    Hardly worth the hassle if they are only going to give you 12½ million dollars, it’s often a lot more than that.

    I suppose that some people fall for it or they wouldn't keep doing it, - unless they’re only doing it for a laugh and we’re not meant to take it seriously.

    Open a post office account and ask him to put $2,000 in to prove he has cash and that his 'systems' are working.
    Did hear of a journalist who got some cash out of them using that principal, he did do a pretty thorough job though.
