I just got this email:
I’m having some financial hard times, so three and a half million dollars could really help me. He’s probably just using the term “your country” to seem personal - he wants the discussion to be personal, about me and him - rather than macroeconomic. I get the impression that he has my best interests at heart.
He also seems like a rather moral character. He says the transaction will have “nothing to do with illicit materials”. I’m glad; I wouldn’t want to do anything that would harm the integrity of my country. He also isn’t one for “kidding around”, indicating that he wants the gravity of this transaction to be taken seriously.
What are your thoughts? I’m thinking of going for it.
