Given he "is so intoxicated to explain" I suggest that more slightly
more restrained refinement might be in order

Forward Fee 419 scam FAIL.

He didn't even offer me the sum of $100,000,000 (ONE HUNDRED MILLION
US DOLLAR) as a sweetener to the deal...

I really don't see the motivation in sending this guy the cash - still
- we could have a whip 'round at ccp4 workshop in Jan?

(A Physics pal of mine had more fun baiting FF419ers -
