From: Dr. Robert Allen. Accra-Ghana. Good Day, I do hope this letter will not come to you as a surprise; it was borne out of my desire to share a business relationship with you. My name is Dr. Robert Allen, a Ghana national married with a wife and two children. I work as an Administrative Manager with STANDARD SECURITY AND SERVICES LTD. in Accra-Ghana. I got the information concerning you from where I was searching for a reliable person. I decided to contact you believing that by the grace of God, you will accept to be my partner in this business.I joined the services of this company in 1991 as Office assistance to this very level of Administrative Manager. I have been working with this company Within this periodI have watched with meticulous precision how African Heads of States government functionaries have been using STANDARD SECURITIES to move huge sums of money USD, Pound sterling, French France (Cash) to their foreign partners. They bring in these consignments of money cash and secretly declare the contents as jewelries, gold, diamond precious stones, family treasure, documents etc. Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire, Foday Sankoh of Siera Leone. etc. All these people have hundreds of consignments deposited with STANDARD SECURITIES. Their foreign partners, friends and relatives, are claiming most of these consignments. A lot of them are lying here unclaimed for as much as 15 yrs. No body may ever come for them because in most cases, the documents of deposit are never available to any body except the depositors most of them dead. Since the inception of the 2000 millennium, STANDARD SECURITIES MANAGEMENT changed the procedure of claims of consignments. As soon as you are able to produce all the secret information as contained in the secret file of any consignment, it will be released to you upon demand. This is why I am soliciting for your co-operation and assistance since these consignments were deposited with several names and codes. 35 have been claimed in the past six months. I have finished every arrangement for you to come and claim consignment NO.988 containing USD 20M. I will supply you with all the information and documents. You will then deal directly with the management which I am the head. The procedure is simple:You will apply officially to the Director of Operations of STANDARD SECURITIES for the release of consignment No. 988. They will demand for some documents and secret codes. which I will supply you with every detailed information as soon as you confirm the reception of this proposal. In your reply, include your private telephone number so that I can call you for further explanation and directives on the procedure. Sincerely Yours, Dr. Robert Allen.
