The movement of the money will definitely be backed up by those documents that will be procured by the Lawyer. So I see no risks on it. See, talking about risk, I must tell you that you are 100% covered.
My aim is for us to invest this money in a profitable business.
I will advise you give me a call once you receive this mail.
My number is +44 7011121248.
Thank you for replying.
Can you also reply to me this: what about German money movement restrictions? Do they concern me?
Kindly communicate to me a little about you: have you visited other countries a lot?
