Ray Adams and his Super Secret Slush Fund

Nation on the Something Awful forums has come across some more interesting emails from Ray Adams' stolen emails where he discusses payments being made, and has spotted a very interesting email among them:

Ray As this will now be coming direct from our accounts and not a bank then we will not need that No2 account we just discussed(re passwords etc).
As the new system will start from this month then it will leave £1882.99 in that account.????

Greg Gormley replied at 2.05pm today.
He says that Len will make out one of his usual payment sheets at the end of each month. On receipt in accounts Greg will code it up accordingly. He will use the 1370 coding. Greg asked me from which part of your budget he should take the money. He assumes from 'information'. I said that you would E-Mail him the detail.
I am still awaiting instructions from Vesco as to where the money will be sent. If he does not change anything before the end of the month we will send it to his usual bank account in Bulgaria.
We will start at end of January.
Many thanks

so, as we talked I am awaiting your call.
I assume I can pay him directly from my UK budget.

The deal with Pluto is $5,000
Vesco asked for £5,000. You will remember that we negotiated him down from $100,000 upfront plus a salary (engineers salary)
So you are not wrong as we have two separate deals. I can manage to squeeze the rest from somewhere.

I'll feed you with 20,000 and we'll see where we go. PS-Are you sure we are talking UK POUNDS and not US$ (Is it my bad memory according to which we pay him 5000US$ ????)

We are paying him £5,000 a month.
I can probably squeeze some out of my budget but not most of it. Until now we have used the money we hid away. There is £1,700 left of that. Thus it means that the accounts dept are not aware of our payments. Expenses etc are not a problem.

What do you think. We have to come up with 30,000 in total to get to the end of the year.
PS today we recruited Pete Tarmey, the big friend of Hannibal. We shall have to wait and see if he is truthful and loyal to us.

Going home . Alex arrives later tonight. Staying at my house.
We are now out of money to pay Vesco. The £30k that we spirited away from last year budget is exhausted. Tomorrow I rob a bank.

Paying people with money hidden away in secret accounts that their own accounting department doesn't know about?   I hope they've been declaring those payments on their tax self assesement forms otherwise they could get into big trouble with the HMRC.
