I will destroy all the documents concerning this transaction immediately the funds are transferred to your nominated Account leaving no trace of the transfer to any place and apply for my resignation as this will enable me come over to your Country to collect my own share of the funds. I will take 50% and you will take 40% while 10% will be for any expenses both parties will come across during the process of transferring the funds to your nominated account. I hope that the sharing ratio is accepted by you. I am desperately waiting for your urgent response so that i will tell you more on what we are going to do for my bank to transfer these funds to you.
