50% or no deal

Dear Mr. Loukas

I am pleased to say that your email finally made it through.

I have reviewed the attachment, which is an invoice for $347.90 plus VAT with a grand total of five million five hundred thousand dollars written in at the bottom, and it would appear to be in order.

I have also reviewed your outline plan of action and am tempted by your offer. There is however one small detail that we need to agree before the plan can be implemented, someone of my wide experience would be a very valuable asset to this venture and I would therefore not be prepared to accept anything less than 50% of the total funds in return for my assistance.

Please let me have your agreement to this proposal by return.

Kind Regards

Ethel Trellis (Mrs.)
