that is definitely the key term that we're discussing in this case. Here are some of the Prime World Banks, although the recent global economic collapse may very well have un Primed some of them:

Bank of America
Bank of China
BNP Paribas
Credit Agricole
Credit Suisse
Deutsche Bank
Dresdner Bank
DZ Bank
Groupe Caisse D'Epargne
HSBC Holdings
Industrial & Commercial Bank of China
ING Group
JPMorgan Chase
Mitsubishi Tokyo Financial Group
Mizuho Holdings
Norinchukin Bank
Social Generale
Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation
UFJ Holdings
Wells Fargo

Therefore if you can only get an L/C issued by the Butcher Hollow Kentucky Bank ,Gas Er Up & Quilt Handicraft Shop, you can run to the hills... and take your moonshine with you!

PAYMENT: By Documentary Letter of Credit - Transferable, Divisible, Irrevocable, Confirmed and Revolving, unrestricted payable at sight against agreed documents.

Generally this is known as an Irrevocable L/C, but it's important to have all of the terms there. Transferable means that you can transfer the payment to someone else if you want... (why would you want... but I digress...); Divisible means that you can accept partial payments if you so want (again); Irrevocable is very important as that means that there is no way, no how, no excuses in the whole wide world why the terms of the agreement can be met and the L/C not paid out; Confirmed basically means that the Bank has made sure that the money to back up the L/C is there and it's not just some huge international check kiting scheme; and Revolving means that the deal can be executed in ways that call for more or less money to be paid out in varying intervals for extensions of the same deal as long as all the parties agree: This keeps new L/Cs from being issued if the parties want to do another deal or increase the size of this deal, etc.

The L/C will be activated on basis of the Performance Bond from the Seller in Favour of Buyer's Bank.

Again, this just states that the money has to exist before the L/C happens.

All Payment shall be made in accordance with the terms of the Buyer's L/C. The Buyer must issue the L/C directly into the Buyer's Bank and not through mandate or Broker.

Just more legalese to make sure that the Bank knows it's dealing with the right parties and not intermediaries who can flake off and leave someone else holding the bag.

      I needed to write you that very liltte word to finally say thanks the moment again on your incredible secrets you've discussed in this case. It was really remarkably open-handed with you to provide without restraint precisely what most people could possibly have marketed for an electronic book to get some profit for their own end, certainly now that you might well have done it if you wanted. Those points also served to be the great way to fully grasp that most people have a similar keenness just as my personal own to know the truth good deal more with regard to this issue. I am certain there are millions of more pleasurable sessions up front for many who read your website.

      1. Ask help from GoDaddy representatives.2. You don't have to use GoDaddy email for pearonsl or work use..It is just an additional feature. You can receive mails from Godaddy on your existing email address and you can set up email addresses for your websites not hosted in godaddy. It is really a pearonsl choice. Known email clients like Gmail will help you fight spam but at the same time get the mails you really need and want.3. Reading the content of your blog is a matter of what kind of readers you will have. Not all readers are interested in the same niche. We have different opinions and interest. So your topic about 2012 and UFO will generate readers that are interested about it too. But surely it is not a large volume of readers. Yeah sure that you can make a ebook about making money so you can make money too. But to be sucessful on selling this ebook you should know by heart how to sell and make money so people will testify that it works and it is worth buying.If you are into affiliate marketing you need a great deal of creativity and marketing ideas to pull through it. You need to invest time to build up a convincing sales page and build links pointing to your sales page, and a very effective marketing campaign. Earning money from affiliate marketing does not happen in one night.You may also want to consider creating a blog for a productive niche and put Google Ads on it. You can get Google ads by signing in Google Adsense but you should apply with a website that already have a lot of existing content and not a new one.
