I can't imagine why this guy parted with any cash

The BBC carried a story about email scam yesterday, How not to win a million. The victim of this particular scam will probably get compensated from various charitable sources, but how could he fall for it in the first place! I must admit that I did look twice at this email before I hit the delete button, but I would never consider sending truck loads of cash to Amsterdam! At least he had the decency to go public and help highlight the scam for other vulnerable people.
