purposes but requiring maximum confidentiality.
This is borne out of the fact that I am still in active service in the Ministry here in 
Scotland-UK.Upon your positive response to my proposal, I will provideyou with the following 
information:

* How I will introduce you/your company to the holding bank and make you the beneficiary of the 
money.
