gold.jpggold.jpg I'm sure you're sick and tired of recieving nigerian scam letters promising you a fortune in cash or gold. Since these low life schemers are wasting our time, why not give them a taste of their own medicine, only simply waste their time. The results can be quite entertaining. Check out the conversation I'm having with an overly freindly PRINCE from a small west African Nation.

Mr. Prince Kofi Donkor. would like to share this review with you:

Dear Sir/Madam. I am Prince Kofi Donkor, writing you on behalf of my community. The Takwadum community of Western Region of Ghana , West Africa . Being a mining community, we are entitled to mine locally, the mineral resources in our land as permitted by law. In doing so, our community had some quantity of 22 karat GOLD DUST/ALLURVIAL, (AU METAL) for sale. At present, we have 250 kilograms of the Gold Dust, COMMODITY: AU METAL (GOLD DUST/ALLURVIAL). QUANTITY: 250KGS. QUALITY: 22+CARATS 999.5/1000 PURITY. ORIGIN: GHANA . PAYMENT: BY SWIFT OR WIRE TRANSFER OR CASH AND CARRY. PRICE: NEGOTIABLE. COMMISSION: AS AGREED BY BOTH PARTIES. AVAILABILITY: THE PRODUCT IS NOW AVAILABLE AND READY FOR ONWARD SHIPMENT. All along we have been marketing this item through the Agents of the Government. Who charge us ten percent of the product???s value in executing the business? But recently, the King thought otherwise and decided we should seek for direct BUYERS/CUSTOMERS abroad. Being the CHIEF-OF-STAFF of the Palace, and the SECRETARY to the King, I was mandated to carry out this function. I seek your interest as our CUSTOMER/BUYER to buy the Gold Dust. Our prices are good and negotiable based on the quantity purchased. You are free to come to Ghana-West Africa and visit both the mining sites, and the King in his Palace, if you so wish. I hope this offer would interest you, then reply immediately through E-mail: or call telephone :+( 233)266577817. Looking forward to a friendly business transaction with you. Yours faithfully, Mr. Prince Kofi Donkor. Call Telephone :+( 233)266577817. E-mail:princedonkor99@aol.com

I trust you completely oh Prince. Let's do business shall we?

Dear Wayne Havrelly ,

Thanks for your mail and also thanks a lot for being interested in my offer to sale at present 250 kilograms of the Gold Dust.

Sir please I need your advice on how we can start this business.

Thanks,
Mr.Prince Kofi Donkor.
Call me as soon as you receive this mail :+( 233) 266-577-817.

Let's send it into 1-800 for Gold. I think they will give us a really good price for the Gold Dust.

Thanks,

Wayne

Wayne ,

I don't understand what you mean by 1-800? Is it to reduce the quantity of 250kgs of Gold?
Please include your private phone number on your reply for easy communication. I also want to let you know that any information you need concerning this Gold will be provided to you.

Thanks,
Mr. Prince Kofi Donkor.

Yes it is. Not sure if I can handle that much gold at one time. Worried about security. Can you provide a picture of it so I can see what we're talking about?

Thanks,

Wayne

Dear Wayne ,

|Thank you very much for your mail, but it is very important we clear some fact to enable us move ahead successfully without any hitch. The mail I sent you before asking to explain what you mean by 1.800, is because I want to know if you want me to present your request for 1kg 800grams? Because in my mail I explained that we have 250kgs avaliable. It is also important that you let me know if I am right about the 1kg 800grams of Gold Dust, is that going to be 1kg 800grams trail? Do not worry about the security because we shall provide you with certificate of origin, pro-forma invoice, certificate of ownership so for the security your safety is 100% assured.

Please include your private phone number on your reply for easy communication.

Attached to this mail is the copy of the picture you requested for your own better view and understanding.

Thanks,

Mr. Prince Kofi Donkor.

Thanks for the picture, I now have a better understanding. However, I would like to know a bit more about your background before providing my phone number and personal information. Could you tell me more about your family and provide some photographs. It would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Wayne

Thanks for your mail. I am very sorry for replying it very late, it is because of power failure here.

Concerning your question about my background, I am Prince Kofi Donkor a native of Takwadum community of Western Region of Ghana, the first son of Late Chief Nana Donkor. I am a happily married man with four children, 3 boys and 1 girl.

After the death of my late father, the Community choose me as the CHIEF-OF-STAFF of the Palace, and the SECRETARY to the King. Initially we have been marketing our product through the Agent of Government who charged us 10 percent in every product and now the King thought otherwise and decided with the Community to seek Customers /Buyers abroad and as The Secretary of the King I have to be in charge of the selling that is why I contacted you.

After our discussion with our king this Morning, I am asked to tell you to visit us here in Ghana so you can see the Gold and also our Mining site so you can see things for yourself. You are also free to test the products when you come down to Ghana.

Please I am waiting for your response.

Thanks,
Prince Donkor.

Interesting, thanks for the information.

It just so happens I work in the import export business and have been looking to open up trading channels with countries in west Africa. Do you know anyone in your country who can manufacture pixie dust? If so I'm interested in providing you with more details and information about what we're looking for. I'm planning a possible trip to the Ivory coast in the coming months and would enjoy seeing your operation.

What do you mean by manufacture pixie dust? Is it what we are discussing about coming down to Cote'Divoire. Why can't you come down to Ghana to meet me so that we can finish up with our Gold Business. You did not even give me your number. How can I know if you are interested in this business?

Thanks,
Prince Donkor.

I no longer do business with telephones, strictly computers. We work under the sea in a facility off the coast of Oregon . We find the internet works more efficiently for our purposes. Can you explain where your gold dust actually comes from? I'd like to get an idea of the quality of gold we are talking about. I can assure you if the gold is of top quality, I'm very interested. It was hard to get an idea from the tiny picture you sent me. How can I know if you are for real, if I don't know the quality of the gold? As far as the Pixie dust. It is a type of gold that used to be manufactured at a place called Pixie Land near Lincoln City. It was very high quality but the Pixieland operation closed it's doors more than a decade ago. We still use the term, Pixie dust, meaning very high quality gold. Sorry for that northwest slang. I can assure you I'm very interested.

Sincerely,
Wayne.....

And the conversation goes on........ Join us ...Let's waste their time and save a few consumers. :)

Wayne



Sincerely,

Wayne
