I have a potential customer that has made it clear that he wants a kickback. How should i deal with this situation?

This request didn't come to me directly, but through a sales representative that i am working with on what could potentially be a very big project.
I am not even considering giving this guy a kickback, because I believe it would not only be unethical, but could lead to bigger problems down the road if I establish a long term business relationship with this company.
How would ask-mefi diffuse the situation and still get the business? Right now my plan is to play dumb on the surface when the client drops those "take care of me" hints, with the subtext being that I know what he's asking, and I won't be going there, but is there a better way to handle it?
