If you're dumb enough to send money through the mail, to unknown persons, let alone that it was cash, you deserve to get taken!

I think it is ridiculous too but it is a scam that many people fall for and have been for a long time. George Anthony, former cop and the father of Casey Anthony( Florida "tot mom" ) fell for the very same scam.

Some people have made it a sport to string these particular scam artists along( promising monies never to come), posting their progress on the internet, in some cases. Is a noble sport.
