Att: Friend,
My name is Mr.Koffie Duah, an investment advisor  to the former Minister of Mines  of Republic of Guinea. Following the sudden death of the President Lansana Conte of Guinea  last two months, the Army took over power and confiscated the late president's entire family asset , including the assets of all the Ministers that served under the late President in the country.
My boss,the Minister of Mines is being detained in Prison by the Army.Before the detention of the Minister,I handled on his behalf  the depositing of some quantity of Gold and Diamonds in a security deposit company outside the country.The Minister's wife,has given me the mandate  to get foreign buyers that would buy the gold and diamond at considerably reduced price.  The family want to sell off the gold and diamonds to raise emergency funds for the upkeep of the family, as the family is  presently in dire financial situation since the Army confiscated the family assets and detained the family breadwinner.
I am now writting to seek  _expression_ of interest from you . You stand to make good money from this business either as direct buyer or as a broker to get buyers.
If you are interested, kindly reply  immediately .
God Bless you.
Mr. Koffie Duah
