Mario Valentino unknown- claims to be affiliated with Vanguard Financial Services contacted me through Match.com- created a very elaborate story involving working for Vanguard Financial services Internet
This man contacted me through Match.com and has been writing to me for approximately one month. He told me he is a fund manager with Vanguard Financial Services and supposedly flies all over the world investing money for his clients. He concocted a story involving the death of his mother. She made him "promise to retire early and find a woman to love" on her deathbed- he is very romantic and also uses scripture quotes in his emails... he has asked me to send him my name and address... wasn't sure how he could use this information without having a SS# or bank account info, but apparently was planning to make me a "wire mule" which I found out about when I called Vanguard to see if he was employed there.
Below is an excerpt of one of his emails:
Darling, yesterday was the day we had everything rounded up. The memorandum was given to the directors from Vanguard stating how the fund disbursement should be done through the Vanguard Magellan share purchase arrangement in the name of the partners. [continued below]....
..... As you know, your name represents me in the partnership so one of our director's was wise or should I say stupid enough to ask the question about the only female partner not being present. The answer came from my client, the investor. He told them that you can see that she is based in the States as her address shows. He also told them that she left back to the States and requested that she can be well represented by her fund manager Mr.Mario Valentino as she was already an investor with Vanguard international.
> The total transaction was worth 2, 000,000 (Two Million) Barrel of raw crude at the sum of $73 Dollars Per Barrel. That makes the total transaction sum to be $146,000,000 (One Hundred and forty Six million) Dollars. After the total deductions of transaction subsidy, investors deposit commitment, government settlement and other miscellaneous expense which was negotiated and drafted by me as part of the reason why I was invited in the team, the total offshore fund remittance by the buyer to the Vanguard account rounded up to the sum of $81,000,000.00 (Eighty One million ) Dollars. From this total transaction sum, I am only entitled to 10% of the money as the financial broker and estimate consultant and fund receiving partnership body (which in this case Vanguard international)
> Let me cut the long story short as it may take me more 50 pages to explain all this. The summary of the transaction is that when the company receive this money, they will make purchase of Magellan shares on ground for trade on our behalf on the percentage stipulated in the memorandum. What this means is that the company will be purchasing the value of $8,100,000 (Eight Million and One hundred Thousand) Dollars worth of Vanguard Magellan capital shares in your name as the transaction deed stipulated. This amount will acquire the total of 128,571 Vanguard Magellan capital shares in your name. Being a direct share buy, the company will contact you to provide them information required for the issuance of the investors’ certificate. All you will need to do is to reconfirm for them the information they already have in the memorandum. I know this may be sounding a bit complex but I want you to know that I am still around to handle this and that there is
> nothing illegal in this transaction. This transaction is still 100% legitimate so do not let the complex nature of my explanation confuse you.
> Honey, I will need to stay here till early next week when the whole fund must have been confirmed by my office in the Vanguard offshore account. When the share purchase is completed, we will apply for the resell of the shares from the company which I know most of my partners will be willing to buy at once. Once we sell of the Vanguard shares and all the other shares I will be raking up about $11,000,000.00(eleven million dollars) Once the shares are sold, the fund will be released in your name since the share was on your name. The moment you have confirmed the money, I will then fly down to States for a new life with you. It will start from having a long discussion on where we will live, where we will buy the new house, starts a new business and settle down in our world and get old together. > Lots of special hugs & kisses---from your beloved husband to be, soon! ha ha ha
