Hello, My name is Mr Claudio Bruni. I work with the Standard Chartered Bank of ITALY as the Regional manager, Venezia Branch, in the Western Region of Italy. I am 48 years old with three kids. I have packaged a transaction that will be of mutual benefit to us. As the branch manager of Standard Chartered Bank of Italy, it is my duty to send a financial report to my head office in the capital city, Accra, at the end of each financial year. Following the release of the second quarter financial report, ending June 2007, I discovered that my branch made Four Million, Five Hundred and Twenty Thousand United States Dollars ($4,520,000.00); from the transactions accruing to the account of the Inland Revenue Service (IRS). This was not detected by the renowned auditors from my head office. I have moved the funds into what the bank call Escrow Call Account with no beneficiary. Meanwhile as you know I can not be directly connected to this money for obvious reasons. So my contacting you is to assist me receive the funds in your bank account in your country; which I know is possible if you liaise properly with me and get 30% of the total funds as your benefit. The transfer would be made via swift and it will be a Bank-to-Bank wired transfer. All I need from you is to stand claim as the original depositor of this fund. I will compute your particulars as the person who made the deposit in my branch, so that my head office will immediately order the transfer to your designated bank Account. Call or mail me if you think we can work together, on +39-331-271-8929 And Email:email@example.com Thanks for your understanding and co-operation. Yours truly, Mr. CLAUDIO BRUNI. Branch manager (S C B)
