I think I'll send the good doctor my bank account number and soc to get the ball rolling just in case. You never know if it might be for real.

Update: Courtesy of Fr. Joe Wilson, check out the Brad Christensen Exhibit in which the Nigerian and other scammers are hilariously answered and taken for the proverbial ride.
