This is a typical bank scam message — in this case claiming to come from Taiwan — and it asks for your help in “re-profiling” certain funds. Sounds like a sophisticated business maneuver. Unfortunately the message is from a scammer, not a bank, and the only thing to be “re-profiled” is your wallet, by transferring its contents into the scammer’s pocket.
