So, I wired money to a stranger....

OK, I didn't REALLY wire money to a stranger...heck, David and I are old friends by now.  But no, I didn't actually wire him anything.  I looked up what the MTCN # format was and copied a number directly from the wiremoneytoindia.com site, figuring that if they've had that info out there for this long, it's pretty much public knowledge.  Here's my email to my friend David:
David,
I have wired you the money for your shipper.  The details are below.  However, due to a clerical error, instead of $40, $400 was kept.  When your shipper arrives, I’ll give him a check for the additional $360.  I had my wife do the transaction and she misunderstood.  I’m sure you understand.
I look forward to your response.
Regards,
Jeff


Following is a summary of your transaction.
————————————–…
 TRANSACTION DETAILS:
————————————–…
Your Money Transfer Control Number [MTCN] is: 9993093353
 Please use this number for any inquiries.

Man, I can't wait for the response...this is like Christmas, except the things I'm trying to unwrap aren't cool.

Heck, do it yourself. All you have to do is post something for sale on Craig's list and it seems the jackwagons come out of the woodwork.
