Same music, just a different orchestra. These guys only want $55.00 (to start); you can bet your life that if any sucker bites, there will be endless requests for additional funds, as much as they can milk out of their victim.
And of course, there are no millions waiting. Be careful out there.
The Old Wolf has spoken.
