Take a seat and motion for him to sit across from us. "I'm in a delicate situation, Gerald. Your uncle's spirit assisted me with a problem, and in turn, I helped him find his final peace. He's on his way towards heaven, or enlightenment, nirvana, whatever may be down that path for him.
In the process of our mutual efforts to help each other, I've come into the possession of a large building in the financial district, as well as the money that's to come from it's occupants. Most of which are . . . closer to your complexion than my own. Now, I'd like for these people to continue to pay their dues. Of course, when they get a look at me, I don't think they'll fully support the idea. That is where you come in. You'd be the face of this operation, working for me to collect debts and acting as an intermediary between them and me. If they have a question, a complaint, they tell you, and you tell me. Then I deal with it. You make collections, and deliver them to me. Anything happens, and you come to me. For this, you'll be paid a very handsome salary, as well as being entered into my protection for anything else you'd be interested in doing, with my approval of course. You'll also be furnished with an apartment in the building, something a bit more . . . welcoming than this.
Keep in mind, I'm doing this as a favor on word from your dear departed uncle, and this offer will no longer be available once I leave here." Take out a fold of bills. If he accepts, hand him a few and tell him to get a haircut and a nice suit.
