What an exciting opportunity!

HOWEVER

It's possible that Mr. Leech is not on the up and up. I know, that sounds rude but this is the '90s after all and sometimes people speak mistruths. I'd hate to see you get taken by some sort of Flim Flam Man.

On the other hand, you can't pass up $8 Million in cash money. You'd look a fool! Why don't you send your personal and banking information to me and then I will contact Mr. Leech on your behalf. That way I assume the risk.

You do have a point, B. And we all know how this is the present and not the past where people were always honest and good and kind...but I think my money's safer in the Utah housing market.

Now if I could only afford the prices. They're outrageous!

I understand why you are hesitant, but...

I think you actually have some room to negotiate with this guy. I mean 50/50? He can't do it without you, so I think you should be able to get at least 70/30.

Don't write him off just because he's trying to split it down the middle.

Work with him.

Nevermind. I realized who b. is...and remembered he posted on my blog.

and I should point out there's a difference between the B that is a blogger and b, my codename for the guy I've been dating and breaking up with a lot for the past 8 months.
