No mention of Burkina Faso so I guess it must be real! Come on guys, at least tell me about how your father was killed in a civil war or something.

Seems legit to me. Think of all the Hexaminxes you could get with 5 million USD.

"Hey, I would like to give you a massive sum of money for no reason, but to do so I can't possibly use paypal or money wiring or anything with safety measures or anonymity."

Actually Tony, his parents were probably killed coming back from the opera. This would cause him to become the modern day vigilante, PRATMAN!

Listen to this conman...

Last week I got two calls back to back days (wed and thurs) The first call the guy wanted to give me $1000. from Bank of America. I asked why and he said just because. I asked again, this time i asked "what's the catch?" Again he said "just because". I then replied to him no thank you and hung up. The second next day the same guy called and said he wanted to give me $1000. because "I had a problem getting medicine years ago". I then replied to him "are you kidding [removed] kidding me?" I then said something else to him that I can't say here.

That was the worlds dumbest conman...

P.S he never called back after I told him off.
