FROM CHIEF NANA MENSAH

THE 2nd OF TARKWA VILLAGE, GHANA

DEAR,SIR/MADAM,

In my villiage there is a land that belongs to a foreigner from England. The land is about 10 acres of land and was sold to the foreigner since 1978 in my country Ghana. The name of the man is Mr Ben Mark and beacuse the man is a famer the land was established in respect of cocoa farming for many years ago before Mr Ben Mark died in year 1989. He has no family in Ghana and also none of his relation was in Ghana.

After he died, we found out that there is gold in that land. I am with the documents of that land as the Chief of Tarkwa villiage,I need somebody that will sponsor for the mining and whatever comes out; you have forty percent (40%) or you mine it for six years.

It would be the pleasure of I, my cabinet members and my village to do business with you as we await your response.

BEST REGARDS,

FROM HRH NANA MENSAH

THE CHIEF OF THE VILLIAGE.

Nicely done. For the record, there is actually a gold mine in Tarkwa - a fact that lends a touch of authenticity to this tempting offer - although the place is hardly a village. We're sure that His Royal Highness NANA MENSAH can find someone willing to put in a bit of spadework among the 40-odd thousand inhabitants. ®
