Send all replies to:email@example.com. Regards, Mr. Assad al Gaddafi,
Well! You should certainly let him know that your are quite capable of keeping his 90 mil in safekeeping for him, but as you don't know him you will require that he get it to you at his expense and in cash as an indication of his own good faith.
His own couriers can watch that way as you stuff your mattress with it.
The sad thing is that some would actually fall for this. It's got all the flags that savvy net users by now know how to recognize, but there are plenty of vulnerable folks out there, still (and that's why this crap exists). Thanks for sharing!
You must insist on cash - otherwise you may have a returned check fee to pay. Just in case, you know - I'm positive this guy is on the up and up, but I could be wrong here.
By the way, I could make good use of 10 or 20 mil. It would make a sweet charitable write off for him - you might mention that after you have all that cash filling your mattress and making it uncomfortable...
