    Dear Kazuko,

    I trust this e-mail finds you well, I need you to set up a bank transfer payment, do you have few minutes to process the transaction today.

    I will send you the beneficiary banking details upon request, can you please send the most recent financial report at your earliest convenience.

    Sincerely,
