This came in the mail earlier today. It seems that Kona needs assistance in handling some gold sales and investing the proceeds. I might be able to help...
Dearest,Normally, you can scan these and look for a dollar amount and then quickly dispatch them, but this one made you do the math:
Am writing you with a great honour and I hope my letter will be a surprise to you since we have not meet personally. I saw your contact from the my father's address book. This gives me the courage and assurance that you are one of my father's foreign partners.
My name is Kona Outara a student of 22years old. I inherited 250 kilos of 22carat gold dust from my late father who was a reputable gold dealer in bouake northern part of ivory coast. the gold was deposited in a security company in belgium,and i have every necessary document that confirmed this said deposit,and also i have contacted the security company several times and they assure me of the safety of the gold.
Since i don't have any means to travel down to belgium,and i don't have any document to travel down to belgium, more over am too young to handle this gold for my security, i need your urgent assistance to enable me to continue my education in your country.
I am soliciting for your partnership in order to sale and invest the money in several fields especially real estate management.
I am also using this opportunity to inform you that I have no concepts of investment I would need your suggestions and assistance to sale and manage the money.
Waiting for a favourable reply.
That seems to be the standard amount - just under $10 million.
