While I am familiar with how the Spanish Prisoner works, my question was 
more about the way it was being introduced.  Certainly more sophisticated 
than an ALL CAPS URGENT LETTER FROM NIGERIA.  Also the amount of money is 
much smaller than most I have seen.  This might actually make it MORE 
plausible to someone than an offer for some unspecified portion 
of  $387,495,000,000,000.00
