What we want from you is the assurance that you will let us have our share when this amount of USD$75M is transferred into your account.
If this proposal satisfies you, please only your response so we can advice you on the modalities of the transaction. All modalities of the transfer have been worked out and once started will not take more than 14 working days with the absolute support of all concerned. This transaction is 100% safe.
Please treat as urgent and very confidential. God be with you as I look forward to your reply.
