A) It is practically impossible for me to carry out this business alone.B) You live in a foreign land far away from mine.

C) The amount of money involved in this transaction is EIGHT Million FIVE hundred thousand United States Dollars (US$8,500,000.00) deposited in an account with a bank here with a transferrable instruction to a foreign account only which is too much for a man of modest means like myself to handle in my country.
