That two-timing bastard! He's going behind my back and offering you that deal! I kindly offered him assistance to transfer his money, with the secret plan to rip him off by having the money sent to a sham account and wiring it to my real account before the check I sent him from my fake account bounced. Peter Johnson has earned my wrath today!
tell him to transfer before arranging the transport, then take all the cash and run
... a wire transfer doesn't involve cash...
cash-money to me is small difference. then get the money, draw out the money, take the cash and run
I didn't make it!
