Raw Alluvial Gold Dust
This is an interesting little variation on the usual advance fee frauds and 419s.
As my day job is actually in the metals industry I can tell you what the problems is.
The price they are asking for is absurdly low, about 60% below the current market. So people will think that they're going to get a great deal.
But the important part is that inspection must take place in Ghana. Unh, unh, that's not how the market works. Any and every gold seller knows that you ship it to a neutral place, where inspection and weighing will be done by neutral people, and only then does anyone start to think about paying for it.
This will be a bait and switch operation. You pay, they wave the cargo off on the aeroplane and then, when you open the box at the other end there'll be no gold in it. Maybe sand, maybe copper powder, but definitely no gold.
