I am Vincenzo Burlesconi. I got your email today and find it very interesting. I says to Tommy Gun this is interesting, Tommy, 15,000,000,000,00 is a lot of money it can help fund our …certain businesses and Tommy says Boss, you’d be mad not to take it but remember Salvatore Cold Heart Rossini? He got that deal with those art dealers and two days later, he was in the slammer. Yeah Tommy, I says, but we got those dealers. We got them good. Salvatore Cold Heart Rossini was stupid, we’re not stupid Tommy, you saying we’re stupid? No Boss! He says, we’re smarter than Rossini. If he talks, I says, he’ll be swimming with the fishes.
That’s what we do to traitors, Mr Baker. They says one word and the next thing they know, they’re deep in the harbour attached to concrete. Their family, what do they know? Nothing. They tell their friends he’s gone away on a long, long trip. It’s better for everyone.
We also like to help Mr Baker. People come to us, we says to them – sure, we’ll help you, we’re good people. We like to help. You tell us what you need and we’ll do it, just for you. So we’ll help you, Mr Baker. We have ways of finding out who a person is, see? We know you and we know your mother and your father and your family and who we don’t know, we can find.
We got friends in our business. We got businesses in import and export, meat packing, couriers, restaurants, that coffee shop you like to go to, we got eyes everywhere. Let’s call them… associates.
Anyone who gets in our way? We has ways of getting rid of them…. People want to get in the way of your money, Mr Baker? Consider it sorted. They’re no longer a problem. We take 65% Mr Baker and consider it a deal.
Go to the pizzeria on Long Acre, London. You talk to our friend Bobby The Butcher Di Marco, you tells him Vinny Scar Face Burlesconi sent you. Bobby says to me, Vinny, you send me your friends. You tells them Bobby The Butcher Di Marco will take care of them. You got business? I sort it out for you. I says Bobby, I says, my sister married a good man.
You tell him you’re working for me and he does the rest, he has my details. He’s good man, Bobby. His brother, Luigi, not so good. You think it runs in the blood? Luigi is a bad apple, he’s not a real Di Marco. Bobby says Vinny, he says, Luigi’s a bastard. My half brother. He was dropped on his head as a baby, now he’s gone bad. He has gambling problem. He borrows mama’s money and loses it playing poker at Yoshida’s table and now he owes the Yoshida clan money! Vinny, he says, he kills Kanji Yoshida, blames it on Fonzo Pretty Boy Costello, now we’re at war with Yoshida. He crossed us and now he’s on the run, Mr Baker, you meet Luigi you tell me. He won’t be running for long.
You respect Bobby The Butcher Di Marco and he respects you, Mr Baker. One rule for him only, you look at his wife, my sister Lucia, lets just say you better hope you’re as lucky as Luigi.
You take care of our business, we take care of yours Mr Baker.
