James John Smith IV is a multi-billionaire, with a finger in the pie of just about every industry known to man. In fact his wealth places him comfortably in the top ten richest men alive (although this still is a far cry from the funding first-world governments command).
His private security detail (hand picked from the military contractor organization he owns) were tipped off on a communication; an elite team has been assembled to destabilize his capitalist empire, and eventually assassinate him.
The team (the number isn't clear, but they number somewhere between a half dozen and a few dozen), apparently, is part of some clandestine, top secret organization commanded by the United States government. James John Smith IV seems to have found himself in some sort of Bond or Bourne movie by the sound of these men and women's training. No really, he thought such soldiers were limited to the movies, and not real life; supposedly the commander's kill record puts the record books to shame. The soldiers under the commander seem well funded by-and-large, and likely have some unique resources (governmental satellites, intelligence, etc) but are fairly limited on hardware (no tanks or jets, and thankfully Bond-like gadgets seem out of the equation).
The source further states that eliminating the task force will likely put an end to this effort; the US government won't want to expose themselves beyond a failure, and the US government apparently will disavowed the group on the group's failure.
An option is for James John Smith IV to expose the traitors or contact one of his numerous connections in congress, but he both fears larger-scale (and more political) retaliation, and while James John Smith IV is powerful in his own right, he's not that powerful. Plus, he'd rather not harm ties with certain people, and trying to villianize the US in such a manner would do exactly that.
James John Smith IV reasons that a trap of some sort and some nature is his best course of action. What this trap constitutes of... well he's pretty flexible in that. It could be a trap to simply kill this task force, or something else besides. The sky (and his pocketbook) is the limit!
What James John Smith IV wants to do, is to find a solution that balances assurance of stopping this assassin force, budget, and secrecy (he doesn't want to be explaining his activities in front of a court of law, nor to the press). He'd prefer a solution that didn't harm civilians, but... well he's flexible on this part.
And James John Smith IV knows that any plan has a backup plan; an ideal solution should have a backup means of stopping the force if the initial plan fails. The last thing he needs is for the plan to fail and this kill squad to go Rambo on him.
What's his best course of action?
