  1. Similar scams have been around since day one.

    Indeed, about 15 years ago, an in-law of mine was peddling phony green card promises to the USA during breaks from passing counterfeit US hundred dollar bills but fled back to safety in America before he could arrested and charged.

    What a nasty world we live in.
