    come from/came from/

    am working in Steven Born Pvt. Ltd. I was told to collect money from Bevan Michael Ltd. by my manager. So I went to the company.
    Now I wonder how to tell them that (I am from Steven Born Pvt. Ltd)
    Should I say,
    (1) I am coming from `Steven Born Pvt. Ltd' and I was told to collect money from you.
    (2) I come from `Steven Born Pvt. Ltd' ............
    (3) I am from `Steven Born Pvt. Ltd' ...........
    (4) I came from `Steven Born Pvt. Ltd' ...............
    (5) I have come from `Steven Born Pvt. Ltd' ...............

    Please help me.

    #3 is the best choice. It is direct, active and present-tense, which is how you want to be when you are collecting money.
