Dear sir/madam, My name is Dr Patrick Williams from the Federal Republic of Ghana, 51 years old and married with three children. I am the Director of Silver Global Security & Finance Services Limited, Ghana. I got your information from Internet and after due consideration, I decided to contact you believing that you will not disappoint me over this transaction. I have been working with this company for over sixteen years. Within this period, I have watched with meticulous precision how African Heads of State and Government functionaries have been using Silver Global Security & Finance Ltd to be moving magnitudes of funds (USD, Pounds Sterling, And French Francs) (cash) to their foreign partners. They bring in these consignments of cash and secretly declared the contents as jewelries, gold, diamonds, precious stones, and family treasures, and documents etc. Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire (dead), Gen. Sanni Abacha of Nigeria (dead), Fode Sankoy of Sierra Leone,Savimbi late President of Angola, Felix Houphet Boigny of Cote d"Ivoire (dead) Charles Taylor, Former President of Liberia please visit, website:http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/2963086.stm, Konan Bedie of Cote d"Ivoire (Abidjan) etc. All these people have consignments deposited in our office. Their foreign partners, friends and relatives are claiming most of these consignments. A lot of them are lying here unclaimed for more than two years. Nobody will ever come for them because in most cases,the Certificate of Deposit is never available to anybody except the depositors or me since most of them are dead. I have through the instrumentality of Silver Global security & Finance re-deposited some unclaimed overstayed consignment and get ready to move them through diplomatic means to Europe where it can be claimed easily by you. Since the inception of the year 2003 our company's management has changed the procedure of claiming of consignments, as soon as you are able to produce the secret information as contained in the secret file of any consignment, it will be released to you upon demand. I have finalized every arrangement to move consignment Ref-no: SGSF/0016/2004/d4 Batch-no: 300047-0010-kht containing $17.5 Million. Upon your response we will arrange on how the diplomat will convey the consignment directly to you, everything concern this deal is risk free; i have taken necessary preventive measures. (The mode sharing will be (70%-30%) all the documents that covers the total funds will be handed over to you sealed by the diplomat Best regards, Patrick williams.
