I write to solicit your assistance in a funds transfer involving Nine Hundred and Eighty Thousand United States Dollars ($980,000.00) from my bank.This fund has been stashed out of the excess profit made in year 2014 by my branch office.
I had already submitted an approved end of the year report to my head office and they will never know of this excess. I have since then, placed this amount on an Escrow Call Account without a beneficiary.Upon your response, I will configure your name on our database as holder of the Escrow Call Account. I will then guide you on how to apply to my head office for the Account Closure/ bank-to-bank remittance of the funds to your designated bank account.
I will give you further details upon your acceptance of this proposal. I also intend that you shall retain 40% of the funds for your efforts while 60% shall be for me. Kindly forward your response to indicate your interest.
Thanks for your assistance,
Standard Chartered Bank
