I hereby draft this mail to you inorder to contact you for assistance into a gold business relationship for the future benefits of both of us.
However,before i move forward i am Prince Koffi the son of King Nana Koffi of Accra Ghana,as the position of my father in our country Ghana,my father is controlling a big gold farm land and as the result of this there are a lot of golds here for sale but due to here in Africa there is no big buyers so for this reason i therefore decided to seek for a trusted foreign business partner who can assist us over there so that this gold can be sold there in abroad.
Note:As soon as we built a business relationship with you and see that you are trusted we will go ahead to extablish a gold company with you in your country which you will be the director.
We can send to you 65kg of 22 karrat through Airway bill or if you wish to come to Ghana to see things for yourself and after both of us will travel to your country with as many golds we can carry along.
I hereby look forward to hear from you for a go ahead.
